Most people associate the term “business” with the private sector. However, business skills and models are widely applied in every sector: public, private and non-profit (which includes academia). You are acquiring many transferable skills in your Ph.D. program that can be applied in academic roles as well as within a variety of industries and job functions. Join the business skills learning cohort to better understand foundational concepts and language of business. This learning cohort includes experiential learning in the form of group capstone presentations under guidance of alum mentors. 


Broad Topics include:

  1. Purpose, ethics, and responsibility: stakeholder theory

  2. Analysis of strategy and operations 

  3. Data science in business

  4. Leadership and mentoring

  5. Negotiation

  6. Financial 360

  7. Business Communications

At this launch event, meet and mingle with your cohort and the GradFUTURES team over a reception and discuss your aspirations and motivations for cohort participation. We will also outline the syllabus, learning goals, speakers, navigating course and learning materials on Canvas, format of capstone, and expectations for completion.
