The result will be a greater ability to handle workplace challenges and a greater ability to thrive.

This is a short and intensive course, lasting 8 weeks, that will cover as much as is covered in a regular semester. Given the short time we have to work in it, you will find that Summer is busier than a regular 16-week semester.
