A premium business development program for superintendents.

Golf course superintendents have increasing requirements to not only deliver outstanding turf conditions, but to also possess excellent business and managerial skills. For this reason, Syngenta partners with the Wake Forest University School of Business to offer an innovative business development program tailored to superintendents, the Syngenta Business Institute™ (SBI). This unique three-day program provides a business management curriculum that includes financial management, delegation skills, effective communications, negotiation tactics and more.

Syngenta Business Institute 2017 runs December 4 – 7, 2017.

2017 Application will be available March, 2017. Applications for 2017 are due by August 15, 2017. Accepted applicants will be notified in early October.


Check out reviews from past Syngenta Business Institute participants:

"Everything about the Syngenta Business Institute is great – the people, the instructors and the networking opportunities. I left with tools that I can use to help me both professionally and personally. I can’t say enough about this program and would encourage any superintendent in the business to apply for SBI and experience this awesome opportunity."

"I have attended many conferences and educational sessions in my career but the Syngenta Business Institute is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences I have ever been part of. Golf course superintendents are truly responsible for running a 'business'. Having the opportunity to attend three days of business classes focused on the many challenges we face as superintendents was unbelievable. Spending time with other superintendents was beneficial and walking away with best management practices, tools and solutions to help some of these problems was awesome."

John Cunningham, CGCS, Bellerive Country Club,
St. Louis, Missouri

"The Syngenta Business Institute is arguably the best continuing education program I have attended. It was a learning experience that will allow me to grow as a leader for my maintenance team and club. The educators and hosts were first-class and the opportunity to network with fellow superintendents is always an added bonus. Thank you again to the entire Wake Forest and Syngenta team for this opportunity."

Eric Feldhusen, MountainGate Country Club,
Los Angeles, California

"The Syngenta Business Institute experience and getting to network with some of the top superintendents in the country was great. Nowadays the business side of our business is just as important as the agronomic side. A lot of the tools we gained will help us make our courses more successful, manage our resources better and in the long run, sustain our courses for years to come."
