The School of Business Leadership is a two-year online school with real-time group interaction and support from trained facilitators. A conference component called the GoBusiness Intensive is an integral part of the experience. Enrollment is open year-round with new groups forming quarterly.
Our annual school Intensive event In the United States is open to all, but it is a prerequisite for those going into GoBusiness200 (year two). Our international affiliates hold their own intensives in their own countries. Those planning to enroll in GoBusiness100 (year one) are encouraged but not required to attend. The goal of the Intensive is to inspire and envision attendees and lay a foundation for each student’s experience in the school.
Structure & Curriculum
Students work through the online curriculum according to the course schedule (see curriculum details below). Students are required to work with a facilitator in the context of a small group with whom they meet twice monthly via phone/video conferencing (or in person when applicable). Facilitators are trained and screened by GoStrategic and assigned at the beginning of the course. Meeting schedules for our curated groups are not preset, but rather determined by the facilitator at the beginning of the course with consideration to participants’ availability. Each lesson is allotted 2 weeks for completion, and students can expect each online lesson to take about 2-3 hours total to listen to, process, and complete homework. GoBusiness200 (year two) also includes an essay assignment due at the end of the course.
We are committed to community and firmly believe that God builds relationally by joining the hearts of men and women. Our mentor-based model is critical to the success of the course. Our desire to see students work with a facilitator is based in our conviction that genuine transformation in a person’s life takes place in the context of spiritual relationships with others. The role of the facilitator is to encourage and challenge their students as they work through the materials. Facilitators are graduates of the course themselves, have completed additional facilitator training, and remain under the oversight of our Directors of Facilitation.
Students go through the course with a small group of students and their Facilitator in bimonthly meetings via web/conference calls (or in person when applicable). Group meeting times and schedule are determined by each group, factoring in individual schedules.
GoBusiness100 (Year One)
The GoBusiness100 course focuses on the fundamental differences between conventional economics and biblical economics. Enrollment includes the course curriculum, access to the online LMS system, and group meetings with Facilitator oversight. The curriculum includes 19 audio teachings, 1 book/audiobook, the accompanying Student Manual, and Appendix. All lesson components feature Dennis Peacocke as author and speaker.
