What Is Not an MBA ® Exactly?

If you want a piece of paper, go for an MBA. If you want to be successful, go for Jolt. We’re the business school for the self-made.

Considering an MBA? Try something smarter. This May saw the launch of our most exciting release yet: Not an MBA ®, an expertly crafted programme designed to give you a competitive advantage from your very first class. Here’s why you can’t afford not to join.

It’s a community, not an old boys’ club
Seriously. Our community is made up of forward-thinking people who are ambitious, curious and here to expand their network in a non-awkward way. Unlike typical degree programmes, you’re not sat in a faceless auditorium with 400 other students. Quite the contrary. Each Not an MBA ® class is made up of 14 like-minded people, so you can get to know your fellow students properly without swapping business cards or making forced conversation over cheap wine.

You’ll learn from actual industry experts
Not people who worked at JP Morgan 17 years ago and are now making their living as a lecturer. Nope. At Not an MBA ®, we only showcase those whose careers you can really respect. Why? Because they’re the professionals of today, teaching you things they recently learned on the job that you can apply to your job too.

Every class counts. No exceptions.
That’s right. No old school calculus that you’ll never use in your day-to-day working life. Just content that gives you a competitive advantage from the very first class. And the best part? You’re in control of your learning. Design your own curriculum, on your own terms. Using the app you can browse and book the classes most relevant to you, and visit the rest when it suits you. Sorted.

You won’t have to put your life on pause
The average MBA takes two years, costs up to £100,000 and is often taught at age-old institutions who are way behind the times. Not an MBA ®, however, is designed to be taught as one class a week. Pick the time and campus that best suits you, reserve your seat and watch as your progress bar goes up.

At £85/month, it’s designed to fit around your lifestyle
But actually. No marketing spiel here. Just an affordable price and schedule that works for you. At £85/month, Not an MBA ® is the price of a dinner for two, a high street dress or a London night out. Except this £85/month is an investment in yourself and your career.

Plus, you can cancel any time. We’ll just need 3 days’ notice before the next billing cycle. Boom. ‍

We’ve consulted graduates from the world’s best business schools*
*And they told us what they felt was missing from their MBAs. To us, it wasn’t enough to simply think we’d created a fantastic programme. Our alternative business programme had to stand up against some of the world’s most expensive degrees. That’s why we recruited a dedicated committee of graduates from Harvard, Stanford, LBS, Insead and more to consult us on content and ensure Not an MBA ® is competitive, comprehensive and a genuine alternative.

Not an MBA ® is made for the self-made
That’s right. No nepotism here. No trust fund kids or jobs just because your dad plays golf with the CEO. No. Here, at Not an MBA ®, our community are creating their own paths, knocking down doors and opening them for each other. This is entrepreneurialism as a mindset, whether you freelance for yourself or work for one of the world’s biggest companies. The purpose of Not an MBA ® isn’t to make you “lucky”, it’s to make you prepared. Properly prepared. Because we’re in the business of making our students the top 1% of their industry. Change starts here. Ready to get started?
