BA A401 Alaska Native Corporation Business Management CRN 73401. This is a great class for new employees at both Alaska Native organizations and private sector companies doing business in Alaska alike as we cover a range of topics including: Tribes in Alaska their history and purpose, the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act – the journey to ANCSA and today’s ANCSA issues, the reservation model compared to the ANCSA model, Alaska Native Corporation (ANC) corporate governance, The Board of Directors, 7(i) sharing, 8(a) government contracting, opening enrollment, village and regional corporations, Alaska Native non-profits and so much more.

Additionally, in this class we highlight some phenomenal speakers who join us throughout the semester and provide current, relevant overviews of these topics. We have had wonderful participation from leaders of these dynamic entities, both for-profit and non-profit Alaska Native organizations.

Again, a wonderful learning opportunity for new employees. This is also a great overview for those just wanting to learn some of the history of these important topics.
