Minority-owned firms face unique challenges. In order to survive in today’s increasingly global marketplace, CEOs must lead their firms with innovative, clear strategies. In the absence of specialized executive training, few of these firms will be positioned for continual success in the marketplace. The Minority Executive Education Institute (MEEI) delivers comprehensive and robust graduate-level business education designed to help minority business executives strengthen and grow their companies. MEEI business education builds the capacity and extends the capabilities of minority firms through the following program features:
- Extensive course content based on proven best practices and research
- Leading business experts from university and corporate partners
- Access to new business resources through networking and strategic partnerships
MEEI programming utilizes the talents of graduate-level professors from universities across the state and leading business experts, creating a powerful learning experience that gives minority and women business owners concrete knowledge that can be used to grow revenue, enter into new markets, or launch new product ideas.
In the ever-changing business landscape, minority-owned firms must begin to aggressively develop a mindset for growth. MEEI will help to position firms for explosive growth in the marketplace.
The Institute’s 2018 Executive Business Education Program will focus on building small businesses to be more competitively engaged with corporations as business partners. The program will strengthen businesses core competencies, improve strategic agility, and build partnership impact with corporations.
Throughout the series we will focus on:
- Access to Capital
- Access to Marketing
- Access to Business Resources
Our goal is to offer meaningful business solutions to the participants and focus on ways to create value and enhance capacity while managing risk. Additionally, our Executive Business Education Program will support future supplier development and accelerate the development of business strategic capabilities and leadership behaviors.
