Dynasty Entrepreneur Development Inc. – a non-profit 501c3 announced today its online Business Apprenticeship Professional Institute or BAPI which provides youth ages 7-17 and working adults with a tuition-free business degree. Classes begin in August. The youth or adults can enroll in an afterschool program and can earn their degree while still in high school or while still on their present jobs.
What if everyone in the country had access to tuition-free quality higher education and they can actually graduate from high school with the knowledge, the degree and the finances to get a true head start in life?
Well BAPI is the answer. This business degree is not just a traditional business degree but an experiential degree which means each student learns by doing. Students learn business principles and techniques by actually participating in and running a small business, moreover, each protégée actually works under a mentor and earns income from their business.
“Every person in America should have a foundational business education regardless of their profession or passion, and that degree should be coupled with real world experience,” said Clayton McKinnie, founder and Executive Director of Dynasty Entrepreneur Development Inc. “The degree should serve as a fall back position in their life and provide them with the business experience to manage their careers or professions.”
Course content includes classes like Accounting for Youth, Marketing, Business Math and Presentation Skills. Students are able to develop analytical problem-solving and decision-making skills applicable to the role of business owner and earn an income while learning.
