    Enterprise Agility Emphasis Courses

    CCU's enterprise agility courses will prepare you to blend a focused business experience with technical aspects of accounting. You’ll integrate academics with moral principles from Scripture so you can grow as a servant leader, strengthen your ethical framework, and responsibly influence your profession.

    The Enterprise Agility emphasis includes 13 online courses. Some of the foundation courses include:

    • Enterprise Agility Concepts and Project Management. This course takes a deep dive into enterprise agility concepts and application as compared to other project management frameworks. Students will compare models such as Lean, XP, Scrum and Kanban and determine the best approach for an organization within its competitive landscape.
    • Enterprise Agility in Practice. This course introduces students to the practice of enterprise agility in a business environment. Students will increase their knowledge of Agile frameworks and roles through hands-on experimentation and biblical concepts.
    • Enterprise Agility and Corporate Strategy. This course takes the fundamentals of enterprise agility and applies these concepts at the corporate level. Students will learn how to take the agile principles (e.g. rapid system development life cycles) and apply them synergistically to the strategic operations of all the departments in an organization.
    • Leadership and Management I. The leadership and management course helps learners understand the theories and realities of the managerial functions and processes in organizations. The course also explores organizational leadership/”followership” issues with special emphasis on the Biblical principles related to organizational leadership.
    • Management Information Systems. This course is based on the premise that it is difficult, if not impossible, to manage a modern organization without basic knowledge of information systems; i.e., what information systems are, how they affect the organization and its employees, and how they can make businesses more efficient and competitive. Participants develop knowledge, sensitivities, and skills that will enable them to stay current in the fast changing MIS environment.
