Then Business Bootcamp is for you. The Business Bootcamp is the world's first business course designed for people who have always avoided business but encounter business conversations and decisions every day! This carefully curated course has been designed to teach business to those who've found their passion in other areas but want to be included in and contribute to business conversations. From design, product management, software engineering and beyond, this course is structured to make you better at what you love to do, whilst increasing your confidence around business principles, terminology, concepts and decision making processes.
The goal of the Business Bootcamp
→ Enable you to play an ACTIVE part in business conversations
Help you to make better decisions that are aligned with the business (e.g enable designers to do better design work from a business point view)
→ Empower you to evaluate your own ideas from a business perspective, whilst also allowing you to lay the business foundations for these ideas
We do want to turn you into a business junkie but want to empower you to understand and play an active role in business decisions. We firmly believe that business decisions should be made collectively and not by a few individuals. We think fundamental business principles are elegant and intuitive. If we pull out the unnecessary jargon and complexity, everyone can easily understand and apply business principles.
How this course differs from the rest
Using a revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy, The Business Bootcamp will enable students to master the core elements of business needed to succeed in any organisation. By empowering you with knowledge on how businesses actually work - in practice not theory, how to evaluate new business ideas: what really matters, and what doesn’t, and how to make sense of any business term to actively be part of any business conversation you will be equipped with a comprehensive toolkit to help you progress further in your chosen field.
This course is created by two innovation consultants with real-world experience working at world-renowned management consulting firm Boston Consulting Group, as well as co-founding successful startups along the way. By distilling over a decade of professional experience into the most fundamental elements of business, this visionary master class will empower non-business minded professionals to confidently make better decisions at work.
We have spent the last two years perfecting the content and trying to understand exactly what will help people in their everyday lives
