Time to Shine
To succeed in the field of business, it is essential to develop key skills in business interactions and transactions, such as negotiating strategies, interpersonal communication, teamwork, and presentation skills. To reflect this, students will participate in an assignment in which they develop the concept and business plan for a new start-up company. This project will culminate in students giving a sales pitch presentation about their start-up company and product to a panel of judges, who will offer valuable feedback and guidance to the students.
What You’ll Take Away
Through communicative lessons and the practical assignments students will have successfully completed by the end of the course, our Business & Leadership students will leave with a developed set of core business skills, business knowledge and business in practice. Whether students have an interest in business, marketing or finance, or they wish to take their enhanced leadership skills to a different field of management, this course will assist them in preparing for their aspiring profession.
