UCLA Anderson’s Global Access Program is putting brain power to work for an Australian nonprofit expanding its reach to heal minds.

Black Dog Institute, based at Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, New South Wales, Australia, is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, through clinical expertise, research and education.
Five MBA students are working closely with Black Dog Institute to investigate the market potential of a B2C application to provide health care and wellness support to people suffering from mood disorders. “The team has done tremendous work to understand the market dynamics and has interviewed more than 100 key stakeholders in the United States,” says Paul Brandano, executive director of business development for the Global Access Program. “They are well on their way to delivering an exciting result to their client.”

In fact, the students will spend more than 2,000 hours in research, analysis and consultations developing an investment-grade strategic plan, which includes comprehensive competitive analysis and specific market-launch strategies, to help expand Black Dog Institute’s ability to ease suffering for more clients.
