Welcome to the Entrepreneur Association


Entrepreneur Association

The Entrepreneur Association is among the largest student organizations at the UCLA Anderson School of Management, and offers its more than 600 members a wide range of extracurricular activities, from networking events to experiential learning opportunities. The EA works closely with the Harold and Pauline Price Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, which provides curriculum, mentoring relationships, research and educational programs that prepare MBA candidates for the challenges of management in entrepreneurial environments. The EA takes advantage of its vast resources to hold 100+ events per year, an average of more than three events per week. These include hands-on workshops, intimate networking events with successful entrepreneurs, a world-class business plan competition and a conference at the end of the year.
