New business program helps bolster management skills

The College of Business and Economic has announced a new non-credit program designed for those who need to strengthen their management skills, bring their skills up-to-date or learn the latest developments in management trends.

The newest of the college's open-enrollment executive education programs, the 10-week Management Development Program will be offered on Wednesday evenings, beginning.

Participants will explore core areas of business, including economics, accounting, finance, operations, marketing and management, in addition to international business cultures, negotiation skills and corporate strategy.

The program is particularly valuable for individuals who work in management, or who have business decision-making responsibility. While providing a foundation of knowledge in the concepts of business, the program will give participants a valuable set of "management tools" that can be used in the workplace immediately.

The College of Business and Economics is experiencing ever-increasing demand for rigorous, high-quality programs for business professionals. College faculty have extensive experience providing state-of-the-art education on a wide range of business concepts and practices. The Management Development Program is just one of several programs that the college currently offers to meet business educational needs.

Classes, taught by full-time faculty, will be held March 11 from 6 -9 p.m. from Wednesday, March 11-May 20, (no class on April 8) in newly opened Gore Hall.
