syngenta_logoSyngenta will start accepting applications on March 1 for its eighth annual Syngenta Business Institute (SBI), to be held Dec. 5-8, 2016 in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Completed SBI applications are due Tuesday, Aug. 16. Participants will be notified of their acceptance into the 2016 Syngenta Business Institute in October.

Selected participants will learn business management practices presented by Wake Forest University faculty, such as financial management, managing generational and cultural differences, delegation skills, effective communication, and negotiation tactics. To be considered, candidates must complete the application, which includes an essay on why they should be selected, relevant professional experience and educational background.

“The Syngenta Business Institute is arguably the best continuing education program I have attended,” says Eric Feldhusen, superintendent at MountainGate Country Club in Los Angeles and 2015 SBI attendee. “It was a learning experience that will allow me to grow as a leader for my maintenance team and club.”

Past SBI superintendent attendees have recognized this program for its effectiveness and impact on their careers.

“Everything about the Syngenta Business Institute is great – the people, the instructors and the networking opportunities,” says Sean Reehoorn, superintendent at Aldarra Golf Club in Sammamish, Wash. “I left with tools I can use to help me both professionally and personally. I can’t say enough about this program and would encourage any superintendent in the business to apply.”

Syngenta receives nearly 100 applications annually, and approximately 25 superintendents are chosen to attend the program.
