Robert Fagnani (MBA ’15) leads the Anderson Admission Corps (AAC), which has a mandate from Anderson to increase three factors within Admissions this year: the number of applications, the quality of applicants and the yield (attendance rate) of those applicants. To this end, Rob oversees a recently recruited batch of 50 students who will be responsible for 80% of the student interviews for the Class of 2017 as well as Group Information Sessions for the coming year. Two “low hanging fruit” items the AAC will be pursuing this year include finding a way to better display the Anderson culture on a revised UCLA Anderson website to be unveiled this spring and improving the way in which visiting students experience UCLA. Many current Anderson students remember their campus visit, including a class visit, information session, and — most likely — a lot of down time. “The AAC wants to provide [visitors] with a more comprehensive day,” Fagnani states. This includes coffee chats, lunches and facilitating interaction with the centers that are of interest to each candidate. According to Fagnani, “Ultimately, it’s about finding prospective [students], communicating the Anderson culture to them and creating a personal connection.”
