Be a Better Entrepreneur

"As a business owner and a manager of a small team, after going through Organizational Behavior with Professor Corinne Bendersky I've already made changes to the way I manage my own little team and added things that she's recommended. The class has already made an impact in my daily life that translates directly to my pocket as an entrepreneur."

Career Coaching

“I have been beyond excited to be a part of the UCLA Anderson family and immediately took advantage of the resources provided by the Career Management Center. Before the program even started, I was approached with a new job opportunity aligned with my ultimate career goal. Executive Coach Gordon Hill coached me throughout the entire process, from interview to the final negotiations. I received the exact offer I had hoped for and wouldn't have gotten it without Gordon's help!”
