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, leadership skills, effective communications, negotiation tactics and more.

Syngenta Business Institute 2019 runs December 3 - 6, 2019.

Check out reviews from past Syngenta Business Institute participants:

"I thought the Syngenta Business Institute was phenomenal. The sessions about leading across cultures and generations and motivating employees really helped me better understand the people on my crew and what motivates them. I would highly recommended attending SBI - at the end of the day it will make you a better professional."

Justin VanLanduit, SBI class of 2018

"The Syngenta Business Institute was more than just networking. It was really educational. The sessions were very interactive and got us out of our comfort zone. I would recommend applying. It’s an event where you can get as much as you want out of it."

Kyle DeNuys, SBI class of 2018

"People told me about the Syngenta Business Institute before, but it was even better than I expected. Usually these events are focused on managing turf, but this gave us tools to become better leaders. The session on leading across different cultures really opened my eyes as to how my crew works and ways I can be a better manager for them. It’s worth every effort to apply and is a great investment of your time."

KD Davis, SBI class of 2018

"The Syngenta Business Institute allows you to network with other superintendents. And it’s by far the best educational event I’ve ever been to."

Drew Paxton, SBI class of 2018
