UCLA Anderson School of Management today announced the publication of a new online journal chronicling its faculty’s cutting-edge research into crucial issues in business, the economy, and the wider world.
The UCLA Anderson Review presents to a broad audience the research that regularly appears in leading academic journals. The Review’s content ranges from brief accounts of individual faculty research projects to long-read articles examining in-depth the issues explored by groups of UCLA Anderson faculty.
The Review joins other leading graduate business school publications in making available to a global audience of business leaders, fellow academic researchers, policy makers and others the substantial intellectual capital that UCLA Anderson possesses and adds to each day.
“A key priority for all of us at Anderson is to showcase the impact of our faculty’s wide-ranging research, and make it accessible to students, alumni, business professionals, the media and others,” said UCLA Anderson Dean Judy Olian. “We are pleased to share the inaugural edition of the UCLA Anderson Review, offering important and practical insights derived from the rigorous scholarship of our faculty.”
In its launch issue, the Review takes a broad look at research into retirement savings, academic work that illustrates how, under a single roof at Anderson, a handful of faculty members are individually and collectively expanding understanding of how to solve one of the country’s biggest financial and societal problems.
The first issue also examines UCLA Anderson research into the increasingly complex world of accountable care organizations in healthcare, and how their dealings with specialist healthcare organizations can produce both better patient outcomes and greater financial stability for clinicians. Research that questions the risk-and-reward balance offered investors in highly leveraged U.S. companies is included, along with articles on how even the best-run workplaces can see employee morale undermined by a single snarky co-worker; a surprising finding on what actually gets consumers to reduce household energy consumption and keep to those habits; the relationship between corporate wellness programs and productivity; and more.
UCLA Anderson School of Management is among the leading business schools in the world, with faculty members globally renowned for their teaching excellence and research in advancing management thinking. Located in Los Angeles, UCLA Anderson’s MBA, Fully Employed MBA, Executive MBA, UCLA-NUS Global Executive MBA for Asia Pacific, Master of Financial Engineering, Master of Science in Business Analytics, doctoral and executive education programs embody the school’s Think in the Next ethos.
