Introducing MissionU, a new form of post-secondary education providing quality career prep in high growth industries, with a focus on collaborating and creating powerful lifelong networks. MissionU is a one-year program that leaves you debt-free. Instead of paying high tuition fees or taking out a loan, you contribute back to the program by paying a small percentage of your salary once you land a job and have launched your career.
Although the one-year program is available online, instead of listening to pre-recorded lectures, students are engaged through real-time virtual classrooms, and monthly in-person meetings to strengthen teamwork and grow a sense of community. The program also includes experience with actual companies, dealing with real client projects.
MissionU’s one-year program was actually crafted with guidance from real professors at universities such as Harvard and Stanford! The goal of the program is to help students walk away debt-free, with a resume full of relevant experience, the foundations needed for a successful career, and a universally valuable skill set for the 21st century.
