New! Introduction to Business - Course 5500
Description of Introduction to Business, Course 5500
Regardless of your previous education, if you know little or nothing about business, this is the course for you. First you will learn the objectives of all types of businesses. In our online introduction business course, you will learn what every successful business person should know. How businesses are organized, and the different structures of business enterprise will be explained. The different legal kinds of business organizations that every business needs to select will be given. Then, the usual departments that companies have will be given along with their functions and responsibilities. Finally, important information is discussed on what is required to start a new business, what you should know about investing, and why many businesses fail.
The self-running online purchasing agent courses are attended via the Internet. They require up to two or three continuous hours of attendance. Students are initially contacted by email with instructions on how to take the course for which they have registered. Students may attend the introduction business course online at any time during the day. This makes these professional business training seminars more convenient for students. All materials are included in the price of the course and will be available online while attending classes. These purchasing agent courses are nonrefundable. Instructions for these courses are usually sent within a few days of registration. Normally, the Society likes to see this type of training for procurement professionals completed within a month of having sent out the instructions. If too much time elapses without a procurement training seminar being completed the student may have to register for it again.
It is each student's responsibility to contact the Society if instructions are not received within the time frames listed above. Failure to do so may result in additional fees. Students can contact the Society at 630-859-0250 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
