One of her Anderson field study colleagues says she was incredibly smart, low-key, exuded quiet confidence, had a wide range of interests, and loved yoga.

Fortune includes her on its list of the 50 most important leaders in the world after previously naming her one of the “50 Most Powerful Women in Business.”

Adweek once called her the “the most important person in advertising.”

Forbes included her among “the 100 most powerful women in the world.”

For us at UCLA Anderson, she’s “Susan” — Susan Wojcicki (’98), the newly appointed CEO of YouTube and member of our Board of Visitors. We are honored that Susan will be our 2014 Commencement Speaker.
