Key Classes for Your Success
Leadership & Professional Ethics
What kind of leader do you want to be? No matter your industry, the role of a leader is largely shaped by the decisions they make. In this course, you’ll examine a variety of approaches to decision-making in business. You’ll learn about different ethical frameworks, and consider how they may be applied in real-world scenarios.
Good businesses maintain strong relationships with their customers, delivering a product that meets clients’ needs and expectations. As you study operations management, you’ll learn about the production process from start to finish, including inventory, quality, and cost control.
Human Resources & Organizations
The most essential aspect of an organization is its people. Organizational leadership and human resources professionals alike must have a strong understanding of how to recruit quality employees, provide support for those employees, and effectively manage a number of HR functions, principles, and programs. In this course, you’ll take a deeper look at the world of human resource management and its impact on business.
