Beginning January 30 and ending March 8, University of San Diego’s Office of Corporate and Professional Education is again offering a certificate program specifically designed to provide invaluable strategic planning and management skills to small business owners.

“High Performance Management Training for Small Business Owners” (HPMT) is designed to provide San Diego’s small business owners with the training and management skills that will help them gain a competitive edge, grow and reach the next level of success. The program is sponsored by the University of San Diego, and is partially funded by the State of California Employment Training Panel (ETP). University of San Diego is the only place in San Diego County that offers this invaluable and affordable business program.

“The High Performance Management Training for Small Business Owners program provided us with a wealth of small business tools and analysis, along with real-world contributions from top professionals in marketing, finance, legal and insurance. I would highly recommend this course for all small business owners looking for help in better understanding their business, marketplace and their competition,” said T. Tolman, Managing Partner, Digital I/O, and University of San Diego HPMT program graduate.

HPMT participants will learn about: Executive strategy building; Business plan development; Operations management for peak performance; Fiscal control system formation; Marketing plan development; Strategic partnership development, and many more invaluable tools to better help them compete.
