"YOU CANNOT DREAM YOURSELF INTO A CHARACTER; YOU MUST HAMMER AND FORGE YOURSELF ONE."
- HENRY DAVID THOREAU
Street Smart in Business
Our ultimate objectiveis that our students become socially and corporately shrewd, aware and strategic. That they have the skill to navigate the harsh maze that is life and attain their specific dreams. This is done through teaching professionals what they should really know now to be successful, instead of going through years of hard knocks.
Insights that are only divulged if you are lucky enough to have a seasoned business mentor. Managing projects, pitching to executives for funding, and working with teams in real life situations is not accurately covered in business school or taught to you by your boss. You are expected to sink or swim.
Achieving your life or career objectives really happens through 1-on-1 discussions in corridors, winning over executives by aligning to their real agendas, and understanding what your bosses, companies, venture capitalists etc. 1-3 year financial objectives are.
