Advancing Global Research And Course Development

 

Advancing the global research and course development efforts of UCLA Anderson faculty and students is at the core of the Center for Global Management’s mission. Research grants, academic conferences, a global management specialization curriculum and support of the global capstones projects across MBA programs are central to accomplishing the center's mission.

 

Featured Global Research

 

At a research university such as UCLA, a highly effective means of increasing the global content of courses comes from support of the global research of faculty, Ph.D. and MBA students. The Center for Global Management provides seed funding to support UCLA Anderson faculty and doctoral students in developing global research and courses with business, management and societal relevance that advance global management thinking and global management and economic issues, globalization, international relations and issues of global/regional cooperation.
