Events & Workshops (Overview)
The Easton Program aims to equip students with the managerial 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., Social Media Marketing Workshops, Sales Workshops), talks (e.g. Leadership Style Series, Keynotes), as well as various events.
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.
