CARMA is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2020 CARMA Winter Short Courses Program, to be held for the third consecutive year at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina.  This upcoming program, on January 9-11, will offer participants their choice of nine courses, each lasting two and a half days, with an emphasis on hands-on experience and on the application of the topic with an equal amount of lecture and lab-time.
