This year, UCLA Anderson’s Applied Management Research program will help Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s 10,000 Strong initiative reach its goal of creating 10,000 local jobs for veterans.

Mayor Garcetti's Office of Veteran Affairs handles the program, connecting employers with veterans in the hope they can leverage existing skills into employment. The initiative is designed to close the gap between employers and veterans by identifying opportunities and increasing job readiness. “Our AMR team is focused on making this effort practical by conducting research with a wide variety of stakeholders on all sides of the initiative,” says Paul Brandano, executive director of business development for the Global Access Program.
“They hope to create an operating framework to make this
goal a reality.”

Anderson’s AMR team of five second-year students/consultants will put in 1,000 to 2,000 hours of strategic work helping 10,000 Strong partners, including Cedars-Sinai, Panda Express, LAPD and Dreamworks Entertainment, to develop programs to help veterans connect with career and business resources.
