Students develop a holistic understanding of how a business works as an integrated system while providing a basis for strategic thought.
WHAT IS FOUNDATION
Foundation gives students the chance to develop a holistic understanding of basic business principles from the very beginning in an engaging learning experience. Each business discipline has its broad body of knowledge and can be mastered in theory, but experiencing how business works in practice can be the ideal foundation for deep and ongoing learning.
INTEGRATE THEORY AND PRACTICE
To grasp how the individual parts of a business impact the entire organization, nothing beats the experience of running a business in a competitive marketplace. Foundation provides that experience—without the real-world risk—along with the opportunity to build a product portfolio, manage costs, analyze the market, and develop forecasts, all with an eye on cash flow and balance sheet management.
ENGAGE YOUR STUDENTS
An intuitive user-friendly interface simplifies students' online experience and provides immediate feedback with answers when they need them, right on the screen. Immersed in the realistic complexities of a $40 million corporation, each management team or individual CEO takes over a struggling company. Each company must balance competing needs and demands to keep their business on a clear strategic path.
