In today’s rapidly changing global marketplace, it is essential that professional managers be conversant with the latest concepts and principles of management. At the UCLA John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management, which is consistently ranked among the best such schools in the nation, students prepare to become first-rate managers with both specialized skills and a broad understanding of the general economic, business, and managerial environment. This background enables them to become effective and efficient directors of organizations and people whether they are in the private, public, or not-for-profit sector.
Specifically, the Anderson School offers the business community a wide range of higher education programs that provide state-of-the-art information in a variety of fields. Through its faculty, the school advances the art and science of management by engaging in fundamental and cutting-edge research in all fields of management and by educating scholars who can continue to create this new knowledge.
Students come from diverse professional and educational backgrounds and seek equally diverse personal and professional goals. Whether they pursue the professional M.B.A., the academic M.S., or a Ph.D. in Management, they graduate with a broad understanding of people and organizations and with a sound technical background in the economic and mathematical concepts of management planning and decision making.
The school offers a variety of programs leading to graduate degrees at the master’s and doctoral levels. These include both an academic (M.S.) and professional (M.B.A.) master’s, a Master of Financial Engineering (M.F.E.), as well as an Executive M.B.A. Program designed for working managers who are moving from specialized areas into general management and a three-year Fully Employed M.B.A. Program for emerging managers. The school also offers part-time dual Executive M.B.A. degrees with the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School and with the Universidad Adolfo Ibanez (UAI) in Santiago, Chile, that prepare participants for top positions in organizations around the world. A Ph.D. in Management is also offered, as are a certificate Executive Program and research conferences and seminars for experienced managers.
The school also offers an undergraduate minor in Accounting and several undergraduate courses in management. Enrollment in these courses, although open to all University students who have completed the requisites, is limited. The school limits the number of courses taken by undergraduate students to 11.
Lifelong learning plays a critical role in the success of today’s business leaders. The Anderson School’s Office of Executive Education offers more than 40 innovative open enrollment and customized programs that address complex and rapidly changing business issues. The Executive Program covers such diverse areas as strategic planning, organizational design, and competitive positioning. See http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x24218.xml.
