This year's Summer Institute will be held in partnership with the UCLA Anderson School of Management. UCLA Anderson develops principled global leaders who possess integrity, resilience, and cultural and intellectual openness. UCLA Anderson benefits from, and contributes to, the Los Angeles area, a diverse epicenter of cultures fueled by powerful connections to the Pacific Rim, Latin America and points in between. The Los Angeles area is the world's 15th largest economy. It is home to star technology industries that produce four times the GDP of Silicon Valley and is the launch pad for more than 300,000 entrepreneurial businesses, more than twice as many as any other region in the U.S.
