The Inner MBA Program brings together top socially conscious CEOs, globally renowned wisdom teachers, neuroscientists, and emotional intelligence experts all in one place for students to learn from.
In this 9-month immersion program, the next wave of rising star employees, business owners, executives, nonprofit leaders and more come together to learn from some of the world’s greatest minds. What do our students have in common? They have a strong desire to use business as a force for good in the world, and they want to stay ahead of the curve with changes happening in their industry by cultivating inner skills.
At the conclusion of the training, participants receive a certificate of completion from New York University’s MindfulNYU.
In addition, each trimester students have an opportunity to receive one of the following certificates:
1. Becoming a Mindful Leader
2. Building Exceptional Teams
3. Making Your Work a Force for Good
The Inner MBA virtual program will begin on September 18, 2021, and will conclude on May 21, 2022.
With conscious business on the rise, two major trends are emerging. The first relates to inner development. Presence, mindfulness, empathy, deep listening, and staying composed under pressure are a must have for leadership, business success, and team development.
Additionally, the public today wants more from the companies they buy from and work for. People want to support companies that are aligned with their values, that care about the planet and our collective future. As a reflection of this in the marketplace, we’ve seen the rapid rise of sizable movements like conscious business, servant leadership, and B Corps.
The Inner MBA program brings together the top transformational teachers of these skills, with leading socially conscious CEOs, executives, and business leaders for you to learn from all in one place. When you join the Inner MBA program you will have the world’s foremost leaders in values-driven business, neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness, compassion, and social innovation giving you a well-rounded education in just nine months.
The Inner MBA is a Certificate program, not an accredited MBA Program. Unlike traditional MBA programs, which focus primarily on outer skills, the Inner MBA program is a complementary certificate that gives you skills and practices such as resilience, presence, creativity, collaboration and time management. Attaining these skills is more important than it’s ever been.
Having this Certificate of Completion from NYU can help employees stand out amongst other applicants in a job search or promotion, because employers are looking for these inner skills at an unprecedented rate.
For both employees and entrepreneurs, the skills taught in The InnerMBA can help develop higher levels of creativity, stronger leadership, and increased productivity with less stress.
As the speed of business change accelerates, the inner skills of managers and employees will become the differentiating factor between those organizations that stagnate and those that thrive..
Most people don’t know the “story behind the story” of the world’s most accomplished, socially and spiritually conscious CEOs.
In these participatory CEO interview trainings, Tami Simon, founder and CEO of Sounds True, and Soren Gordhamer, founder of Wisdom 2.0, will highlight and explore the internal processes that give CEOs the capacity to run multi million and billion-dollar operations in a values-driven way.
You’ll get unique access to the stories of how they overcame struggle and difficulty to lead with clarity—and a chance to ask them your questions in these special training sessions.

In addition to CEO Interviews and Q&As you’ll also have a monthly mentoring session with Tami Simon who grew Sounds True from a single idea to a large multimedia spiritual publishing company, and also founded the Inner MBA.
As part of The Inner MBA program you have an opportunity to participate in designated learning communities. This is your opportunity to learn and grow by participating in a small group that gives you honest feedback. It’s also your chance to connect deeply with other people and form lifelong friendships. What our current students love the most about these communities is the chance to network in a more intimate setting.
You’ll be assigned group work in your learning community so you can practice and integrate these skills before bringing them to your company, business, or job.
The Inner MBA learning platform includes robust forums that create space for targeted discussions based on specific topics, locations, and occupations. Participants can also schedule their own webinars, meditation groups, or networking opportunities.
Upon completion of the Inner MBA, you will be automatically enrolled in our private LinkedIn alumni group. You’ll have access to networking opportunities and active discussions that will continue your learning and personal development. You’ll also gain access to exclusive webinars, virtual networking events, job postings, and alumni newsletters.
You will receive four special deep-dive trainings including 1) Conscious Marketing, 2) Conscious Finance, 3) Conscious Negotiation and 4) Leadership Matters: How B Corps Reevaluate Business Success. Each session will be taught by leading business trainers to give you practical tools and methods that you can apply to your organization.
When you complete all coursework and the nine-month Inner MBA program ends, you will receive a certificate of completion from MindfulNYU.
MindfulNYU is the largest campus-based mindfulness initiative in the country. This award-winning meditation and contemplative life program cultivates inner wisdom, compassion, and well-being with a commitment to offering inclusive and transformative experiences based in love, community, and healing.
More and more companies are looking to hire people with a certain level of mastery of the inner skills you’ll begin to develop with the Inner MBA program. Having an Inner MBA certificate from MindfulNYU will help you level up in your career or find a job that is more suited to your true passions, gifts, and vision.
In addition, each trimester you have an opportunity to receive one of the following certificates:
1. Becoming a Mindful Leader, 2. Building Exceptional Teams and 3. Making Your Work a Force for Good
At age 22, Tami Simon started Sounds True, now a multimedia publisher, with a dream and a tape recorder. Though she had no business experience and only a vague idea of what she wanted the company to be, Tami had her guiding principle strongly in place: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Over its 35-year history, Sounds True has produced over 3,000 titles, been nominated twice for the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies, and is North America’s leading publisher of spoken-word spiritual teachings.
In a supportive, community environment, we’ll help you clarify why you do what you do, what your values are, the lifelong impact you’d like your work to have, and what multiple-bottom-line success looks like for you. The mindfulness and embodiment practices we’ll do will support you to become a stronger leader who can sustain your vision long term.
This powerful foundational module will lay the groundwork for all subsequent modules, as you become more mindful in your life and as a leader. You’ll get access to the most cutting edge practices in topics such as immunity to change, setting impactful goals, and building a leadership culture. You’ll also learn how your perception informs your reality, and how you can shift that perception to create more impact in both your personal and organizational achievements.
What we will be exploring:
For many cutting edge companies, EQ is becoming more important than IQ. This challenges the decades old belief system that tells us to leave our emotions at home. Instead we’re invited to explore emotions effectively in a work context. The many benefits of emotional intelligence at work include faster conflict resolution, and more inclusive and empathetic discussions where everybody feels heard. This naturally leads to more cooperative, creative and productive teams.
What we will be exploring:
As leaders in a new way of doing business, we must learn to understand other people’s perspectives and practice inclusion. This module will support you to understand how to work with different work styles, thought patterns, strengths, and limitations. You’ll learn from top trainers currently working to increase awareness on these important topics.
What we will be exploring:
For individuals, groups, and organizations to operate at peak performance in the face of today’s complexity and speed, leaders must learn how to create environments of true authenticity and flow. Authentic community allows creativity, inclusivity, and innovation to thrive.
What we will be exploring:
We’re living in a time of unprecedented change that impacts how we engage both personally and professionally with the world around us. While it’s not possible to predict the future of our industry as it evolves so rapidly, we can still prepare ourselves to step up and lead. This module will support you to adapt to change as it happens through embodiment practices, important leadership capacities, and dedication to our commitments.
What we will be exploring:
This module will equip you to take all of your newfound skills and continuously use them to bring your vision into reality. You’ll concretize
changes you feel inspired to make in your work and life. Topics range from enlisting volunteers, practicing self-care, and embodied leadership.
What we will be exploring:
Richard will cover the fundamental principles of applying a conscious marketing approach for increased personal and organizational success and to create unique positioning in the marketplace.
Erica will instruct on the art of mindfully applying conscious negotiation to enhance personal and professional success. Erica will also offer an hour of Live Q&A in the final week of the module.
Jenny will offer a 3-part Business Accelerator course focusing on Conscious Finance. She will cover how finance plays a role within an organization and how this role can make a positive impact not only on organizational success but on stakeholders and consumers.
Bart will present on his business journey and how it resulted in the formation of B Corp. Regardless of whether they choose to become a B Corp, Bart will explain how the B Corp movement provides learners with a guide to transform their leadership and business mindset for organizational success.
Immersion Event #2 is all about grounding your newfound inner wisdom into your current reality, and the changes you feel inspired to make in your work and life. We will explore what it means for you to graduate as a transformational leader—someone who brings out the best in others and your organization.
As an employee of one of our corporate partners you will be able to skip the application process and enroll directly in the program.
