Anderson School of Management
In 1987, UCLA's Graduate School of Management adopted the name of
entrepreneur and UCLA alumnus John E. Anderson, in appreciation
for a $15-million gift from him and his wife, Marion. At the time,
it was the largest gift to education from an individual.
John Anderson graduated with honors from UCLA in 1940 with a bachelor's
degree in business administration. He has an M.B.A. from Harvard
Business School and a J.D. from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles.
Throughout much of his career, Anderson taught classes at UCLA.
