The Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, housed under the UCLA Anderson School of Management, is a recognized leader in entrepreneurial education and research at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. Working closely with its board of advisors, the Price Center fosters the study and practice of entrepreneurship and business innovation by providing the foundation on which creativity can flourish and individuals can succeed.

The Price Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation takes a keen interest in developing entrepreneurial competence in its students while maintaining active relationships with UCLA Anderson alumni as strategic partners in many of its initiatives. The Price Center provides a set of integrated academic and extracurricular experiences designed to develop an entrepreneurial competence in MBA students. Its academic program departs from traditional business studies by emphasizing social innovation and producing managers who know how to marshal resources for new wealth creations. Furthermore, alumni and other established professionals have the opportunity to become involved with the Price Center’s academic and experiential programs as workshop leaders, mentors to students, or sponsors of an MBA internship. This interaction creates ways to grow and maintain valuable relationships and also exposes current students to a considerable range of career options, business advice, and willing sponsors.

The UCLA Anderson School of Management and the Price Center work together to provide a challenging, interdisciplinary curriculum for students who intend to embrace global and integrationist thinking, work across boundaries, and muster an uncommon amount of courage to pursue their entrepreneurial vision. First-hand experience in an entrepreneurial environment is vital to the success of the Center’s curriculum. The Price Center funds numerous fellowships designed to afford students real-world business experiences. To encourage entrepreneurial research, the Price Center has established programs such as the Galef Symposium in Business Innovation, which supports the research of Ph.D. students, academic researchers, and faculty whose projects demand an openness to flexibility and new ideas, a predisposition to study innovative methods, and a capacity to see beyond existing paradigms. The Price Center also maintains a strong commitment to serving the nonprofit and small business communities through management development programs and topical seminars. All of these efforts aim to foster the study and practice of entrepreneurship and business innovation.
