Preparing talented individuals for extraordinary lives
Founded in 2002, Acton’s mission is to prepare talented and dedicated individuals for extraordinary lives as principled entrepreneurs. Acton trains these active and aspiring entrepreneurs for the practical realities of building, running and eventually harvesting a business. From start to finish, the Acton approach to educating tomorrow’s business leaders is strikingly different.
The most competitive business school in the country according to Princeton Review, Acton focuses not just on the practical skills required to run a business, but also the leader behind the skills – the entrepreneur him or herself – whose development is the single most important factor in building a thriving business.
Our immersive curriculum is a unique integration of methods: experiential learning, Socratic dialogue, case studies, teacher-student contracts and the most innovative education technology.Our Approach
Compelled to create something important
Acton alumni are compelled to create something important, with 63% of Acton alumni running their own businesses (compared to just 4% across other graduate business programs). They are spread across the country and the world. They make intentional decisions and take calculated risks that have huge impacts on their lives and their businesses. In short, they’re out there doing it.Our Results
