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 do feel that career choice is a very significant part of our decision to attend UCLA Anderson but it's also who you have become and how the job fits you — making you a perfect match. (Executive Coach) Pam Schulz would help me to really see all the pros and cons but she always comes back to me: "What do you want to do? What kind of environment do you want to be in? What do you want to be in your next step of your career?" She makes me think in that way — to really make me make the right decision.”
