UCLA Anderson Joins Consortium for Graduate Study in Management
The Anderson School of Management at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is the latest business school to join the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a national nonprofit organization that works to promote diversity and inclusion on American business school campuses and in American business in general.
Becoming the Consortium’s sixteenth member school earlier this month, UCLA Anderson joins several other top business schools in a shared commitment to help increase opportunities for MBA candidates of all backgrounds to attend top-ranked institutions. The Consortium awards merit-based, full-tuition fellowships to promising candidates at each of its member schools. Beginning in the fall of 2010, the Consortium will begin recruiting prospective MBA students for UCLA Anderson, with the first class graduating in the spring of 2013.
“We’ll be enriching the learning experiences of our students through a student body that reflects a diverse set of perspectives, backgrounds and life experiences, and that’s a strategic priority for our school,” Anderson Dean Judy Olian said in a statement announcing the school’s membership. “As our students prepare for global leadership roles, they must be exposed to a range of perspectives, cultures, and world views. Through the diverse pipeline of students who participate in the Consortium, that preparation will be enhanced,” she continued.
As a Consortium member, UCLA Anderson joins the University of California Berkeley, which also joined the organization this year. Other Consortium members include Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Emory University, Indiana University – Bloomington, University of Michigan, New York University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Rochester, University of Southern California, The University of Texas at Austin, University of Virginia, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Wisconsin – Madison and Yale University.
