"For 100 years, UCLA Extension has been educating students to be successful. Our UCLA-approved curriculum delivered by leading experts and practitioners in the field, offers students the unique opportunity to supplement curriculum with real-time case studies as they evolve in Los Angeles, which if were a nation would be the 19th largest economy in the world. Each day brings a diversity of world leaders and business icons to campus to motivate a new generation of talent. We are very proud of our innovative collaboration with EDHEC Business School. This September, we welcomed very bright and enthusiastic students to our campus. We were all excited for the EDHEC International BBA students to join the UCLA family and be able to provide them with the tools and access to move closer to accomplishing their goals. The next year of their lives will be filled with competency-based learning paired with projects, teamwork and invention. The other students in their classes and instructors will gain just as much from the experience and develop lasting networks that go beyond borders. I have no doubt that when the students graduate from our International Trade and Commerce program and become members of the UCLA Alumni Association, they will complete the remainder of their EDHEC degree with vigour and go out into the world ready for the challenges of the new economy. These graduates will be highly differentiated from their peers with a well-rounded, unique, academic experience from two great brands. We are looking forward to a long collaboration with EDHEC as we explore the Future of Education together."
