Belmont, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
bizMagic, a Silicon Valley company, today announced the launch of biz-Master - a free online “gamified” business school for entrepreneurs and professionals.
With total student debt in US exceeding $1 trillion, average tuition for a two-year MBA degree in excess of $60,000, and contracting job market for MBA graduates, earning an MBA degree - especially from one of less-known business schools - may not be a good investment.
While value of top-ranked MBA programs from Harvard or Stanford is unquestionable, a lot of MBA students might be better off by earning an advanced technology or engineering degree and learning business skills without paying a steep price for a formal business education.
biz-Master is a non-commercial online business school that addresses this problem. It was created for entrepreneurs and professionals who want to advance their careers or open successful businesses.
biz-Master is built on principles of Lean Education and offers 7 “lean” biz-Programs that are organized in 4 levels and cover all major topics from a traditional business school curriculum. Each biz-Program is a collection of free online biz-Projects, biz-Quizzes, “gamified” biz-Cases and free online biz-Courses from third party providers.
There are no deadlines and biz-Programs can be completed in any order. While biz-Master does not offer a formal degree, its goal is to develop in students understanding of the “big picture of business”, how different parts of any business - marketing, finance, operations, product management and business strategy - fit together.
biz-Master uses proprietary business strategy simulation engine developed by bizMagic to provide “gamified” biz-Cases with various performance objectives. biz-Cases serve as an engagement and motivation vehicle, and also as a “glue” that sticks together all other parts of each biz-Program.
Paraphrasing a quote from Albert Einstein, "[Business] education is what is left after you've forgotten everything you've learned [in business school]." This is why biz-Cases are the most important part of biz-Master and are designed to develop, as bizMagic calls it, “the biz-Way of thinking."
biz-Master is located at http://www.bizMagic.com/biz/ and is open for all registered users without any fee or invitation code.
The mission of bizMagic is to develop career management and “career engineering” tools for professionals who want to advance their careers or open successful businesses. bizMagic was founded by a group of Silicon Valley professionals with diverse experience in finance, marketing, engineering, financial and business modeling, as well as private equity and hedge fund investing. Advisors to bizMagic came from leading SF Bay Area business schools and from Silicon Valley angel investor community.
