UCLA Anderson School of Management ranks among the top-tier business schools in the world, producing leaders in finance, marketing, accounting and business economics.
The UCLA Anderson School of Management — a global leader among business and management schools — was the first professional school established at UCLA. The newly created College of Commerce, as it was called then, admitted its first students in fall 1936 and offered training in four disciplines: accounting, finance, marketing and general business.
Today, UCLA Anderson annually educates more than 1,600 students enrolled in M.B.A. and doctoral programs, and approximately 2,000 executives and managers in executive education programs. The school’s departments are perennially ranked among the best in the world, and its faculty, renowned for their research and teaching, combine with rigorous academic programs, successful alumni and world-class facilities to provide an unmatched learning environment in the heart of Southern California.
Among UCLA Anderson’s many innovative programs and centers built through the combination of private and public support is the award-winning UCLA Anderson Forecast, one of the most widely watched and often-cited economic outlooks for California and the nation; the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate, a collaboration between UCLA Anderson and the UCLA School of Law that provides the real estate community with economic and demographic research; the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, which advances both the theory and practice of entrepreneurship while preparing M.B.A. students for the challenges of management; and the Riordan Programs, which foster diversity in the business community.
UCLA Anderson’s mission is to lead management thinking and prepare the next generation of leaders for institutions across the globe. Its graduates enter the workforce ready to lead enterprises and create value for their stakeholders. They are management experts who are smart enough to identify new opportunities and agile enough to adapt quickly to ever-changing market and economic conditions.
The enduring value of a UCLA Anderson education is evidenced by our M.B.A. graduates’ successful climb up the corporate ladder and by our doctoral graduates’ rise through the professorial ranks at leading academic institutions around the world.
