Student Perspectives


    “Although I am an engineer by trade, I had very limited knowledge and intuition of how tech leaders view the evolving landscape from a “30K ft view” prior to entering the program.”

    Stevie Rhim  (FEMBA ’19)
    Applications Engineer, Infeon Technologies


    “Thank you Easton and UCLA Anderson for a wonderful journey! I think Easton was a big part in achieving my goals and advancing my career in digital strategy and technology management.”

    Jay Nanda  (FEMBA ’20)


    “As a non-tech person before my MBA, I immersed myself in the center's offerings and learned a lot from each workshop and the speaker events.”

    Eric Hsu  (MBA ’20)


    “The Easton Technology Management Center has given me both a point of view on a wide range of topics across tech and a ready framework for thinking about tech-related business opportunities.”

    William Ames  (MBA ’20)


    “It definitely added a value to my technology career. Even though I worked in high tech industry all my career I learnt a lot about contextual leadership and changing trends in the industry.”

    Vikram Saurabh  (EMBA ’20)


    “My expectations were exceeded. The Easton Center went above and beyond to create a rich, robust learning environment. Similar to innovation itself, Easton seemed to dynamically evolve with the technology landscape. I never felt like we were playing catch up. Rather, Easton kept us thinking ahead.”

    Andrew Shannon  (FEMBA ’20)
