Easton Technology Leadership Program

Easton Technology Leadership Program

To develop technology leaders through academic excellence and industry exposure. 

Scope

The program, popular among students given their high-tech interests, exposes them to the rapidly transforming technology landscape across different verticals including high-tech, defense, healthcare, education, entertainment & media, retail and financial services - from startups to large corporation.

Easton Program's 3 Pillars

The program leverages UCLA Anderson's students' technology focus and entrepreneurial drive, its faculty's academic excellence and its Alumni & Industry Professionals' (A&IP) experience in the technology sector. 

Academics 

Curricular offerings include courses taught by faculty and alumni & industry professionals. Technology offerings cover areas of emerging technologies and their associated markets; managing technology; product management and development; and web and data analytics and have grown to twenty-one offerings this year. Interactive workshops taught by experts enhance the course offerings in the technology and soft skills domains.

Events & Workshops 

The Easton program aims to equip students with the technology and leadership skills necessary to become technology leaders. To this effort, Easton provides students access to many different non-course activities mainly led by industry professionals. These include workshops (e.g., Agile Workshops, Emotional Intelligence Workshops), talks (e.g. Leadership Style Series, Tech Innovations Panel), as well as various events. 

Industry Mentors

Our goal is to connect Easton students with industry professionals that can serve as role models and advisers to them in their career plans. As an Easton Industry Mentor, you will be able to give back to the community and personally invest in the life and career of a developing business professional. In addition, you will have access to all Easton events and workshops with opportunities to network with fellow industry professionals and UCLA Anderson faculty.
