FAQs

Who would benefit from this program?

Anyone who needs a solid business skills foundation to make them more successful. We are a nation of "specialists." While that has its benefits, most working people, whether they are medical, legal or technical specialists, entrepreneurs, or tradespeople, will interact with business professionals on a daily basis. Being able to “speak their language," and successfully grow their organization, or move up within the ranks of their field, requires an understanding of key concepts, skills and terminology used in business.

What will be taught in the program?

The program covers everything you would expect from a world-class business school (e.g. marketing, finance, strategy, leadership, etc), taught by top-rated educators and business executives. The curriculum has been designed specifically for working professionals, focusing on the skills you can put to work for you today. Practical. Useful. Understandable.

How much does the program cost?
