Board rooms and offices, college can prepare one to do business in these environments, but as many people in the workforce can tell you, business doesn’t always happen behind a desk. “We seem to have found something that’s missing in business education, and it’s the inclusion of different venues where business has been conducted traditionally,” said Jan Brintnall, LPGA certified teaching pro and MSU alumni. “Five uninterrupted hours on the course to build rapport and relationships can’t happen in a traditional business setting.”
And students who enroll in “Using Golf in Business” learn all about doing business on course; in a practice business outing they are taken to a golf course to be evaluated on their behavior, engagement and networking abilities. And, of course, they learn all about golf, golf courses and their history, too.
