What is the Inner MBA program?

The Inner MBA program is a nine-month immersion and certificate program to train a new generation of leaders, entrepreneurs, managers, and rising-star employees on how to powerfully grow themselves—and in the process, powerfully grow their companies.

Featuring two in-person events and a nine-month virtual curriculum, the Inner MBA program is taught by leading socially conscious CEOs, educators, neuroscientists, business trainers, and world-renowned wisdom teachers.

At the conclusion of the training, participants receive a certificate of completion from New York University’s MindfulNYU.

The prestigious faculty of the Inner MBA program has joined together for the first time with a powerful shared purpose: to help business people grow in consciousness so our organizations can grow in consciousness and become unstoppable forces of positive change.

The Inner MBA virtual program will begin September 8, 2020 and will conclude on May 23, 2021.

Why do we need an Inner MBA program now?

There is now wide recognition that your level of inner development—your capacity to be present and mindful, to listen deeply and take other people’s perspective, to manage your emotions and stay composed under pressure—is a huge factor when it comes to success at work and in business.

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, who 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.

All this, and yet there has never before existed a training for this type of inner skill development in the business community.

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.
