---- — TRAVERSE CITY — A few slots are still available for a nine-month business education class offered through a partnership between the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce and Ferris State University.

The class is called the “mini MBA program” and is taught by six instructors from Ferris State. The goal is to offer participants advanced business skills, strategy formulation and financial literacy. The course also will include a business simulation competition, including instruction on business ethics, global economics, lean management, human resources and leadership skills. Completion of the course is worth 2.7 continuing education units towards a graduate degree.

The registration deadline is Sept. 6. More information is available by contacting the chamber’s Andi Wagenschutz at (231) 995-7101 or by email at
