Weeks 1 - 4: Establishing your Online Presence with a Strategic Analysis
In the first month, you will begin the process of building your online presence through a strategic analysis of a company of your interest. Begin to become an expert in your field and industry through analysis of players in the business. Get feedback from your cohort and MyMBA alumni. Support your writing with learning from UVA Darden's Foundations of Business Strategy Course.
At the same time, you and your cohort will learn the basics of writing effectively online, creating a newsletter, making the most of your writing through distribution, using your writing as tool to create connections in your field.
Connections: Meet our first two Industry Partners, meet weekly with your cohort, attend our month-end happy hour, schedule 1:1 meetings with business leaders in your industry and our MyMBA alumni, and attend optional brainstorming sessions and alumni mentor meetups
Weeks 5 - 8: Narrow your Focus and Execute
In the second month, we take the course to the next level. Here's the thing about online writing - it matters what you write about. We further focus on business analysis that you will be able to use as a tool to become a leader in your industry, make connections within the industry, and build your brand. Support your writing with Kellogg's High Performance Collaboration Course.
At the same time, with the foundations we built in the previous month, we implement fundamental business principles to our careers: focus, compounding, and distribution. We apply the Hedgehog Concept to our careers - a powerful methodology for finding the intersection of your passion, skills, and value creation.
Connections: Meet our third and fourth Industry Partners, attend another happy hour, build deeper connections in your industry, and participate in optional meetings.
