Being Savvy About Finances – March 27, 2010 – Segment Four
Caller, Cathy Sandeen, Dean of UCLA Extension, talks about the broad range of opportunities available at the school for people who are either just starting their own business, or who have been in business for a while but need to upgrade their skills. For financial savvy, there are courses such as “Mathematics For Management,” “Finance For Non-Financial Managers,” and “Financial Statement Analysis.” UCLA Extension also has courses specifically on how to use Intuit products, such as beginner and advanced classes on QuickBooks. Most of the courses start April 1 or later, and the prices vary based on the number of sessions taken; moreover, all courses are offered when busy working professionals can take them, such as during the evenings, weekends, and online. Cathy also explains that the typical UCLA Extension student is a mid-career working professional who is either progressing in a given field, or switching to a new one, but they are motivated adult learners who want to be in the classroom.
