DAY-ONE READY FOR THE REAL WORLD
In each eight-week module students rapidly achieve milestones in developing smart skills (e.g. teaming, communication, leadership), sharp skills (e.g. finance, strategy, or analytics) and career skills.
Key milestones grow in complexity as students move from building business foundations in Mod 1, incorporating customer-centricity in Mod 2, accelerating organic growth in Mod 3 and driving innovation in Mod 4.
At kickoff and between modules students intensify their job search through career hackathons and ethical decision making via simulations and live cases.Weekly technology and communication labs unlock rapidly evolving generative AI, business automation, analytical and content development technologies.
