OUR Mission

AnderTech provides UCLA Anderson students with tools to launch or advance careers in the tech industry or in tech-related roles. The club will leverage internal and external resources, such as the Easton Center and alumni, to prepare members to be leaders in their post-MBA careers. AnderTech offers members unique, engaging experiences, from impactful development opportunities to valuable career connections, and ultimately aims to position UCLA Anderson as the Top Technology MBA Program.

Our Goals for 2018-2019

Our overall mission is to provide members with comprehensive benefits across educational, career-focused, and community-centric experiences. We aim to both serve our members and position UCLA Anderson as the Top Technology MBA Program through:

  1. Improving Member Experience: We will work to improve upon existing experiences and seek to provide new, exciting opportunities for the AnderTech Community. We plan to offer increased engagement with alumni and provide comprehensive tech-recruiting resources, whether members seek to work in Big Tech or in the LA Start-Up scene.
     

  2. Emphasizing Differentiation Initiatives: Delivering truly unique and valuable experiences to members is an essential factor in promoting Anderson as the premier technology business program. Examples include our new Minimum Viable Product Competition, a multi-school CES Case Competition, the launch of our AnderTech Business Journal.
     

  3. Leveraging Resources: AnderTech must utilize the incredible array of support resources available, from educational access to strong relationships with employers and the technology community. We aim to increase collaboration with the Easton Center, enhance engagement with alumni, and strengthen interactions with other Anderson programs and professional clubs.
     

  4. Arming Members with Tools for Success: Along with Improving Member Experience and Leveraging Resources, AnderTech’s focus should align with offering members the skills and access required for a career in the technology industry. We continue to enhance our Interview Preparation Program and will seek to offer additional education and career related resources throughout the year.
