Going Global; Becoming Attuned

“There’s no way that you can be a successful business person in the 21st century if you don’t know the world.”

— Sebastian Edwards
Henry Ford II Chair in International Management; Faculty Director, Center for Global Management

To successfully complete the MBA, all UCLA Anderson students need to fulfill a global requirement through completion of one of the following:

(1) Participation in a global immersion course
(2) Completion of an international Applied Management Research field study project 
(3) Enrollment in one of the many on-campus global management elective courses

 

Spend Your Winter, Spring and Summer Breaks Learning Abroad

 

Concentrating on the school’s target regions of Asia and Latin America, UCLA Anderson offers four-unit global immersion elective courses designed to expose students to a country’s economy, political environment, major industries and businesses, local culture, key historical events and the many aspects of conducting business outside the United States. Each course includes an immersive one-week in-country for a blend of guest speakers (business executives, policy makers, opinion leaders and entrepreneurs), company and startup visits, as well as cultural activities and networking with alumni.

The Center for Global Management supports field study projects focused on social enterprise and community impact globally. From education and health care to conservation and labor rights, through these projects students learn about the issues facing entrepreneurs and nonprofits in emerging markets.
