Our Mission Statements

UCLite offers management education programs in collaboration with alumni from top ranked public business and engineering schools: Berkeley Haas and Fung Institute. UCLite provides students access to a high impact, transformational learning environment by focusing on three core elements:

Our curriculum, students, faculty and footprint are all globally oriented. Our goal is to develop leaders who can lead with a global mindset, who have a solid understanding of how the global economy works and who are comfortable working in a globally distributed workplace.

We use this term to refer to world-class education. Our founding academic institutions are ranked amongst the best academic institutions in the world. Our faculty comprises outstanding professors who are recognized and awarded for their thought leadership in management.

We focus on providing a transformational educational experience. This is measured by our ability to improve our students’ potential to lead at three levels: businesses, people and themselves. Our courses and evaluations are rigorous. Our teaching pedagogy focuses heavily on peer-to-peer learning and learning by doing.
