The MDE Online Academy is an intensive learning experience incorporating over 30 hours of lectures, case discussions and workshops. Before lectures, entrepreneurs complete select readings and homework assignments that improve the depth and quality of class discussions. The MDE Online Academy program manager gives participants the support needed to balance MDE activities with the demands of their businesses by providing them with lecture readings and materials, offering technical support and communicating program reminders and updates.
Chosen from UCLA Anderson’s award-winning faculty, MDE instructors are distinguished for their contributions to entrepreneurial education and small business consulting. They have proven success in teaching entrepreneurs the techniques to build and manage effective and profitable organizations.
Corporate sponsors underwrite the program costs so that we can offer a discounted tuition of $3,500. Tuition includes orientation, more than 30 hours of classroom instruction, MBA consultation, leadership evaluation, books and materials, meals, parking and the graduation ceremony and banquet.
