24EDU, a living, breathing, and evolving learning experience via a blended eLearning platform.
We have been perfecting our education and consulting practices, our business model, and our strategic tools for the last 20 years. Effició’s academic program (24EDU) leverages our unique ability to stay at the forefront of business, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurial education into a unique 24-month program.
We cover it all – the full spectrum of business sophistication from the simplest concepts to the most complex business challenges. Your academic program includes curriculum, learning support, and academic support:
The Getting to the CORE of Business (GTCB) curriculum and training materials are sent via snail mail and a part of it is available as a PDF download. GTCB is designed to evolve with your business, therefore, it can be used years beyond your program. GTCB curriculum is the driver of action using all materials provided. This is your main learning tool. The companion workbooks have time-saving templates, worksheets, and checklists to organize strategic documents, to document customized systems and processes, and to create your full set of operation manuals.
Each executive school houses a specific GTCB curriculum based on curriculum levels, units, and supplemental skill-builder courses. We use a blended learning flipped classroom format. Therefore, curriculums are released on a set schedule for review, homework, and questions. The skill-builder course are live classes led by your education team meant to cover key skills and concepts that support application and practice. Here is a sample 24-Month schedule:

Critical Success Analysis and Tracking: You will stay accountable with monthly analysis of not only your skill development progress but also your business’ progress. You will receive accountability tools that allow for objective review and feedback.
All students will have an opportunity to choose a development track based on their business stage. Learning support development tracks supply strategies, and practices that provide intellectual support intended to enable all students to have an equal opportunity for success by addressing barriers and promoting engagement.
We currently have four main development tracks that sets the learning support path for each student. Once you have confirmed your development track, all students access the following learning support:
Part of your program requirements is to complete eight (8) skill builder courses within our executive schools. Some of the courses included cover strategic innovation, research management, operational efficiency, productive technology, integration marketing, omni-channel marketing, executive selling process, business intelligence, artificial intelligence, leading entrepreneurial teams, and financial analysis. Full course list and details are discussed and shared during your pre-admission session.
You will access tutorials based on your development track. Strategy and Systems coupled together creates the framework for your business model which is executed by business operations. Each tutorial will cover key steps for implementing operational strategies and corresponding systems in a short amount of time with the highest impact possible.
Your Entrepreneurship Portfolio (EP) is your primary assignment. Our portfolio training sessions include details on how to organize the four main elements of your EP along with strategic steps to implement throughout your academic program and beyond. Your tangible outcome is to complete each section of your portfolio and validate it with certification.
Our Certified Strategic Business credential take one full year, and is filled with entrepreneurial experiences of rigorous competency, ethics, and practice requirements. It differs from an educational designation or state license in that it is based upon activities that have been determined by extensive analysis of business and entrepreneurship practitioners, and, therefore, continues to evolve with the profession.
Through our Continuing Education Requirements (CER) program, we currently offer EDU’s and EEU’s. Earning entrepreneurship education units (EEU’s) secures your Certified Strategic Business (CSB) credential by mastering designated core competencies. Entrepreneurship development units (EDUs) maintains your (CSB) credential and keeps you up to date on everything from the newest trends in business to updated tools, technologies, and techniques. During orientation, you will learn more about our credential program and earning EDUs and EEUs.
*The credential program is optional and is not required to complete the 24-month program.
