How MBA Today is different

  • Real-world not theory

    No wasting time with what-ifs. Lessons from the street-wise entrepreneurs who have graduated from the School of Hard Knocks.

  • Fast-Paced

    Fifteen-minute TED-style topics plus an implementation session immediately after to cement your learning and leave you with tangible action steps.

  • Unconventional

    Anyone can read the “standard answer” to a business situation. But generic answers provide unoriginal solutions. Our courses offer contrarian thinking & sometimes counter-intuitive ideas.

  • Action not ideas

    You are far to busy for another unimplemented idea. Every course has an action planning session afterwards to put the ideas to work in your business.
