Note from the Directors

What another remarkable year this has been. The CGM continues to globalize and enhance the student experience and transform the learning environment at UCLA Anderson. Through its breadth of academic courses, innovative programming, engagement of faculty across disciplines and interface with the broader UCLA campus, the CGM had enjoyed making enormous impact - within UCLA Anderson, across the UCLA campus and externally in the global business, academic, nonprofit and alumni communities.  

Our coverage of regions, topics and issues equips our students to become successful global leaders and active participants in shaping a better world while broadening their understanding and awareness of global issues and their impact on international business. By supporting the research efforts of faculty, MBA and doctoral students, the CGM further advances UCLA Anderson as a global thought leader and contributes to the educational and research mission of the university. The involvement of an engaged and impressive board, coupled with expansion of partnerships and alumni engagement, continue to strengthen the reputation and footprint of UCLA Anderson and UCLA globally. 

Innovative new courses were offered on global trends and non-market and political risks affecting business and management practices. During the year, around 900 students enrolled in nine different on-campus global management electives and seven global immersion courses. From exploring technology transformation in Shenzhen and Hong Kong to understanding entrepreneurship and innovation in Vietnam and South Africa, and studying the business environments and opportunities in Japan and Chile; and from examining the long-lasting effects of authoritarian central planning on economic development in Central Europe, and learning how Colombia has transformed itself into one of Latin America's leading economies; our global immersion courses have provided many transformative learning experiences, embodied "One Anderson" and offered significant networking opportunities. These courses were complemented by international exchanges with partner schools such as London Business School in the U.K., Insper in Brazil and Tel Aviv University's Coller School of Management in Israel. We also welcomed more than 250 students from top institutions in Australia, France, the Netherlands, Singapore and Spain to our global management seminars. 

Advancing the global research and course development efforts of UCLA Anderson faculty and students is at the core of the CGM’s mission. The CGM continued to support research projects that focus on global social enterprise and community impact to broaden students’ awareness of entrepreneurial development within emerging markets. Projects focused on environmental conservation and preservation, social entrepreneurship, empowering low-income women, microfinance, education, sustainable infrastructure investments, mobile technology, global health and eradicating rural poverty. On campus and around the globe, the center was engaged in around 50 events that provided opportunities across various platforms for students enrolled in the MBA, MFE, MSBA and Ph.D. programs, along with prospective and admitted students and alumni, to learn, engage and feel connected.
