Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Bob Iger was honored with the UCLA Anderson School of Management John Wooden Global Leadership Award during an evening that celebrated impressive records. At the UCLA gala Thursday night at the Beverly Hilton, Iger's won-loss record was compared to that of the legendary UCLA basketball coach, who posted a 620-147 record in his 27 years at the helm. Since Iger took the reins of the Burbank entertainment giant in 2005, the value of Disney's stock has tripled.

Debate continued Thursday over the upcoming switch that will end any state funding for UCLA's MBA program and make it dependent on tuition and donations. UC system President Mark G. Yudof this week approved the plan with some measures to ensure the program remains under UC control.  The proposal for financial "self-support"  was advocated for nearly three years by leaders of the UCLA Anderson School of Management, but critics contend it is a step toward privatization of a public university.

Niche markets: A May 25 article on niche marketing stated that the Rob Clark condo conversion is in West Hollywood. It is in Los Angeles. That same article reported that the purchase price of a Villas at Carbon Beach condominium included membership to the Malibu Beach Inn. That potential partnership fell through; membership is not included. Also, the UCLA Anderson School of Management was misidentified as the UCLA Anderson School of Marketing.

The Method is dead. Long live the Method. Spend an afternoon with David Lee Strasberg, the ambitious 38-year-old son of legendary acting guru Lee Strasberg, and you just might walk away with the idea that something revolutionary is going on at the Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. That would be overstating matters. This family-run school with flagships in West Hollywood and New York still finds its raison d'être in what Strasberg himself identified as the training of the actor's internal skills.

California's economic recovery will lag behind the nation's in 2010, but then overtake it as U.S. consumers start buying again and goods come through the region's ports and transportation hubs, according to a forecast released Wednesday by economists at the UCLA Anderson School of Business. The state's unemployment rate won't fall below double digits until 2012, economists predicted. "It's going to take a while," said Jerry Nickelsburg, a senior economist with the forecast. "We dug a pretty big hole."

UC President Mark G. Yudof has approved a controversial plan to turn UCLA's MBA program into a self-supporting unit that depends wholly on tuition without state funding. The approval comes after nearly three years of debate over what critics alleged was an attempt to privatize part of a public university. But the final version is much less ambitious than the original proposal and keeps the UCLA master's degree in business administration, which enrolls about 720 students, firmly under central UC control.

The student's admissions essay for Boston University's MBA program was about persevering in the business world. "I have worked for organizations in which the culture has been open and nurturing, and for others that have been elitist. In the latter case, arrogance becomes pervasive, straining external partnerships. " Another applicant's essay for UCLA's Anderson School of Management was about his father. He "worked for organizations in which the culture has been open and nurturing, and for others that have been elitist.

The long-suffering Inland Empire economy is going to have to suffer a little longer. Unemployment won't reach single digits until 2014 and the construction sector will remain tepid until at least 2011. That's according to a forecast to be released Wednesday by economists from Claremont McKenna College and the UCLA Anderson School of Management. The Inland Empire, which includes Riverside and San Bernardino counties, is suffering because key industries were hit hard during the Great Recession.

The Anderson School of Management's proposal to move toward financial independence from the state is not a giant leap from public to private. For years, the UCLA business school, like many other UC professional schools, has been forced to find increasing sums of private money to maintain its operations. Tuition for California residents already is $41,000, and for nonresidents, $49,000. More than 80% of the school's budget already comes from private sources, and when other factors are accounted for, it's closer to 94%. Numbers are similar at several other UC schools, such as in dentistry, law and business.

Understandable as the University of California's precarious budget situation is, raising tuition to the level of private universities for specific programs is unacceptable. We see problems with both the process and the substance of the drastic proposal to essentially privatize the UCLA Anderson School of Management and charge $50,000 for in-state tuition, as reported on Sept. 9 by The Times. On the process side, we expect administrators to involve students in the decisions that shape students' lives, especially a decision of this magnitude.

UCLA's Anderson School of Management wants to end its reliance on state funds under a controversial proposal that would be the first such shift to self-sufficiency in the cash-strapped UC system and could provide a model for other programs seeking freedom to raise tuition and faculty salaries. Anderson, which offers master's degrees and doctorates, hopes to wean itself off state funds by 2015 and to replace that $5.6 million a year with additional private donations and tuition levels closer to that of private business schools.
