Course description

This immersive program is designed to enhance your ability to understand and apply business concepts and skills. As you develop a broader perspective on how a business or organization works, you’ll gain fundamental insight into how you, your employees, and the decisions you make as a manager impact the performance and profitability of the enterprise. We accomplish this with integrated topics and an engaging capstone simulation. You will create a professional development plan and follow up on that plan with a virtual 90-day check-in.

Who should attend?

This certificate program is for people who realize that advancing their careers will require a new approach, a new game plan. Business Essentials will help do that by exposing you to the essentials of management, finance, accounting, operations, analytics, and marketing. 

For those with limited formal business education, or those in their early to mid-career, this is a certificate program that will help “get you there.”
