Time to recharge

It happens to everyone at some point—we all get stuck in a rut. 

Here's a tip for getting unstuck: step away from your desk and give yourself a day or two to gain new skills and a fresh perspective. One- and two-day courses from the University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business promise just that. So next time you book a costly plane ticket to an expensive conference, think local. You’ll be equally recharged and have tangible skills to apply at work the next day.

Course topics span project management, finance, and leadership. Learn how to lead your business through major change or upheaval. Discover the secrets to hiring and retaining top employees. Acquire new skills to deliver projects on time and under budget.

Tippie’s short courses are non-credit granting and are open to anyone looking for professional development options—no application required. The courses are non-credit-bearing and therefore not eligible for federal financial aid.

Project Management courses ending August 2017

The Project Management course series through Tippie College of Business will conclude in August 2017. If you have questions, please contact Assistant Dean Dawn Kluber.
