Mind the GAP: Anderson’s Global Access Program
Each year, UCLA Anderson School of Management sends teams of talented professionals all across the globe to work with select companies. In their final-year as MBAs in training, these students invest thousands of hours in researching new growth opportunities that will take their Global Access Program company to new heights.
The Anderson Global Access Program (GAP) is a unique opportunity for students and corporations alike. This six-month program pairs teams of final-year FEMBA students with international companies, allowing them to work closely with top management in identifying strengths, analyzing weaknesses, and pinpointing opportunities. These teams develop an investment-quality business plan to move their GAP company to its next level of growth.
Companies that qualify for GAP enrollment will meet one of the following corporate requirements:
- A technology-based product or service company with emphasis in high technology
- Independent business or a business unit within a larger corporation
- U.S. or foreign-based company that wants to sell outside their home country
- Entrepreneurial company with a track record and current revenues for a product/service
Since 1998, the Global Access Program has generated over $200 million in direct investment. With its results-driven projects and real-world benefits, Anderson’s GAP helps students and companies grow faster and achieve more. You can find more information about the GAP on Anderson’s website.
