Real-World Goals
Real-World Goals

Certificates and degrees are abstractions that don't reflect reality and give false entitlement. Our students don't get certificates, they aim for, optimize and achieve the real-world goal.

Real-world Feedback
Real-World Feedback

Learning requires feedback so students can measure progress and iterate actions to improve. Our students get feedback from the market, not quizzes, tests or assignments.

Mental Reprogramming
Mental Reprogramming

The #1 killer of education is psychological, not logical. For managers to learn and evolve, we must reprogram their minds to enhance awareness, cognition, and remove delusions.
