Business education available to select superintendents

By and |  April 29, 2013

Syngenta invites golf course superintendents across the country to apply to attend this year’s Syngenta Business Institute.

This is the fifth year the company has offered this professional business development program, which is specifically designed for golf course superintendents, in conjunction with Wake Forest University Schools of Business.

Superintendents have until Aug. 20 to fill out an application, which includes an essay on why they believe they should be selected to attend. Syngenta will then select 25 individuals to participate based on their essays and commitment to the industry.

The four-day program will supplement and complement superintendents’ existing knowledge base, allowing more productive and efficient golf course management, the company says. The curriculum provides hands-on knowledge for superintendents to enhance their business acumen, and provides a set of leadership skills for their professional development. Professors from Wake Forest’s master’s of business administration program lend their expertise during classes.

Workshop sessions focus on financial and human resource management, delegation skills, effective communications and negotiation skills, managing generational differences and more.

The Syngenta Business Institute will be held Dec. 6-9 on the campus of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.
