“Credit and finance can be like prize fighters: securitized mortgage meltdown vs. adequate bank capital or Greek Credit vs. European trade finance. This conference will help mold them as team players instead knock-out artists.” – Roger L. Torneden, Ph.D., CFP®, Director of Business, Management and Legal Programs, UCLA Extension

Continuing Education’s Increasing Role in Global Credit & Finance


Dr. Roger L. Torneden, CFP®, CPCU, CLI-CA®, Director of Business, Management and Legal Programs, UCLA Extension

Much of a formal business and technology undergraduate education is outdated between the classwork and the job requirements. Intellectual property travels worldwide at the speed of light while textbooks can change at a speed of inventory management, part-time author attention, and downsized editorial staffs. Education, regardless of traditional frictions, has moved quickly from in-class to on-line; Traditional education cost all but rules out medium and lower income students while student loan balances seriously threaten significant defaults. Where are we headed? How does my own company staff remain competitive by keeping up with technology development and manufacturing abroad? Do we have to just accept that U.S. education, in general, produces sub-standard (and declining) learning results? We can’t solve all the U.S. problems but we can better manage our own, as well as our company, learning experiences.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how you and your employees can stay competitive with affordable options
  • The magnitude of job-related education issues (U.S. vs. Asia)
  • How highly job-relevant education can be accessed via part-time programs
  • What do we know about tomorrow’s professional development toolkit?
  • As senior managers of organizations, profit and non-profit, what should our game-plan include for “best practice” training and education?
  • And much more
