Not everyone learns the same way. All programs are delivered fully online and available 24/7, from anywhere in the world. Our challenge-based approach puts an emphasis on competencies developed and not grades defined by a rubric. The pacing and desired outcome is up to you — goals and results determine your mastery of a topic, not pre-defined criteria which stunts creativity. We believe each learner has their own educational path. We help you design a program based on your current skills, knowledge, and goals. Wherever you want to go, we'll help you get there.
Starts with why: Having a purpose and targeted interest provides intentionality for better learning results.
Competency-based: Is individual and about mastery. It moves from measuring time to measuring learning.
Challenge-based: Actively engages you to solve real-world problems through a solution oriented approach.
Builds meaningful relationships: Community of peers, industry leaders, and mentors giving you a world class network to accelerate personal and professional growth.
Paced and individualized: Four phases of varied lengths provide personalized and calibrated learning at your pace. Go as fast or as slow as your schedule allows.
Learn the competencies for a better tomorrow. Right for you. Right here. Right now.
Unlike traditional master programs, which focus solely on studying theory, we built our curriculum around five research-based pillars.
1. Entrepreneurial Spirit
2. Technological Literacy
4. Cognitive Proficiency
5. Social and Emotional Competency
Our challenge-based methodology was inspired by an outdated educational system that impeded student engagement. Giving learners the skills and knowledge to find solutions to economic, social, and environmental problems of the 21st century sparked our interest in new pedagogical approaches.
Challenge-based learning is an innovative pedagogy — it has its roots in experiential learning or “learning through reflection on doing”. When faced with a challenge, successful groups and individuals leverage experience, harness internal and external resources, develop a plan, and move forward to find the best solution. Along the way, there is experimentation, some failure, and much success.
