Diploma in Management of SMEs

Course Overview

SMEs might think that sustainability is only relevant to large companies—that for a small business, the administrative and financial costs outweigh the benefits. However the aim of an average entrepreneur (SMEs, owners in particular) extends beyond profit-making. Business growth and expansion constitute key objectives of SMEs.
