BUILDING CULTURAL CAPITAL. A few weeks ago, I mentioned the most important course in the business curriculum.
On occasion Northern Illinois offers a one-day golf etiquette seminar wherein the focus is on the social aspects of a business outing, rather than the finer points of the sand wedge.
I give you Business Golf 101.
Students who take Business Golf 101 at NIU don’t learn how to sink a 15-foot putt, but they do learn the value of “turf conferences” as a way to make connections and close deals.
What intrigues is that there's also a Business Bowling event.

Full disclosure: the Superintendent had to leave Milwaukee after missing the five pin too many times, and his putting prowess comes from the amusement park, not the country club.
