This course complements additional leadership and managerial classes and narrows the area of focus to a specific career function.

By making use of case studies, they are able to learn from the successes and failures of other professionals and apply these lessons to their own careers. By the end of the program, they will be able to overcome challenges in production, reduce inefficiencies and make proposals for process improvements to top level managers.

The cost of these classes varies by institution. Those interested should contact their admissions department for more information regarding fees and tuition.
