We have developed a curriculum focused on leadership and business that combines lectures, class assignments and “hands on” activities allowing students to apply learning objectives designed to guide them toward lifelong success. The LOT program also includes such benefits as business education from and direct exposure to some of Central Florida’s leading professionals, entrepreneurs and educators.
