At Oliver Finley, our students receive practical and technical education in their field of specialization, as well as instruction in basic business principles. These business essentials include: building clientele, promoting a business, managing others, and managing finances.
In addition to standard course work, our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of distinctive programs geared toward
improving expertise and confidence. Students will have the opportunity to participate in photo shoots of their work that they can then submit
to beauty industry magazines, as well as include in their portfolio for potential employers and clients. Qualified students can volunteer for
positions on the Special Events Team where they can be involved in the promotions of the Academy through career fairs, shows, and community
