Top Summer Courses in Business

Many people decide to further their education on a given topic by enrolling in a summer course, or a short-term academic program intended to enhance skills in a particular subject area.

Just what is a Summer Course in Business? Designed primarily for undergraduates looking to broaden their skillsets in regards to business, these programs vary considerably in terms of content and duration. With that in mind, however, prospective students should anticipate building upon their knowledge of topics like general business practices, business ethics, business administration and accounting principles and practices. Additional attention may be given to human resources considerations, global business practices, management principles and employee-hiring practices, among other areas.

Many students find that taking a summer course helps prepare them for academic success during the regular school year. Many also report that they felt more prepared to continue their business studies after completing the summer course than they did prior.

Students interested in taking a Summer Course in Business will find broad variation among tuition costs for these programs. Because enrollment costs fluctuate due to considerations like where the school offering a program is located and how popular the program proves to be, students should contact each school of interest directly for business course tuition information.

Students who effectively complete summer business programs often do so in an effort to improve their skills before returning to the classroom fulltime. Some participants, however, choose to immediately enter the workforce and use the skills developed in the managerial course in a variety of business-related capacities. Common positions held by course participants include those of retail managers, restaurant managers, accounting assistants, administrative assistants or executive assistants, among others.

Many business summer programs are offered online by schools around the world and are listed in our comprehensive database. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Innovation. Problem-solving. Creativity. Co-Creation. Customer value. These concepts have a tremendous impact in today’s business strategy. They are the ingredients that spur new growth opportunities, optimize business processes and create strong connections with customers. They are obvious, yet diffuse. We see these words everywhere we look today.

But what do they really define? Are they real? Do they have any real impact on business or are they just a series of trendy words slapped on company slogans, advertisements, and annual reports?

Design Thinking is a human-centric group of work processes and frameworks that help identify, develop and deliver on these concepts creatively and efficiently. Real innovation delivers real results. Results in introducing new product-service experiences to create value in a business, in understanding the changing customer expectations or in expanding existing markets. In essence, developing meaningful design solutions through a design thinking approach, co-created with all stakeholders, results in business transformation. This course is designed for the professional who is looking to better define, shape and implement innovative strategies in their respective ecosystems and deliver higher value to their businesses....

Overview

Why Rome?

The city is virtually an outdoor museum and history lesson with streets filled with ancient buildings, statues, and monuments: the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and the Vatican. Rome is home to both multi-national organizations and many smaller, family-owned companies.

Rome, with 2,500 years of history, is the apex of archaeology, art, and museums in Italy. Walk to work or take the Metropolitana (subway), bus, or tram. Lunch is a culinary indulgence of fresh pasta, seafood, and, of course, pizza.

An IES Internship develops your professional skills, your ability to communicate across cultures, and provides substantive work experience to jump-start your career in today’s competitive job market. The optional language class increases your Italian language proficiency and fluency. While Italian is not required, some fields may require a basic understanding of the local language.... [-]
