Summer Internship Units via SBP – great for CPA license requirements

Do you have a summer internship? Do you need to be enrolled in a course for your internship? Do you need units for your CPA license?

Then the internship course through SBP is for you!

You can enroll in either:

Econ x430.98 – Accounting Internship Seminar (2 units)
Econ x430.99 – Business Internship Seminar (2 units)

Each internship requires
:

  • 45 hours of employer contact
  • Enrollment via the extension website (see above) and completed questionnaire prior to internship
  • Participation in one 3 hour seminar after the internship is completed; at which time students must give a 15 minute presentation on either an Accounting (x430.98) or Business (x430.99) topic related to your internship.

You may enroll in both courses but this requires:

  • 90 hours of contact time
  • 2 presentations
  • 2 – 3 hour class meetings

You should only be enrolled in both courses if you have an internship at an accounting firm.

All 4 units can  count towards your CPA license, but only 2 can be used towards the completion of the certificate.

If you have any questions please stop by the Career Connection office, NH 2119 or email Joan (joan@econ.ucsb.edu).

First SBP course of the quarter!

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enroll in  a finance SBP course.

x430.52 – Behavioral Finance

Instructor: Todd Lowenstein

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if a business could figure out consumer preferences and use this information to their advantage? The problem is that sometimes consumers can’t figure out what is best for themselves!

This course uses ideas taken from economics and psychology to help find anomalies within commonly believed ideas, and why they occur. This class seeks to shed light on these issues through lectures and first-hand experience from in-class activities. Topics include:

  • What does it mean to be rational?
  • Why aren’t we are fully rational?
  • Are there consistent ways that we deviate from full rationality?
  • What rules of thumb do people use in certain situations?

Class meetings: Thursdays: January 15, 22 and 29 6:30 – 9:30 pm
