    Dear Dustin,
    Does this one-year MBA program include lots of writing, or mainly are examined through quizzes? Thanks.

    The primary evaluation is the quizzes and tests. I've only done 2 of the 6 projects in the program. The first project was a case study that involved writing a few pages to analyze the company's financial statements in addition to preparing the statements themselves. The second project was a 5 minute video examining the microeconomics factors affecting a company and advising them on a business decision (so that'd be about 750 words if written down.) I understand the later projects do involve more writing.

    Wow... Quantic probably won't get as many applicants now if they have students paying for the regular MBA as they do the Executive MBA. I was accepted into the Executive MBA with a scholarship but never enrolled because I didn't think $7000+ was worth the investment for a nationally accredited degree plus I have other financial hardships. There are a lot of MBA programs that are online with the $10k price tag that are regionally accredited.

    I agree. They are offering a lot of scholarships, and I'm still seeing people online saying they're getting 100% scholarships, but without more transparency it's hard to know if the chances of people attending for free have gone up or down from the 7%.

    This is an excerpt from an FAQ that was provided recently:

    That equals 37 credit hours without the electives. Interesting.

    Edit: Whoops! I missed some lines.

    You folks are fast. Mine is 52% complete. I'm on the EMBA.

    So far out of the 9 concentrations I've done
    1. Business Foundations
    2. Accounting
    3. Markets and Economies
    4. Data and decisions
    5. Operations Management
    Next is Leading Organizations

    And out of the 3 needed specializations I've done 1, Blockchain Specialization. I will be doing two more.

    So far I really enjoyed this course and glad I made it a priority this taking a 1-year breather from the LLM route I'm in (I've done the PGCert Law so far).

    Great work! I'm a little ahead, because my work and Data Science coursework ebbs and flows so I can go weeks without doing any lessons while I focus on data science and then spend several days catching up so by doing a few more lessons each day than expected I can build up the cushion I need to do that.

    Leading Organizations project info now available. Here's some basic info from the case study prompt:

    The case study itself is 19 pages long. We have a week to do the writeup.

    Thank you Dustin for the insightful sharing. It’s very useful. I’ve applied for the EMBA with scholarship, will definitely do it if I can get a full scholarship.

    Just had my “interview” 3 hours ago. It was about 10 minutes, felt pretty scripted. I guess with the amount of students applying they’ve probably seen all the possible answers by now.

    Having completed the business foundation course, it’s different from the traditional class, but I did learn something, and for the things I already know, it was a good practice and refresher.

    From my limited exposure with the foundation course, is it better than a traditional MBA? I don’t know. But it’s definitely different and not in a bad way.

    Good luck! It's unfortunate that a lot of people draw unfair conclusions about the program from the Foundations course when it's so much smaller than the courses that follow.

    Completed and submitted the Leading Organizations Case Study today. It's a 1000-1500 word case study examining the leadership style of Robin Chase, founder of Zipcar and how you would respond to the situation she found herself in when her company was making about half the money they needed to break even.

    Out of curiosity, I assume these case study is done on their web/app interface directly? Or do you submit a separate word document? I am just wondering what is the format like. As such activities do not take place in the foundation courses. And yes I think they should throw in an explanation that the foundation course does not reflect the complete format of the MBA program, else it may give people the wrong idea that it is too easy.
