Professional Writing: Business and Entrepreneurship
Spring 2021 - Darien's ENGCOMP 130B for Business Communication was one of my top favorite classes that I took at UCLA, in regards to both the qualities of Darien himself and topic of the class. Darien was a great teacher in the sense that his communication was clear, personality humorous and energetic and care for student learning made the class worth taking. The class consisted of several aspects. There were not in-class tests or finals as assignments that were worth more in points ranged from per-recorded presentations, group projects, and business-style reports. Participation was tallied through weekly discussion posts on CCLE. During class, we would often either review material or topics related to the assigned readings, get started on some of the larger projects or listen to various guest speakers who were relevant and active in their field. As one of the last classes I took at UCLA, I highly recommend you take this class too before you eventually graduate. Darien is a great professor and teaches relevant material.
