The State College at Old Westbury wants you to know that next week, for a day, it will be a Mickey Mouse school -- in a good way.

The school announced Wednesday that the Disney Institute will bring its professional development program to the Old Westbury campus.

The program, Disney’s Approach to Business Excellence,  will look at the topics of creativity, leadership, management, service and loyalty.

It takes place next Thursday and is sponsored by the college’s Auxiliary Services Corp.

The full-day session "will allow area professionals to learn how to drive business results, retain employees and satisfy customers through proven and adaptable Disney business philosophies," Old Westbury says.

The program registration fee is $349 and includes all course materials. For more information or to register, call 516-876-3979.
