This course has been designed to learn more about the issues and topics that have had or continue to have a profound impact on the industry today and continue to have an impact tomorrow. With this broader vision of the industry, students will have the opportunity to grow beyond the "silos" of their discipline/industry sector and will begin to consider the industry in its larger context and its role as a whole.
While working in the industry it will always be necessary to focus daily on the specific priorities of the your discipline or association but this course will help students develop and maintain the "view from 40,000 feet".
