The UCLA Anderson School of Management is building its reputation as a leading institution for international business management graduate students.� Dean Judy Olian is traveling to select countries to meet with media and business leaders to highlight the school’s capabilities.
UCLA contracted Valencia, Perez & Echeveste Public Relations (VPE) in Los Angeles to arrange a media tour for Dean Olian with key business and media leaders in Monterrey and Mexico City in early November 2007.� VPE utilized PRGN partner agency Guerra Castellanos & Asociados (GC&A) in Mexico City to handle on-site logistics.�
