This is the first edition of the global program.
When does the first global edition start?
What about future editions?
September 17th, 2020. Mark this date on your calendar. Future editions will open on a monthly basis.
How is this price possible?
Maybe you are questioning how our program’s price is much lower than those you can find in
the current education marketplace. Even though we have reunited the world’s top entrepreneurs and business leaders in one single program. There are two main reasons:
● The first is our core purpose: Providing to everyone -willing to learn- everywhere in
the world, the key business knowledge to reach the next level.
● The second is ‘Value Innovation’. Our disruptive business model allows us to deliver an
the best business program at a “no-brainer” price (1000 USD).
Does ThePowerMBA have an official accreditation?
NO. We are not officially accredited by any institution or government agency. And we are proud of it. We strongly believe that accreditation constrains flexibility, leading to outdated learnings, curricular stagnation and inefficient programs.
If ThePowerMBA is not officially accredited, is it well recognized by companies, HR departments, etc?
Yes and the proof is that top companies like Google, EY, Accenture, Santander, Inditex or Heineken have trusted ThePowerMBA to train their teams.
Will I receive a certificate upon completion of ThePowerMBA?
Yes. Once you complete 100% of the lessons and pass all the tests, you’ll receive your Finisher
certificate through blockchain technology. Then you can add it to your LinkedIn profile and
resume. It will strengthen your professional profile.
What are the differences compared to a traditional MBA?
Traditional MBA programs are still valuable. Particularly, MBAs from Top business schools. We do not argue that. However, this model seems to be at stake: major universities shutting down their MBA programs, applications in the U.S. are down each year… Why?
● They require a huge investment of money and time, with uncertain return
● Some professors are academics who lack ‘real world’ experience
● Outdated content and case studies
● Tough application processes: GMAT, letters of recommendation, several interviews, etc.
In ThePowerMBA, we believe that the highest quality business education must become accessible to everyone. That’s why we have created this ultra efficient and updated program, at an affordable price of 1000 USD.
What are the differences compared to an online course?
Among the vast universe of online courses:
● They are usually focused on one single niche (e.g. entrepreneurs)
● Most of them are not well-structured and learnings are usually poor
● Too often professors are ‘gurus’ who want to sell their story
● They lack a value proposition
● There is zero offline engagement and community
ThePowerMBA offers much more than an online learning experience. Once you become a #powermba you don’t only have access to an excellent business program, you join a thriving community of people willing to learn and achieve their professional goals.
How do I apply to ThePowerMBA?
THERE IS NO APPLICATION TO THE POWERMBA PROGRAM
Do I need previous business knowledge?
No. We have thousands of students from almost every background and industry: engineers, lawyers, architects, pharmacists, doctors, marketers, etc.
Do you require a certain professional level? Are there any further requisites to be admitted?
No. ThePowerMBA has been purposely designed both to help junior profiles in early stages of their career, as well as senior professionals with several year of experience in their industry.
The only requisite is your love for learning.
Is the program open to participants from anywhere in the world?
Yes. The global ThePowerMBA is open, either you live in North America, Latam, Europe, Asia, Australia, etc.
Is it possible to learn in 15-minute lessons?
It is not only possible. It’s better.
Microlearning (or bite-sized lessons) offers numerous advantages compared to traditional -often too long- lessons: it is convenient, improves content retention, people love learning in short bursts, supports self-managed learning, is easier to update, requires less time and resources, is better suited to mobile learning, etc.
You can find out more about how ThePowerMBA works here.
Why like a Netflix show?
Our marketing department didn’t make this up. Our students did. Why?
Because learning doesn’t have to be boring. And our methodology is fun, convenient, and efficient.
Will the program follow the curriculum of a standard MBA?
Our program covers all the areas of the MBA curriculum to acquire a 360-degree vision of business: strategy, management, accounting & finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, etc.
See our syllabus for further detail.
What kind of support do you offer students who have doubts and questions on the contents of the program?
We provide 24h support to the students through our live chat. In addition, you can share your questions with your fellow #powermbas and our experts via the platform forums.
In addition to the videos, do you offer any other resources?
Yes. The program is comprised by videos and downloadable resources: templates, guides, course summaries, explanations of key concepts, etc.
How long does it take to finish the program?
Every weekday (from Monday to Friday) we release a new lesson. Assuming you advance at that pace, it will take 10 months:
- Nº. lessons: 220
- Dedication time: Approx. 50 hours
Are there any tests or assessments?
Yes. Upon completion of every course, you will take a test. The goal of these tests is not evaluating but helping to secure the key learnings.
However, you must pass all tests to receive our certificate.
Will I have to take notes?
Thanks to our methodology, there is no need to take notes during the lessons as you will be able to keep all the learnings.
However, we encourage our students to do it because taking notes supports the learning experience and helps to retain complex concepts. We have even carried out contests among the #powermbas to choose the best lecture notes.
Where can I study ThePowerMBA?
You can study ThePowerMBA everywhere you want, as long as you have Internet access and a device to access the platform (PC, mobile or tablet).
Can I download the videos and watch them offline?
We don’t allow to download the videos and watch them offline, in order to prevent copyright infringements.
Do the top figures like Chris Barton from Shazam or Uri Levine from Waze personally participate in the program?
Yes. They are personally involved in several lessons, in which we analyze with them their case studies, applying the theoretical learnings acquired in the program.
Will I have a lifetime access to the program?
No. Once started, you will have a 15-month access to the platform in order to finish the program. Upon completion of this period, if you haven’t completed the program or want to keep learning with the updated content, you will be able to purchase extensions of 3, 6 or 12 months.
There is a reason behind this limitation. Statistics prove that if the time to complete the program is not limited, students are less motivated to finish it. This explains the low completion rate of most online courses.
