UCLA Anderson School of Management is a world-renowned learning and research institution with a decidedly forward focus. Never content with how things are, we look to the future to discover and chart what will be. In short, we Think in the Next. Our mission is to prepare leaders for the 21st century, arming them with a world view and a sense of purpose to make a lasting difference in organizations and communities around the world. Our students and alumni, faculty and staff share a common ethos defined by three qualities: 1) We share success: performance and innovation are not about winning at the expense of others; 2) We think fearlessly: we are unafraid to experiment with new ideas and approaches; and 3) We drive change: we are dissatisfied unless we can measure our efforts against tangible impact. Our 36,000 alumni globally include leaders at the forefront of organizational innovation in every industry, from investment management to social impact, from consulting to technology start-ups. Our faculty has developed game-changing initiatives to help workers save more for retirement, to transform K–12 education management and to alleviate global poverty by bringing the poorest members of society into the financial system. Each year, UCLA Anderson's MBA, Fully-Employed MBA, Executive MBA, UCLA-NUS Global Executive MBA program, Master of Financial Engineering and doctoral programs educate 2,000 students while our Executive Education program trains an additional 2,000 professionals. This Next generation of leaders will define the new direction of business for the 21st century.
