Small Business Leadership Academy Five-Part Series

The W.P. Carey School of Business and the Salt River Project (SRP) have joined forces to provide an intensive executive program for small business leaders in Arizona — the Small Business Leadership Academy.

This program is designed to strengthen these leaders’ acuity and is now in its fourth year.

The Small Business Leadership Academy consists of mandatory orientation followed by 10 weeks of classes, taught by W.P. Carey faculty, who have the expertise to help participants “connect theory and research to practical business problems” in order to help strengthen and grow their businesses.

The participants of the program had a minimum business tenure of three years, had annual revenues between $1 million and $10 million, had fewer than 100 employees, and were able and willing to attend all scheduled classes and related activities.

Arizona Business Magazine is showcasing a series of past participants in the Small Business Leadership Academy in a five-part series, posted every Thursday.
