Thomas Pray believes in “giving back to the community that’s been good to me,” and also assisting in the outreach programs at Rochester Institute of Technology where he taught decision sciences in the E. Philip Saunders College of Business.
The professor emeritus will be conducting a three-day Business Simulation Course for the Greater Rochester Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners from April 8-10. Assisting him in the sessions will be Victor Perotti, associate professor of management information systems at RIT’s Saunders College.
The Business Simulation Course blends lectures, skill building activities and an ongoing computerized business simulator to strengthen owners and managers abilities to make better business decisions.
“I’ve run this seminar about 200 times in the industry and it’s been very well accepted,” Pray explains. “The seminar draws upon the time-honored techniques of ‘learning by doing.’”
The cost is $100 for association members; $280 for non-members and includes a one-year membership with the National Association of Women Business Owners. Participants can register at www.nawborochester.org/
