Know the Business Accelerating Your Business Acumen

The speed of business is accelerating. As technology continues to break down geographic and cultural barriers, organizations become more interconnected, more dynamic, more collaborative, and increasingly vulnerable to tomorrow’s best-in-class ideas.

In an age of constant innovation, knowing yesterday’s best practices is no longer enough. Business and financial acumen must become more agile and strategic to meet the pace of tomorrow’s professional growth and development. In a world where information is everywhere, learning must be targeted, personalized and mobile.
