The Business School Advantage

“One of the nice things about UCLA Anderson is that it's a school within a school. At Anderson, you run into familiar faces, enjoy comfortable chairs in the best library, mingle with classmates and MBAs at the Anderson-wide weekly party, and then when you want a bit more variety you have the entire UCLA campus a few steps away.”
