Tracking Your Journey at Acton

Getting a world-class business education in such a short period of time requires commitment, drive and a tightly integrated curriculum where each case, exercise and simulation builds on the last. In each course, you will move through a process of simple to complex, mastering the fundamental tools  and principles of cash and valuation, operations and costs, and customers and sales, one customer at a time. Another way to think about your journey is thematically, where all the courses work together to prepare you for:

Early Discovery: Who Am I and What Do I Have to Contribute?

Early “Trial and Error” Entrepreneurship: What Happens If I…?

Adding Processes: What Is Most Important and How Do I Make Sure It Happens?

Even More Complex Businesses: How Do I Balance Growth With Greater Difficulties and Complexity?

Now, here’s how your time as an Acton student will be spent:
