Excited for our Professional Development Business Course – a new opportunity
In October TALK launched a new Professional Development Business Course. This course had been in the works at TALK for some years. So despite the challenges presented by COVID-19 restrictions we are grateful that we were able to go ahead and launch. We started by introducing the CLEP® Principles of Management online course, which is tailored to offer students a comprehensive introduction to the practice of management through the lens of organizational behavior.
Led by Sandra Falcon, a seasoned Business English teacher, students analyze real Harvard business cases and learn to develop a holistic approach to real life dilemmas. Our virtual classroom enjoys dynamic discussions amongst students, conversations with invited guests and participation of student working professionals from diverse global backgrounds.
After the completion of this course, the students can take the CLEP exam and if they earn a satisfactory score, they can approach their selected college to request credits which often correspond to a one-semester course.
