The Distilled Essence of the MBA Degree in a Fraction of the Time!

Dr. Sobel has greatly reduced his travel commitments!

Instead, he conducts a ‘master class’ (no more than 12 participants), which has an intimate and comfortable ‘feel,’ partly because they are held in several rooms on his premises. The tuition for this 2-day program is $1,795-$1,995 per person.

Those who place a premium on privacy or personal, one-on-one attention, may instead prefer to experience the program in the form of private coaching sessions.


The fee for the session is $2,995. However, since we will not be addressing the needs of other participants (as would normally take place with a group in a class), you may opt in advance for a 1-day session. The tuition for this version of the program is also $2,995, but you will have Dr. Sobel all to yourself for the duration. For ‘off-the-record’ advice pertaining to specific challenges or problems that you are facing, as well as the ‘on the record’ stuff. (Actually, he manages to sneak in some “off-the-record’ stuff, even within a group/class setting.)

Any way you slice it, your investment will be very substantially less than the per capita tuition on an individual basis.

As mentioned earlier, Dr. Sobel must keep keep travel commitments to a minimum. However, if the need is compelling and alternative means are not applicable, he will make every effort to travel to your facilities, in order to deliver the program, either to the group and/or to coach individuals ‘privately.’ (Of course, a premium fee plus all travel, food & lodging, as well as business-related expenses, involve an additional investment.) Each participant receives:

• A Certificate of Participation, suitable for framing;
• A copy of the MBA IN A NUTSHELL® book;
• Educational materials
• “Promotools” and mementos.
• Each day, a Continental breakfast and a ‘smorgasbord’ variety lunch will be served. Professional servers will be happy to fill your plates with any, or all of several cuisines worth of tasty food.
• Hot and cold beverages (piping hot tea or coffee, iced tea, soda, juices) and solid snacks (fruits, baked goods, chocolate bars and other candies, ice creams) will be available at all times throughout the program.
