Class Delivery: AMA's Live Online Seminars are live, interactive, instructor-led courses that are completely user-friendly and accessible from your office or home PC. They’re the perfect time-saving alternative when you want training but can’t get away from the office.

You'll be able to speak to and/or electronically communicate with the instructor's and other attendees. You can also share files, view the instructors desktop, ask questions, tell the instructor to speak louder, softer, slow down, etc. (through simple icons). You'll see what your instructor is writing, view and hear questions and comments from other attendees, and be able to work in subgroups.  A headset is required for optimal communication throughout the Live Online Seminar.

A member of AMA's expert faculty of business professionals will lead your seminar. Beyond our course leaders’ experience in business training, they are specially trained to present AMA's high-quality content in an engaging, live online format.

We want you to feel completely comfortable and ready to go, so we’ll email you before your scheduled seminar and give you all the information you need about the simple set-up process.     

What you'll learn in this business management course:

How you do business is changing fast. Competition is more fierce than ever. How well you can grasp and handle data, reduce risks, and manage people, processes, and new technology is being tested daily. Prepare yourself to innovate, strategize, and lead with success.

In this one-of-a-kind program, you’ll explore these vital skills and behaviors, guided by leading business experts, and practice applying them in an intensive business simulation. Each new skill you explore will inform and support every other skill. Working alongside peers from a variety of industries, you’ll also develop the leadership skills you need to apply these behaviors on the job. This hands-on, 5-day immersive course, filled with case studies, exercises, and activities, offers you the unique opportunity to experience what every business must do—cut costs, increase revenue, and mitigate risks—with a holistic, game-changing approach that can have a lasting positive impact not only on your career but your entire future.
