The Entrepreneur's MBA

Education FOR entrepreneurs BY entrepreneurs.


GSE is a new way to an MBA.  


GSE takes into account the needs of the entrepreneur and builds programs to enhance the entrepreneurial experience, not interrupt it.  


Our signature programs are built to let entrepreneurs apply their real world experience to the traditional MBA subject matter so what you learn can have an immediate impact on what matters most to you and your business.

GSE Programs

Accredited MBA Degree


Our Mastermind to MBA™ program brings the best of a forum-like experience together with a highly applicable academic program.


A cohort of 8-10 students meet every three weeks for just over a year to discuss their academic assignments as they apply to their real world.


Students learn from each other as well as from the academic assignments, the guidance of the professor and distinguished subject matter lecturers.


Accredited MBA Degree


We created the MBA My Way™ program to address the needs of those who desire more control over their learning schedule and a private professor experience.

Up to three students can apply together to form a custom cohort with a designated professor who guides this mini cohort through an even more personalized program.


It's the same accredited academic rigor and programming but with more ability to set the perfect pace.

How to Build a High-Performing Single-Family Office and Optimize Your Financial and Personal Lives


Successful people are gravitating toward building family offices more than ever. Whether it is choosing to establish a single-family office or avail themselves of the expertise of a multi-family office, the Family Office is the way to optimize financial and personal lives.


High-performing Family Offices can deliver superior results over individual service providers from private banks and accounting firms to law firms and wealth managers. 

Family offices need all these experts, but a family office can more effectively direct and manage these advisors if they understand the nuances, intricacies, and best practices of building a functional, sustainable Family Office.


Why we created the GSE MBA

Most MBA programs are built around the institution's needs instead of the student's needs.

GSE, programs enhance the entrepreneurial journey rather than disrupt it.

Most practicing entrepreneurs cannot take two years away from their growing business to attend a full-time, campus-based program or spend weekends away from family and business for a couple of years.


Uniquely, the GSE MBA offers students a comprehensive, accredited curriculum in the required foundational subjects with a specialized focus in business administration from an entrepreneurial perspective.


The cohort model of GSE is a deliberate choice. This small group of students paired with a dedicated professor and plentiful subject matter experts make up A New Way to MBA™.


The GSE MBA helps develop critical thinking and strategic planning skills for ever-changing and fast-paced environments, including financial and operational analysis. We teach students to develop competencies in leadership, including autonomous decision-making, communication with employees, and the other important stakeholders in your business.

The degree culminates in a Capstone Project. Over the course of the Capstone, students use multidisciplinary approaches to perform critical analyses of real business issues in situations of uncertainty and incomplete information and develop an actionable solution that is presented and assessed at the end of the Capstone. 


The Capstone Project is an opportunity for students to develop a focused and in-depth project incorporating academic concepts and applying them to meaningful business objectives relevant to the student's own business.

"GSE met my needs. I wanted to continue to run my business while earning an MBA, an academic credential I noticed many of my peers had. As one of the first GSE MBA graduates, I cannot recommend it more highly. I now have the business knowledge and credentials valued in many corners of the world."
