Business Essentials: An Immersive Experience
This immersive program is designed to enhance participants’ understanding and ability to apply business concepts and skills. Its aim is to help you develop a broader perspective on how a business or organization works by integrating the major business areas, including management, marketing, finance, operations, supply chain management, and analytics. This experience will help you “look up from your desk” and gain a better appreciation for how the total enterprise functions, and 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, an engaging capstone simulation, the creation of a professional development plan, and a virtual 90-day follow-up and check-in.
