Special programs offered to recruit underrepresented students or students with disadvantaged backgrounds:The UCLA Anderson School of Management actively seeks highly qualified minority applicants for the MBA program. Our admissions officers play an important role in providing information and guidance for prospective minority applicants. Admissions officers also host an annual Embracing Diversity Weekend and conduct Preview UCLA Anderson activities quarterly. UCLA Anderson sponsors The Riordan Programs (http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x257.xml) for high school, college-aged and post-graduate students, and also partners with outside organizations to increase awareness of MBA programs within the minority community. In the past year, UCLA Anderson and five other UC MBA schools served as academic sponsors of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (http://www.nshmba.org/page/Splash_Page/) National Conference in Anaheim. Our recent partnership with The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (http://www.cgsm.org), the country’s preeminent organization for promoting diversity and inclusion in American business, is in its second year. In addition, we are a proud member of the Ten School Diversity Alliance (TSDA), which travels together to present to undergraduate business groups and recent college graduate organizations. We have also partnered with Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) (http://ml4t.org) and regularly meet with its fellows. This year UCLA Anderson, together with five other UC MBA programs, launched the Summer Institute for Emerging Managers & Leaders (SIEML) for freshmen and sophomore students at HBCUs (http://sieml.universityofcalifornia.edu/who-apply.html). In addition, we host numerous outreach activities, such as Project Echo (http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x22166.xml), that bring students from disadvantaged backgrounds to UCLA Anderson.
