PIPE Program Returns with Scholarships for Minority Businesses


Minority Businesses are invited to the 2nd cohort of the PIPE (Progress, Insight & Performance Education) program

The PIPE Program (Progress, Insight & Performance Education), a collaboration between Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council and the University of Phoenix, is an advanced business management program that saves you time and improves company performance.

The Fall 2019 cohort will meet on Tuesdays (September 24 – November 12) from 3pm-7pm.

To participate, an individual must be employed by a company certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) through NMSDC, City of Chicago or Cook County, or certified through the State of Illinois BEP program. The program is open to all employees, but recommended for officers or key employees who would benefit from sharpening their business skills. The courses are designed for individuals who already have basic business knowledge and experience.

The program fees ($2,500) per individual have been waived for this Fall 2019 cohort; the cost is being sponsored through the Bank of America Diverse Business Scholarship Program administered by Scholarship America®.
