SCORE presents in-depth masterclasses covering a wide range of business management subjects

SCORE Dallas recently completed the LegacyTexas Bank 2019 Business Masterclass Series for LegacyTexas Bank.  This group comprised 18 selected small businesses with revenues of $1 million or less. Business owners were selected from many applicants, as competition is fierce for this very popular management course.

Participants learned from top business and financial professionals worked one-on-one with experienced leaders and developed effective plans and strategies for success.

The SCORE Business Masterclass series exposes attendees to a wide range of business subjects over a period of ten sessions held over two months. Each works with a SCORE mentor over the period to develop their business and marketing plans.
