Professional Development and Jogo de Empresa Course page
This page is for anyone (especially my students of Jogo de Empresa/Business Strategy Game) that wants to improve their chance in the “real” business world. This course and its corresponding videos and presentations are set up in order to help you prepare for what is out there.
This is not about the books you read in school, but about how it will be when you step out there in the working world when Mommy and Daddy cannot hold your hand anymore. We focus on everything from dealing with your boss and coworkers, to how to dress professionally, to how to make a budget (for when you finally move out of your parents’ house when you are 35. The video playlist is on our www.youtube.com/besteconomicsfaculty site under Jogo de Empresa.
