About Your Company
Intensive residential seminar programs with world-class faculty. Target audience is middle-aged and beyond persons who have time to turn to the life of the mind.
Generally 55+ men and women with income > $150K but we are looking to eventually diversify. Almost all university graduates, generally from top universities - again, looking to diversify. Many are retired. Many love to travel.
The Oxford Experience
Institute of Continuing Education, Cambridge
Our programs are academically intensive, more than anything else out there, but they also carry a strong community ethic. People cry when they come to our courses; they see a part of themselves awakening that has been dormant for many years. This is a real "second chance" to do college right, with no tests, no papers. We want people to feel the nostalgia, feel the great minds that have gone before, and feel a second chance.
Top 3 Things
1. Rejuvenation of their minds 2. Connection with a community 3. An infinite opportunity
More than 60% of people who have done a program of ours will do another. The programs require commitment and intense preparation (which pays off). It changes people's lives - several of our students have quit their jobs and begun a second act in the humanities as a result of our programs.
Note that a file is attached with proposed names that came up during a recent retreat of Board members. None were approved, but you can get an idea of our approach by reviewing them.
