New Media  | 05 de abril de 2009  | Vistas: 217

Like many aspects of our current way of life, the traditional educational system is undergoing a transformation from learning-by-knowing to learning-by-doing and being. Jeff Sandefer, MBA, presents his views on the shortcomings of traditional higher education and how these flaws can be addressed. He describes the commitment of the Acton MBA in Entrepreneurship to providing top-quality, cost-effective, and innovative education. He presents an overview of the courses the program offers as well as the quality of the professors and the curriculum. Sandefer also shares Acton’s most recent innovations, including methods for critiquing student and teacher participation in the classroom, low-cost writing coaching, and simulation games for entrepreneurs.
