MBA ShmemBA: Seth Godin Launches Alternative-MBA

Scroll down ↓

Ever wonder what you get for your money in most MBA programs?

Is it the immediately-actionable knowledge from classes? Not according to most people I’ve asked. Their answers usually included some variation of…

“it’s access to people with ideas worth spreading, the ability to help you develop your own and the connections to bring both to the world…oh, and make a killer living doing it.”

So, what if you could get all this, not in 2 years, but in 6 months…for free?

Well, once again, barrier-smashing marketing genius, thought leader, author and uber-influencer, Seth Godin, is breaking all the rules with his 6-month Alternative-MBA apprenticeship program. Who’s it for? According to Seth…

If you’re stuck in a dead end job in publishing, or if you made a not-so-great choice in getting your career started, or if you thought Wall Street would be a different place, or if you just got laid off, or if you’re not crazy about fretting away the next six months waiting to get fired and you’re not quite ready to start your own gig… this might be the turbolift you were hoping for. Yes, it’s free.

It’s a chance to get off that track and onto a new track, faster and cheaper than most of the alternatives. And it might even be fun.

Seth lays out all the details on his Alternative-MBA Squidoo lens. But, here’s the deal, the application deadline is Sunday, December 14th.  Yes, that’s only two days from now.

So, if you’re interested in throwing your hat in the ring for what’ll likely be a life-changing experience, go for it. And, I’ve got to tell you, I love what I do, but my hat just might be right there next to yours.

  1. I just read his post.

    Have to say I was super excited reading through it and for a second I thought perhaps I would be the perfect applicant.
    Hey, I just left a job, am refocusing on the future, and I could use the 4 hours of working on my own projects and 5 hours of various hanging around time..Then I sat and let it sink in. I decided I will attend my own alternative MBA program called Shelleys Life. That way I can eat up the hours that would have been allocated to him-

    Got to get back to that sculpture I was working on….I’m inspired again 🙂

    Hope Seth and his tribe have a blast-

    Hope the same for mine 🙂
