Why Take This Course?

The Mercatus Bridge Program is an intensive, 4-month immersive educational experience designed by Mercatus Academy in partnership with Acton School of Business (US) for promising young individuals who want to level up and lead.

Mercatus Way

We believe knowledge is just the beginning — and that it’s the practical application of knowledge that’s key. That’s why we create lecture-free, totally immersive learning environments, laser focused on real-world applications. And that’s why we offer the highest quality curriculums imaginable, developed by successful entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Our Learning Model

 

Following a competitive selection process, the Bridge Program delivers a condensed learning experience through activity based learning, real life projects, business simulations, case discussions, teamwork, personalized feedback, and coaching.

All our educational solutions are designed to deliver REAL LIFE SKILLS – starting and managing a business or succeeding in a corporate environment.

Our activity and case-based curriculum will teach you how to listen, think, and clearly communicate. Unlike narrow technical skills that rapidly become obsolete, “learning how to learn” will serve you your entire life.

What you will learn

Learn to create marketing content, use social media to amplify your message, make content discoverable in search, run Adwords campaigns and advertise on Facebook. Additionally, learn how display and video ads work and how to market with email, and measure and optimize with Google Analytics.

  • Business Core

    These courses cover three central concepts that are key to running a business:

    • finding customers with an intense need (“How do I sell it and to whom?”),
    • building a way to meet that need for less than you sell it for (“How do I make and deliver it?”), and
    • counting the cash at the end of the day so you know you won’t run out (“Will it add value?”).

    All courses also integrate questions central to living a life of meaning and challenge to develop the habits, values, and judgment that lead to long-lasting success and fulfillment.

    The courses were created by the master entrepreneur-teachers from Acton’s award-winning MBA program.
