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. Typically, these courses include a travel component, however during the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual offerings are also available. Courses with a travel component include 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.
