Neeley School Announces New Summer Business Program for Non-Business Majors

  

 

TCU's Neeley School of Business introduces a special four-week summer program for non-business majors, May 15 - June 9, 2006. The program provides a certificate in business for students in their junior or senior year of college and for recent college graduates.

"Today's workforce requires business essentials in every career field," said Deb Baker, program director for the Summer Business Program. "The Neeley School's Summer Business Program is designed to give non-business majors expertise to advance as leaders within their chosen field, as well as a competitive edge in the job market."

Classes are typically 9 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, including field trips to corporations and organizations. Registration and deposit are due by April 10, 2006.

"Students experience creative learning by operating a simulated company," added Laura Meade, academic director for the Summer Business Program. "They learn hands-on business applications such as: writing a business plan, accounting, human resources, marketing, ethics and business law, information management, supply chain strategies and fundamentals of finance and economics."

Noted business leaders, managers and entrepreneurs share meaningful advice with students throughout the program. Summer Business Program students also benefit from valuable training in leadership skills, team building, communication and presentation, resume writing and successful job interviewing.
