UCLA Anderson professor David Ravetch will share an insightful lecture that takes a look at life’s motivations and how your financial habits change your mood, your life and your wallet. The event will commence with a catered reception at 6 p.m. followed by the lecture at 7 p.m.
Ravetch has been a UCLA faculty member for over 30 years and is well recognized for his passion for teaching. He teaches various accounting courses and is involved with MBA Programs at UCLA and UCSD. When Ravetch first began teaching at UCLA, the current undergraduate accounting program was in its infancy stages and UCLA was not yet a major contender for recruitment efforts by the international accounting firms. In the fall of 1995, under the guidance and direction of Ravetch, the accounting minor was the first approved minor at UCLA. Ravetch served as the director of the undergraduate accounting program for seven years. Today, the UCLA Accounting Minor is recognized as one of the strongest undergraduate accounting program and UCLA graduates are heavily recruited by the international accounting firms. Ravetch has been named Favorite Accounting Instructor, as voted by the accounting students, as well as, Most Recommended Instructor, as voted by students, campus wide. In the spring of 1995, the California Society of Certified Public Accountants, Committee on Accounting Education awarded David Ravetch their Faculty Merit Award, which recognizes excellence in teaching.
