Managers and knowledge workers face the challenges of rapid change, evolving technology and burgeoning information in today's global economy. Today, business is not as usual. Business is fiercely competitive and global competition is a reality. Downsizing, rightsizing, mergers, relocation, layoffs, and the slow extinction of middle-management has led to the need for individuals who can provide aggressive and innovative solutions to their company's challenges.

This program enables individuals to understand the integration of an enterprise's processes, and how to utilize modern tools, techniques and technologies to make their organization more competitive and profitable. The goal of this program is to increase the student's value to their organization. This is accomplished by introducing the strategic fundamentals of the customer/value driven enterprise, the management concepts of organizational design and structure, and the basic business processes for running an enterprise, including quality, finance and accounting, and information systems.
