Evolution University supports changemakers across the full entrepreneurial lifecycle from connecting to a purpose, evaluating ideas, launching and growing, to accelerator and pitch opportunities. Courses are relevant to any organization where entrepreneurial and strategic thinking skills are valued, including non-profits and established businesses.
2. Do I need to have a firm "idea" to take the Mini MBA for Changemakers?
EU courses allow you to work with identified products and services or experiment with ideas while developing key competencies. Consider the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals and imagine a way to help solve one of these problems and transform our world.
Another option is to look at NASA's Technology Transfer Program with hundreds of post-validated technologies for entrepreneurs to license. Check out the possibilities and imagine a way to bring one forward.
You might end up with a great idea after all!
3. Do I need to have a high school or college degree to take the Mini MBA for Changemakers?
No. EU courses are available to anyone who is ready to make
a positive difference. Starting and growing enterprises takes passion and
perseverance so come ready to give it your best self.
4. What is a changemaker?
Changemaker is a word coined by Ashoka.org and a
movement to inspire people to shift from purely profit driven enterprises to
ones that make positive change for people and the planet. EU believes it is the
only way to create a sustainable future.
5. Is Evolution University an accredited college?
EU is the way of the future where people gain
diverse skills with shorter certifications that improve competencies and increase
contribution levels. EU is not a traditional university.
6. Are EU courses accredited?
All courses are built at the quality level for
continuing education and college credits. In the future as EU grows, we may be
able to offer these credentials.Today, each course provides a certificate of
completion, which can be framed and shared digitally, including on LinkedIn.
7. Why do I need to take the MORE compassion course?
As we move further into the information era, the skills that differentiate humans from machines are compassion and empathy. EU
believes compassion and empathy are essential skills for making our world a better place and
offers this course free to everyone as part of our give back to society.
8. What type of technology do I need to take EU courses?
You will need a computer, tablet, or smart phone and an
Internet connection. A laptop or desktop computer will be a better environment to complete
the assignments versus a smart phone. Webinars are accessible over any internet
9. What is social learning?
Many online courses are on demand only,
where you move through the course by yourself watching videos, reading, and self-study.
Social learning provides a higher level of learning by blending
self-study, group interaction, and instructor leadership. The science
behind social learning proves it is the most effective method for developing more
complex skills and results in higher completion rates. Whereas technology provides
greater access to education, it cannot replace the social connection humans
10. Does EU offer customized courses for specific groups?

and customized trainings. Send us a message and let’s get the conversation started.
