IS Associates is a UCLA-sponsored organization that is dedicated to the effective management and understanding of information systems and the effective leadership of the information technology functions. The organization provides a management education forum for its membership, which is open to organizations involved in the professional application of information systems to business and research.
The organization includes senior executives, leading consultants and suppliers, government, and UCLA faculty, staff and students in a program of information-sharing and research.
IS Associates promotes awareness of the latest IT leadership and management trends, offers an opportunity to interface with UCLA’s highly respected schools, divisions and departments through direct relationships with the Office of Information Technology and with the Anderson School of Management, provides access to ongoing educational programs and classes, and establishes a collegial environment for personal networking.
IS Associates was established in 1978 as a professional partnership between UCLA Anderson School of Management and corporate and governmental enterprises, and has now moved from Anderson to the Office of Information Technology, where it will offer the same innovative IT leadership.
