UCLA Anderson Professor on the Savings Habits of Immigrants – UCLA Anderson Review
UCLA Anderson Professor of Economics Paola Giulano, along with colleagues from the London School of Economics, recently published research on the savings habits of immigrant communities.
When individuals leave home, the team asked, what happens to the way that they save their money in the destination country? After observing 40,000 households in the United Kingdom, one of the largest destinations worldwide for immigrants, the team came up with a number of scenarios.
Basing their discoveries on total amount of monthly savings; tendency to save; and the degree to which wealth either changes or not over a period of time, the team revealed that families who saved in their home countries tended to save more across generations when they arrived in the UK. At the higher end of this scale were China and Ireland, and at the lower-saving end were Uganda and Pakistan.

Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business rose ten places in Bloomberg Businessweek‘s 2018 list of best business schools to 65th overall.
Dean Deryck J. van Rensburg said of the elevated standing, “Considering there are nearly 2,000 business schools globally, to be ranked in the top 65 sends a clear message to high-achieving professionals that we are delivering positive outcomes, both on-site and online, for our students.”
Graziadio is also a leader on Bloomberg‘s list of entrepreneurship programs, ranking 13th in the U.S. and 16th globally. The Princeton Review also gave Graziadio a nod, ranking it the 14th best online MBA and the 7th best on the ‘Greatest Resources for Minority Students’ list.
“The continued recognition as one of the country’s finest institutions for business education is driven in part by our core values of integrity and innovation, as well as our desire to shape leaders that drive meaningful, positive change in their global organizations and communities,” van Rensburg says.
