Female Entrepreneurs Renew MBA for Today’s Generation

Female Entrepreneurs Renew MBA for Today’s Generation

Education experts Emily Kosko and Anousheh Shayestepour team up to create a learning platform designed to take the world of higher education by storm.

Los Angeles – September 22, 2022 – Meet VentureX MBA, a program education company delivered through dynamic videos and animation.

“What if business learning could be as fun as checking your social media every day, to the point where it’s just as addictive? Okay, maybe that’s too far!” Kosco laughs. “But what if learning became something you look forward to every morning?”

VentureX MBA teaches the MBA core with a revamped curriculum. Older, inapplicable concepts have been swapped out and replaced by today’s most innovative strategies.

“Traditionally, most MBA programs use case studies from the Harvard Business Review. These are great, but often outdated and boring to read,” explains Kosko. “Our case studies come in the form of short videos where you learn from the source as we interview the experts directly. It’s interesting to watch and the information really sticks.”

The duo first met in 2015 when they worked in UCLA Extension’s Corporate Programs department, developing custom business courses for international executives coming to the US.

“We have realized that many executives from around the world come to California for this training because we are at the forefront of business innovation, whether it be entrepreneurship, digital marketing or strategic thinking. It all starts here. But why isn’t there a program focused on that? Not only for foreigners, but also for young professionals here.”

As Kosko and Shayestehpour were involved in establishing more than 200 programs, they became experts in curriculum development and were responsible for building some of the institution’s most profitable programs. “We used to take so many business lessons that we started to learn what was relevant and what wasn’t. And this has helped us develop material that is directly based on current staffing needs.”

This inspired the young women to start their own school. “Our original plan was to start with personal lessons. It started to take off, but the COVID-19 pandemic struck and forced everyone into quarantine. So we had to switch to online, which could eventually allow us to scale faster.”

While they strive to disrupt it, the co-founders admit that the current higher education model is valuable. “We don’t want to completely replace the traditional MBA program as it can be a great tool to advance your career. But we’re trying to wake it up, wake it up to what it’s missing and bring about change. Our long-term goal is to eventually partner with institutions to offer our programs as complementary learning resources — resources that students can use to understand complex topics,” says Kosko.

Shayestepour holds a PhD in Education, EdD, from UCLA and Kosko an MBA from UCLA Anderson’s School of Management.

The first MBA course will go live in December, but pre-registrations have already started. Will the program have an impact on higher education? We’ll have to wait.
