    My program prepared me for entry-level employment in culturally diverse workplaces. This highly interactive, face-to-face course provides an understanding of the interpersonal communication skills required to develop constructive relationships in a multicultural workplace. Leadership, small group communication, and professional and ethical issues in the multicultural workplace were investigated in my course. The subjects in my program were business correspondence, interpersonal skills, and workplace preparation.

    The best learning experiences I had, came from the smaller classes anchored by the hands-on learning. The program provides us with practical skills and strategies as well as specialized knowledge required to be effective leaders and managers.-Some subjects included in the curriculum are Accountancy, social media marketing, cross-cultural-communication, and many other subjects which gave me the knowledge, skills, and attitude.
