Research shows educated and well-trained employees are loyal employees, who can better serve customers.  Many businesses are at a competitive disadvantage because few businesses provide a business education or corporate training for their employees.  Now businesses can offer  employees a classic business education for a risk-free investment. 

For $99 per course per year, all employees learn the same business concepts as though attending an undergraduate business degree program.  Jay recommends course projects for students, who want to receive a Certificate of Completion. 

Jay offers online tutoring and custom-designed courses for an additional charge.  Please email Jay for details.
