Jolt’s Academic Committee

In order to build the ultimate business program for the challenges of the 21st century, while making sure it’s aligned with the most current needs of the market - we've assembled an academic committee made out of tech executives who work for companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Tesla and are alumni of schools like Harvard, Wharton and Stanford.

We told them: let’s build a business programme so good you would have wanted to do it yourselves. A programme so current you’d want to hire its graduates. We also said – as this is a programme for the self made, it has to be flexible. And affordable. And it has to not only connect people together with world-class, current growth mindset – it has to do it in the most effective, innovative and immediate fashion.


This program has many benefits and practical skills that are essential for tomorrow's leaders

Research

We deeply reviewed three sources that combine theoretical and practical research, including the insights of large, medium and small companies from the high-tech and start-up sectors.

Meet Project Oxygen.
The Google Way.


In the past decade, Google has devoted tremendous resources to investigating what it means to be an excellent administrator. What makes them succeed in leading their team and company to achieve their goals and what qualities make them a manager people want to work for? As part of the Oxygen project, Google examined the true meaning of a manager - whether they're needed in a company, or are they just a bureaucratic figure that hinders employees from moving forward. The Google team defined the quality of management using two quantitative measures - managers' performance ratings, and employee feedback. After a decade of research, Google came up with two insights. Teams with great managers are happier and more productive, and there are specific skills that make managers great managers.

Most needed management skills according to Harvard Business Review


Harvard Business Review is Harvard's world-renowned management magazine. The magazine publishes research and articles on the latest changes in the management world. Last year, HBR published "The 17 Skills that Leaders Need to Stand Out" - an exemplary reference book derived from 100's of articles published over the last two decades. They included the following skills-

— Building Trust and Credibility
— Emotional Intelligence
— Personal-Branding
— Being an influential figure in society
— Effective Communication
— Productivity and Time Management
— Career Development
— Delegation of Authority
— Recruitment and Development of Talent
—Team Leadership
— Creative Thinking Strategy
— Financial Management
— Development of Business Ideas

Sample of management positions on Glassdoor and LinkedIn


After gathering the critical skills managers need in the modern world into a limited list we conducted independent research. We examined around 100 management jobs on Glassdoor and LinkedIn. We looked at jobs from companies of all sizes like Lyft, Similar Web, Yelp, Slack, Reddit, Paypal, Adobe, Amazon - and checked how many of the skills taught in the program appeared.

The Super-HR Club

A valuable learning programme is one that gives you the right skills. Skills that are valued by your current and future employers.

So, we founded a community of top HRs, from small, medium and large companies, to stay on top of the latest industry needs. We meet to discuss new job positions, share knowledge, and understand what the most needed skills are today.

The insights we collected from the super-HR club were taken into account when curating the syllabus for NAMBA.

And the result?

we teach the world’s most effective business method: Startups. Instead of teaching Calculus and Statistics 101, we teach Data, Effective Communications, Personal Skills, and Management - like its done in the world’s most innovative companies.
