TAMPA, Fla., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To succeed in a specialized discipline such as management requires highly targeted management skills. To help professionals acquire them quickly and affordably, the Stayer Center for Executive Education at the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business now offers eight management mini-courses 100 percent online. Each builds competencies in a specific area of management expertise:
Emerging Managers and Coaches
Legal Issues in the Workplace
Managing for Results

Essentials of Communication, Empowerment and Delegation
