More Information

Will I receive a certificate upon completion?

Yes. Students will receive a certificate as proof of their participation. Please do note you will need to have completed the pre-learning phase and have attended the live session.

When will students receive access to the learning platform?

You will receive access to the learning platform 3-5 weeks before the module's live session is planned. This way you have sufficient time to prepare and go over the pre-learning materials.

What are the costs of joining this academy?

Corporate partners of The Class Foundation receive priority registration and receive 8 complimentary credits as part of their partnership agreement. 1 credit represents 1 student for 1 module (4 modules in 2021). The credits can be used however they prefer  i.e. 8 students join 1 module or 2 students join all 4 modules.

Other parties are welcome to join the session if there are still spots available. You can register your interest per module via this waiting list link. Once public registration opens we will send you a message to confirm your registration and to pay for the course. The cost per module is 395 euros excluding VAT.

As a student, what can I except in terms of workload?

We anticipate students will need 10-15 hours to go over the pre-learning materials and attend the live peer group learning session. The pre-learning materials include a course guide, four 20 min videos (2 lecturers, 2 case providers), and a recommended reading list. The live peer group learning session will be 90 min and will include a Q&A with the lecturers and case providers, break out sessions, and presenting the findings from the breakout room to the larger group.

How big will the peer group learning sessions be?

Per module we will have a maximum of 50 students and classes of 25. When the number of registrants exceeds 30 we will split the group into two, a morning session and an afternoon session. We believe 25 students per class and breakout rooms of 6-7 are ideal as it fosters a great setting for networking and interactivity.
