Adam Braun’s new venture, MissionU, is a fast and brilliant new way to gain higher education and experience that can help you start a successful career, without being crushed by debt.
MissionU is a one-year program that is offered at no upfront tuition fee to students. The payment for the program comes when students graduate and get a job paying at least $50,000 or more per year. Students will pay 15% of their income for just 3 years, if they earn that much.
MissionU believes higher education should give more than it takes, the most valuable learning comes from doing, students need to be prepared for the jobs of tomorrow, future potential matters more than past test scores and a college’s commitment should not end at graduation.
The last six weeks of MissionU’s one-year curriculum are reserved to support students through the job interview process by providing training, guidance and salary negotiation.
During the programme, students will live within 50 miles of MissionU’s designated cohort area and engage with peers and instructors over real time virtual classrooms, plus monthly in-person meetups.
MissionU’s first cohort area is San Francisco Bay Area. Application for this cohort is currently open for students interested in a major in Data Analytics and Business Intelligence. The cohort will kick off in September. The next cohort area to launch is New York area.
Braun is the CEO and co-founder of MissionU. He is also the founder of Pencils of Promise, a non-profit organisation that is building schools and supporting educational development in developing worlds. He started out his career as a consultant for Bain and Company, an American management consulting firm.
