The “Mastering Dealership Operations” course is designed to be a capstone experience for learners who have completed the pre-requisite courses in the Cox University Educational Path. This mastery-level course builds on basic theory and fact-based analysis learned in the core courses, while providing a high-level recap and application of the skills learned to complete the learning cycle. Through interactive, hands-on experiences, learners will analyze dealership profitability and develop sales goals based on “real-life” dealership scenarios. A key component of this experiential learning process is the evaluation and contrast of models and best practices used to plan and develop operational strategies, including staffing models, career and educational paths, and pay plans that support dealership success. After completing this course, learners will be better prepared for sales leadership roles, enabling them to add more value to their sales teams and the dealer’s sales operations.
