Moment For two years while working full-time at the NFL and as an Anderson student, I was able to create and manage an NFL case competition. In the first year we pitted Anderson against Marshall. That was followed the next season by introducing Haas and San Diego State into the mix. The final presentations were held on set at the NFL Network.
In Josh's own words
"I decided to apply to UCLA Anderson not for one single reason, but for a number of factors. I've always loved academic environments, and stepping onto the campus at Anderson I could feel the intellectual curiosity of the students and the academic rigor of the courses. I also got a sense that Anderson was a true community. Being new to L.A., it was important to me at the time to immerse myself in an environment of good people were I could build lasting relationships that would span much farther than the quad in Westwood. Additionally, I knew that an MBA from Anderson would give me a leg up in my career development. Nearly four years later, I can unequivocally say that applying to and attending UCLA Anderson was one of the best decisions of my life. The coursework I took was fascinating and incredibly helpful in my professional career. The people I've met have become my closest friends in Los Angeles. The career opportunities I've encountered as a result of my degree here have also been immeasurable."
