Workshop For Executives at New Jersey Institute of Technology Jan. 14: Conducting Business In An Unsafe World

NEWARK, Dec. 18--Today businesses are working hard to assess their position in the global marketplace and determine what can be learned from the recent terrorist attacks. Companies also want to understand better how to move forward.

"The need for corporations to reexamine strategies for managing information, human resources and company growth or retrenchment, has never been more apparent," says Frank Koe, Ph.D. Koe directs the Newark-based executive Masters of Business Administration (MBA) Program at the School of Management (SOM) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).

To meet the needs of these companies, Koe and SOM professors will offer a daylong workshop "Going Virtual: Conducting Business in an Unsafe World" on January 14, 2002, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. in the second floor ballroom of the William Hazel Student Center on the NJIT campus. "The workshop will explore alternate methods of conducting business in the new and riskier environment," explains Koe. "We'll also examine how to create the technical and human infrastructure that supports a shift from the physically enabled work place to one that relies more heavily on electronic communication and information processing." Mid-and senior level managers are encouraged to attend.

Cost for the workshop is $150 per person. For further information, contact NJIT at 973-642-7499 or email
