Lifelong Learning Series at the USD School of Business

Your Netflix queue is empty. Now what? It’s time for a dose of professional development. The University of San Diego School of Business invites our alumni, students, and prospective students to a four-part virtual series that will deepen your understanding of the financial and supply chain industries as well as teach you skills to prosper during these challenging times. 

The USD School of Business Lifelong Learning Webinar Series brings four of our resident experts right to your living room. The series features Professors of Business Law Craig and Linda Barkacs, Lecturer in Finance Carl Wiese, Professor of Operations Management David Pyke and Lecturer Victoria Halsey. 

Each 45-minute session will teach you new ways to think about negotiations, financial forecasting, how supply chains are managed and presentation skills. Plus, this is an interactive experience where you’ll get the opportunity to ask our professors any questions you may have.

Our staff and faculty at the USD School of Business are committed not just to a student’s four-year education but to their lifelong educational pursuits — and our Lifelong Learning Series is just one of many ways that we bring unparalleled learning opportunities to our Torero community at all stages of their learning cycle.

Lifelong learning is the ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability as well as competitiveness and employability.-- Bridget Breitenberg, assistant director of alumni relations
