altMBA Alumni Community


Leaders like you.

They’re the ones who have decided to level up, to make a difference, to do work matters.

The altMBA has brought them together and given them the confidence to lead.

They’re contributors like you, who took a leap, stretched themselves and became even more effective change agents.

Leveling up is the choice to become uncomfortable on your way to mattering. To make a bigger impact. To do the work you’re capable of. It’s not something everyone chooses to do.

If you decide to level up, there are over a thousand alumni of the altMBA who have done it too, committed change agents who are eager to welcome you. Learn more about our altMBA alumni and their stories below. They continue to inspire us and other students to keep leaping.

Words of wisdom from our alumni

Having two kids, running my own consulting business, and just life in general made me question if I would be able to do it. My kids have noticed the difference in me as well and it has made me a better role model for them about pushing yourself, working hard and being the best you can.
Jennifer C.
The altMBA was totally worth it. There comes a point in our lives where we feel we need to make a change (drastic at times) and this is where those 'next steps' begin to take shape and unfold. The altMBA is a transformation process that plants a seed for a much larger plan.
Zania S.
It was totally worth it. I came out of altMBA as a better person. It's only a month. If I had to do this again, I 100% would do it. I've recommended altMBA to several friends with family and kids.
Robert Z.
I applied to altMBA because I knew I had to...because people like us do things like this. As crazy as life was at that point, I am a firm believer in two things: if something is worth doing, it's worth doing now AND there will never be a better time than now.
James M.
Particularly for women who may be thinking about applying, but concerned about balancing their families, is that some of this falls squarely into the category of ‘mommy guilt’. When you're used to being the primary doer for your kids/family, it feels selfish to carve out this much time for your own pursuit. What I can say is that I am a better all-around mom, wife, and human being for having invested those 30 days in myself, and experienced altMBA.

How do alumni keep in touch?

For most workshops, nothing happens once it's over. It ends and everyone is on their own.

With the altMBA, we make it easy to stay connected after the intensive month is over.

On your last day, we will invite you to our exclusive alumni platform, Forward Link, where the altMBA alumni are waiting to meet you. You'll be joined by leaders hailing from 74 countries, and invited to discussions with graduates of the Akimbo workshops as well (more than 10,000 so far).

There are project groups, book groups, and industry-specific conversations. We offer weekly prompts, impromptu discussions and a chance for deeper connections with people from each of our previous sessions.

We have an alumni only Facebook group, LinkedIn group, monthly Akimbo newsletter, directory and informal meet-ups in the real world. We also have a weekly job newsletter, Linchpin Jobs, and we're constantly building and testing new ways to engage with our alumni family.

Time after time, we hear from alumni that the best part of the altMBA is the people that become connected to one another. We hear about alumni becoming friends, going to a fellow alumni's wedding, hiring each other, doing mastermind groups together, grabbing coffee when they're flying through another alumni's city.

We open the doors. The connecting is up to you.
