Classes are offered in a workshop-style atmosphere- which means: no tests to take, no papers to write, and no grades to stress about.   Instead, there are interactive activities, meaningful discussions, application of life experiences, and networking opportunities.

Our instructors use case studies and focus on what happens in the workplace rather than what happens in a text book.  They have worked or are currently working in roles within the industry that you are learning about; so they understand challenges and want to facilitate a learning experience students will find useful and enjoy.
