Career Acceleration Focus

In today's competitive and changing world, individuals in management positions need to understand the business aspects and be able to formulate key policies and make sound management decisions in conjunction with providers of services and organizations. In addition, developing personal networks is essential to progressing in management positions. We offer networking opportunities throughout the year for our students to meet successful leaders.
