Mission and Vision
 


To lead the UCLA Anderson alumni network, by fostering lifelong connections among the school, its students & alumni worldwide.

To achieve the most connected alumni base of any major business school — engaging alumni with the same passion and activity we enjoyed while in school.

To be proud of our peers and enable their individual success, counting it as our mutual success.

To enhance the reputation of the school and the resulting value of the UCLA Anderson education to both students and alumni.




Letter from the President
 
The culture of Anderson’s 42,000+ alumni network across 75+ countries stands alone. Not only do our alumni reach the highest professional apexes, but also they naturally reach back and bring others along. It’s core to the spirit that makes Anderson exceptional. That is why it is with deep humility and excitement that I begin my service as your UCLA Anderson Alumni Network President for the next two years.
