What Mat Jacobson can say in an interview on
Why Qualified Managers Are Denied Access to an MBA:

  • 23.8M managers work across the US are helping to drive the economy of every sector of industry and government.
  • Many of these managers were able to live the traditional American dream, do well in High School, get accepted to college, and graduate. After a few years, they have the option to undertake an MBA, to further propel their careers into the industrial stratosphere. 

  • HOWEVER, for millions of these managers, who work for the largest global companies, manage thousands of personnel and multi-million dollar budgets, the traditional education pathway was not an option. They could not go to college due to financial, personal, family illness and various other barriers. 
  • WHY? Because US colleges require a bachelor’s degree to be accepted into an MBA program. Not only were these talented managers denied a college opportunity, the barriers are further compounded today, by being denied entry to an MBA program. 
  • Many world-class international universities, such as the centuries old University of East London and Ducere, or University of Wales and Ducere, welcome such managers, based not on a bachelor’s transcript, but on their proven track record of years of professional experience. 

Millions of US managers can now join other MBA candidates from the world’s most prestigious companies, to undertake a fully online, world-class university MBA, based on 5+ years of demonstrated management experience, no bachelors degree required.
