Global Access Program offers Finnish companies a tailor-made market-entry plan for the US or other international markets.
The Global Access Program market entry plan is done by experienced business professionals who are completing their MBA degree simultaneously at UCLA Anderson School of Management.
During the intensive six month work period your company gets an individually tailored market entry plan from their assigned MBA team. The team members also act as consultants in this process.
During the program (July to December) the company will work together with the team to execute:
In order for the program to achieve its goal, companies must have close-knit and open communication with their MBA team. The process will be supervised and coordinated by staff from the Anderson School of Management.
GAP starts annually in July and ends early December. Your company can apply for the GAP program in October/November and February/March. During the application process representatives from UCLA and Business Finland will interview applicant companies.
Over 250 Finnish companies have participated the Global Access Program since 1999. See all Finnish GAP companies here (pdf).
