Consulting Teams

UCLA Anderson was the first business school to implement “field studies” back in 1967, and since then, thousands of organizations have gained unique insights and a competitive advantage as a result. Our consulting teams offer your company an experienced, professional group of MBAs who research a key business issue and develop a comprehensive strategic business or consulting plan for your company’s leadership team. We gladly work with organizations large and small, across all industries and anywhere in the world.


The plan may involve:

  • Launching products
  • Exploring new markets for existing products
  • Competitive analysis
  • Improving managerial effectiveness
  • Creating effective marketing campaigns
  • Risk assessment
  • Operations analysis
  • Financial modeling
