UCLA Extension’s Custom-Designed Programs 

What is a “custom-designed program?”
  At UCLA Extension, custom-designed programs are programs which are tailored to meet the specific needs of a particular domestic or international group of participants.  Many custom-designed programs are adaptations of other courses and programs that UCLA Extension has offered in the past.

The content of each course or program can be expanded, contracted, and/or adapted to meet the needs of specific clients. These programs can be offered in various instructional intensive formats typically lasting from one to three weeks of instruction; however, some previous programs have been offered in formats of up to twelve weeks.

Custom-designed programs can be delivered at UCLA Extension in Los Angeles or at a client’s worksite in the U.S.  Custom-designed programs can also be delivered to clients overseas.  When programs are held in Los Angeles, relevant course-related site visits can serve to reinforce and complement classroom lectures and discussions.  Experienced interpreters can also be provided as needed.  

UCLA Extension has access to instructors who are leaders in areas such as digital media, education, entertainment, entrepreneurship, environmental issues, financial services, international trade, law, transportation, and many other topics.  The majority of our instructors are working professionals who are practitioners in their respective fields and who bring a practical, hands-on perspective to our courses and programs.  As part of the University of California, Los Angeles, UCLA Extension has a direct link to one of the finest universities in the world.

Organizations seeking to expand management and leadership expertise, as well as encouraging entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity, will surely benefit from UCLA Extension custom-designed programs.
