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.
Applied Management Research (AMR) is the field study requirement for the full-time MBA program and serves as the capstone project for second-year students. The Center for Global Management supports projects that focus on global social enterprise and community impact to broaden students’ awareness of issues facing entrepreneurial development within emerging markets.
Students can customize their academic preparation in the area of global management and business from a variety of on-campus course offerings that range from global macroeconomics and global health care to understanding the Asia-Pacific economies and evolution in the global mobile industry.
