Delgado Community College and Cox Communications have partnered to provide business development training to their diverse suppliers located in the Greater New Orleans and Greater Atlanta areas via Delgado’s distance learning platform.

This is the second year that Cox Communications has funded the eight-week Small Business Growth Academy; and it is Delgado’s second year offering online business education through its Workforce Development division.

Due to COVID-19, the second annual Small Business Growth Academy will be delivered completely online.

Enrollment is limited to 30 participants, and the deadline to enroll is Thursday, July 16, 2020. The online program starts on Saturday, July 18, 2020.

Any certified minority-owned businesses may apply, but minority-owned businesses that are currently Cox suppliers will have preference for enrollment. Participants who complete the program will earn continuing education units.

Program participants will learn core skills related to business management and sustainability topics including accounting, organizational performance, and project management. Participants will also receive guidance on developing growth strategies specific to their businesses. Delgado faculty will lead program modules.
