Business education for rockstars real people
Every ambitious person deserves a great strategic education – not just executives and MBA grads.
We founded Section for people like you. People who want to be great at their jobs right now, not on someone else’s schedule. People who may not have access to an MBA program or executive education, but have the fire, motivation, and ambition to build something incredible.
That’s where we come in. We’ll give you the tools, frameworks, and strategies to get to work right away – no gatekeeping involved.
Because for us, education isn’t just about what you learn. It’s about what you do with it.
A learning experience you won’t tune out
Don’t take classes that make you want to check your email within 20 seconds. Our head of community explains what makes learning with Section so magical.
Unboring business education you can use immediately
No bad PowerPoints, cheesy ukulele music, mandatory quizzes to prove you were watching, smart-but-super-boring professors, or un-diverse panels. Ever.
People learn best from other people
So you’ll always be surrounded by expert TAs, community managers, and other students to push your thinking forward.
It’s our responsibility to level the playing field
So we’ll do everything we can to provide you high-value business education at a fraction of the cost of an MBA.
To build something new, you have to question everything
So if the “traditional way of doing things” isn’t working, tell us – we’ll brainstorm with you about how to do better.
