The Greater China Business Association (GCBA) aims to provide a forum for UCLA Anderson students, alumni and faculty who have business and/or personal interests in the Greater China region to learn, share and network.
The GCBA serves as an identity club as well as a professional club. We help students from the Greater China region build a cultural community as well as transition into life and careers in the U.S.. Meanwhile, we aim to connect the Anderson community to career and business opportunities in the Greater China region.

Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration
The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most prominent festivals on the Chinese lunar calendar. We invite the entire first-year class to join the celebration and enjoy some mooncakes with your newfound family.
Lunar New Year Anderson Afternoon
In partnership with AMSA and the KBSA, we bring the UCLA Anderson community together for our annual celebration of the Lunar New Year. During a winter-quarter Anderson Afternoon, we transform the North Terrace into a sea of red with a wide array of celebratory activities and culinary treats.
China Days on the Job (DOJ)
The GCBA organizes a weeklong career trek in the Greater China region, which provides students an opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about companies in a variety of industries, explore employment opportunities and connect with local alumni.
“Way Beyond Campus Recruiting” Career Panel
We welcome anyone with career interests in the Greater China region to this panel discussion. Second-years who successfully navigated the recruiting process will share their experiences and the resources available.
Alumni Dinners for Eight (D48s) and Webinars
We connect students and accomplished alums, either in a D48 setting for those in Southern California or through webinars for those elsewhere. These are unique opportunities for networking, career advice and thought-provoking dialogue.
