Customized Education

The Lam Family College of Business has the ability to help business partners develop custom executive education programs for their employees. As employees begin to seek new opportunities for advancement, the Lam Family College of Business can set up a leadership program for those students. Or, if employees are planning to make a lateral move to a different function like finance or accounting, the Lam Family College of Business can work with those employees to tailor a program that fits their needs. In a practical business environment, business partners need to help their employees gain practical business experience to help them thrive in a competitive business environment. A custom education program can be designed by the Lam Family College of Business to introduce new skills to business partners’ workforce.
