Professor Profiles: Sanjay Sood, UCLA Anderson School of Management

Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose an MBA program to attend, but the educational experience itself is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor as identified by students. Today, we profile Sanjay Sood at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Sanjay Sood (“Entertainment Marketing,” “Behavioral Research in Marketing,” “Elements of Marketing,” “Applied Management Research”) is an associate professor of marketing and the faculty director of the Center for Managing Enterprises in Media, Entertainment, and Sports at Anderson.

One second-year student we interviewed for this guide said Sood brings “a lot of practical experience to the classroom” and uses connections from his work with Procter & Gamble to enhance his classes.
