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 equips aspiring entrepreneurs for the practical realities of building, running and eventually harvesting a business. From start to finish, the Acton approach to preparing 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 blend: experiential learning, Socratic dialogue, case studies, teacher-student covenants 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). Our tribe is spread across the country and around the world. Our graduates make intentional decisions and take calculated risks that have huge impacts on their lives, their businesses and the lives of those they serve. In short, our tribe is making the world a better place.Our Results
