Since the beginning of 2016, in UAC School of Global Management we started implementing an innovative strategy for proactive students which are interested in expanding knowledge obtained in conventional ways.
The SDW's (Saturday's Development Workshops) offer an extra learning space to our Associate, Bachelor and Master's - Saturday's students. During their normal study schedule, all the groups have a period of approx. an hour. This space, previously taken for their break, is now a scenario of continued education through workshops and seminars that can be taken optionally.
Through topics like 'Introduction to Neuro-coaching', given by the International Neurocoaching Association & European Leadership Center; 'Vision 2016. Think outside the Box' by Synergy del Caribe SAS; 'Effective time management for Leaders' by Rogerio Mesquita (Brazil); 'Financial Literacy' by Eduardo Torres & Jim Maalouf- Forester Financial, and others, almost 90% of our enrolled students have access to enjoyable and practical tips for daily life, for strengthening their leadership skills, and as an opportunity to share personal and professional growth experiences.
In groups of about 50 persons in total, the SDW's have as well the participation of alumni and general public who have new small and/or independent business ideas, or just want to take part of constant education environments and preserve or increase their entrepreneurial spirits at all times.

Strategic Leadership: Learning to become a Leader
By Irinya Villalba
From Re-design your life.
On December 5, 2015, UAC School of Global Management welcomed Mr. Oscar Machado, Regional Vice President of Primerica, to conduct a workshop entitled "Finance Day".
The faculty and students benefited greatly from Mr. Machado's workshop because he presented topics that are very important to everyone concerning money management. Specifically, topics included practical steps on how to "Learn the best ways to take control", "Pay yourself first", "Use time and consistency", and "Financial coaching".
Mr. Machado emphasized the importance of taking time to find out the best investment strategies to put in place to save money and manage personal accounts. He stressed the importance of long-range financial planning and how best to utilize time and consistency in that effort.
The audience was very engaged and interactive, and the workshop generated a myriad of questions from the audience. At the end of the presentation, Mr. Machado invited everyone to schedule one-on-one consultations for further assistance. Based on the high level of enthusiasm for the workshop, UAC will certainly be inviting Mr. Machado to conduct several more workshops in 2016.
