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.
