"Businesses today expect their technology executives to lead them into the future, and that means they need to be well-versed in business strategy and all the disciplines that drive an organization," said Hugh Courtney, Dean of Northeastern University's D'Amore-McKim School of Business. "Both of these new programs achieve that goal, from fundamentals through the more advanced Beyond the MBA course."
Both programs will be delivered on the Northeastern University's campus on Huntington Avenue in Boston. Though these courses don't offer continuing education credits, participants receive a certificate of completion at a closing ceremony.
