Modern businesses must have contingency plans to fall back on in the event of an unexpected incident or emergency. What’s more, all such contingency plans must be continually revisited, revised and tested in order to ensure their viability – unverified plans may offer little to no practical value when ultimately put into action.

I used the skills I picked up studying with BOLC to start my own online business. So now I’m my own boss and work by my own rules. Isn’t that a dream we all share? It was certainly mine – and now I’m living it!
The flexibility of the Management Diploma I studied really blew me away. I’d always though the only way of getting qualified these days was to quick work and head back to college. BOLC proved me wrong – thanks for that guys!
