UCLA (Anderson) is the highest ranked school in the second largest metropolitan economic area of the United States. It is located in the western portion of Los Angeles, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.

In terms of placement at major firms it is generally the second strongest school on the West Coast after Stanford. However, in some years the school has exhibited rather weak employment statistics relative to other Elite schools. Nonetheless, this has not always been the case. For instance, c. 1988 UCLA had the highest employment rate at graduation of all of the the elites. UCLA also had the highest employment rate at graduation (i.e. percent of class with offers) for the elites c. 1992.

Strengths of UCLA Anderson include Marketing, Finance, and e-ship.

In one year, between UCLA and Michigan UCLA had more placements at LB and MS. Michigan had more placements at McKinsey and ATK.

Relative to Dartmouth, UCLA had more placements at LB and MS but fewer at GS.

Relative to Cornell, UCLA had more placements at GS for two years, tied one year, and had fewer placements one year.
