Business Extra with Mentors
Frequency: 3 x 45-minute classes per week
Description: This class is the chance for mentors and our business students to interact on topics that our mentors are experts in. You’ll learn from their successes and failures, their stories and experiences in a unique setting.
Frequency: Unique to each student
Description: Each set of online classes is determined by the requirements you discover in this staged learning program.
Stage 1: Before the Semester Starts
There are 3 assignments before the start of the semester to help you set up your learning experience whilst you are on campus.
- The first assignment will be to identify 5 jobs you want to have, make them your dream jobs, and contact the HR manager or employer to inquire on the necessary skills and knowledge you will need for that job.
- In the second assignment you identify 10 most important skills from Assignment 1, and find 3 online paid, 3 online free classes and 3 books for one skill.
- The 3rd step will be creating your Custom Certification Plan. Out of those 10 skills, you will combine those that match, and select only 5 top skills that you will need for getting those jobs you want to apply for. For each skill, you will find the best 2 courses (paid or online), one book to read, and one mentor who can support you in this journey.
Stage 2: On campus
Whilst on campus, students on this study track attend the online courses they signed up for in Stage 1. They also attend their on-campus courses
We estimate that this will take anywhere between 12-15 hours study time per week depending on the classes you choose.
