A Focus on Renewable Energy
Where does the power to run your company come from? From the warehouse to the boardroom, on the roads and in the office, companies need to find the fuel to keep their business running while remaining profitable. Reducing and finding energy alternatives can make a big impact on the bottom line. The renewable energy concentration examines the environmental regulations and policies that impact business decisions, management, and the bottom line. Find out how environmental laws affect business, and how fuel alternatives and renewable energy sources can positively impact your business and marketing efforts, while providing a new perspective on energy consumption. Build a strategy for operational management as you learn to research and implement a plan that accounts for energy usage, supply chain management, production, inventory and Six Sigma.
