Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program® and other MBA programs...and what will I learn?
Most MBA programs teach theoretical concepts that are not applicable in the real world. Many of the most crucial business concepts are not taught in MBA schools, including how to network, how to find customers, how to present, how to write business documents, how to become CEO in a large company, how to sell, how to get a job, how to manage your own money, how to start and grow a company, how to use social media to grow your business, how to make videos to sell yourself and your products and what the best practices are of the most successful business people in history.
You will learn all of the aforementioned topics and MUCH more in the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program. The Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program will always remain up to date and will only teach students concepts that are based on Chris’ real life practical experience (Chris has started many companies, he worked at Goldman Sachs, in Venture Capital, at Hedge Funds and in the Consulting sector; he also has an MBA from Columbia University).
Upon completion of the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program, students will be more competitive than MBA graduates of other universities as they will learn all major aspects of business from a practical perspective and not based on theoretical concepts that traditional business schools teach. The Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program will teach all major practical topics taught in the best MBA programs and much more. Plus the Haroun Education Venture MBA Degree Program will be FUN and EDUTAINING!!!!

Please scroll down to see the detailed program curriculum and the dates of every class. Classes start on Monday January 30th, 2023 and end onTuesday, December 12th, 2023. Classes are every Monday and Tuesday from 4pm until 7pm Pacific Time. Space is limited.
In addition to the 300+ hours of classes, Chris spends 200+ hours answering questions live during classes.
No problem if you miss classes as you can access all 300+ hours of classes and 200+ hours of live Q&A immediately and forever as they are all saved online.
The minimum amount of time needed is 3 hours per week including homework time. But there is no time limit, so if you complete the MBA over 2 years instead of 1 year, that means 1.5 hours per week (and you don’t need to watch all the lectures live in class if you want as they are all available online, including the Gold & Platinum Class Q and A sessions and including the Gold & Platinum Class office hours.)
There is a short quiz after each class (this is the ONLY homework). There are 100 quizzes in total. The homework is a simple short quiz that you can complete during class time if you want. Also, in order to pass you only need to get a score of 50 percent on half of the 100 quizzes. I designed the curriculum this way because I know that some students are more interested in certain topics.
In terms of the time commitment to watching the classes, you don’t need to attend all classes live if you can’t as there is a replay available online that you can access forever.
There is no time limit on when you complete the Gold MBA as this is your MBA on your terms.
Platinum and Gold students are in the same class. Platinum students receive everything that Gold students receive plus Platinum students receive 3 hours of one on one Zoom meetings with Chris Haroun to help you take your career or business to the next level. The calls are spread out over the year in 20 minute increments (9 meetings times 20 minutes = 3 hours). The meetings are on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30pm until 3:30pm Pacific Time. If students have an urgent interview coming up, Chris is happy to do more than just a single 20 minute meeting (meaning we can do back to back to back 20 minute meetings).
You get access to all 300+ hours of classes forever (and all 200 hours of live Q&A forever)! You also get new content every year that Chris adds to the MBA program for free. He adds at least 30 hours of new content every year to the program. Later this year he is adding programming classes to the program (he was a programmer at Accenture in the 90s). He will continue to add new content that will ensure that the program is always up to date.
Absolutely not. Although live classes (meaning the 300 hours of lessons plus the 200 hours of live Q&A) are on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4pm until 7pm Pacific Time, all sessions are recorded (including all of the Q&A) so you have immediate access to all 500+ hours of content. The Platinum MBA Program starts on Monday, January 30th, 2022 and ends on Tuesday, December 12th, 2023.
The only homework is a short multiple-choice quiz after all classes, that should take you less than 10 minutes to complete. Chris Haroun believes that students should learn in class and as a result, there are many exercises that students complete in class. There is a different downloadable workbook that students can download and use in every single class. The workbooks are in 3 different formats, including PDF, Microsoft Word and Google Docs (all 3 formats contain the same contents). You can view and complete the exercises in the workbooks on a desktop or on a laptop or on a tablet or even on your cell phone.
As mentioned, each class has a short quiz. In order to receive the MBA degree, you only need to take half of the quizzes with a grade over 50%. The curriculum is set up this way because not all students are interested in taking all of the Finance & Accounting, Sales, Marketing & Communication, Entrepreneurship, Economics, Management & Strategy Personal Growth and optional Computer Programming classes. This is your MBA on your terms.
No. You don’t even need a high school degree and there is no application (everyone is welcome to join). If you already have an MBA, you are also welcome to join us. Many students have taken Chris Haroun's MBA degree that have MBA degrees already from top 10 MBA schools (and many say that they learned MUCH more from Chris Haroun's MBA Degree Program than the $100,000 MBA degrees that they already paid for; scroll down to see reviews from current students in the program, many of which already hold MBA degrees from top MBA schools).
People from many countries and many different backgrounds have taken this MBA Degree Program; many are doctors, engineers, Yoga instructors, young, older, etc. Everyone is welcome to join and everyone can materially benefit from the program (or your money back - you have 30 days to get 100% of your money back)! No prior business or finance or accounting experience or knowledge is required.
Yes. We use Slack and Zoom extensively to network with current students and graduates of the MBA program; we even have in person events. Please see this link for photos and the video for our in-person graduation event and alumni networking event: harounmba.com/alumni
Once students enroll, they can access the Slack community. Our current students and alumni are from all over the world. Our network of alumni and students from the MBA program is superb; the sense of community is incredible as our students love to network with each other and help each other achieve their career/business goals during class and outside of class.
Many of our students have MBA degrees from the top business schools in the world (including ivy leagues) and they say that they learned more useful and immediately applicable skills from the Haroun MBA in just one month than they did from their previous MBA degree. Plus, the cost of the Haroun MBA is less than a few hours of the cost of their entire MBA degrees. Lastly, there is a 30 day 100% money back guarantee.
No. Chris Haroun does not allow any organization to offer an accreditation for this program. The program is based on real life practical experience (and, unlike many MBA schools, the program is not based on theory, as theoretical business education concepts are often difficult to apply in the real world). This course is not accredited by any U.S. or international educational (or governmental) board or agency. Amongst other criteria, an accredited MBA Degree Program requires a governing body to make determinations about its curriculum. Chris believes that traditional university based governing bodies prefer to teach theory, instead of real life practical skills that you can immediately apply to enhance your career.
Yes you will receive an MBA Degree from Haroun Education Ventures upon completion of the program. Employers will be able to contact [email protected] and verify that students have graduated from the program.
No, you can be anywhere in the world with an internet connection. In fact, what makes this program incredibly interesting is that existing students and graduates of the program come from all over the world. The program is completely online and you will be able to complete it from anywhere in the world (no visa is required).
No; there are no prerequisite courses. Even if you have learned about finance and accounting in previous courses, I will teach you all concepts from scratch in an innovative and fun way!
Yes. Every Thursday Chris Haroun holds a weekly 2 hour Zoom webcast for students that purchase the Gold or Platinum Program from 11:20am until 1:20pm Pacific Time, where he helps you improve your LinkedIn profile, get a job, ask for a raise, help with an interview or a presentation or your business and much more! Details of the weekly call are included in the calendar that Chris provides student access with on the first day of classes. Students that register for the MBA program starting on June 1st, can attend all future weekly Gold and Platinum Office Hours for free forever (this is the last time we have this offer).
Chris Haroun's course called An Entire MBA in 1 Course is about 8 hours long, versus more than 300 hours of brand-new content in the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program. Chris Haroun has spent more than $1,000,000 creating the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program.
If you have additional questions, please email [email protected] or ask Chris on his Weekly YouTube Live webcasts. Thanks
"This MBA course has completely changed my outlook in life and in business. Chris has been so generous with sharing his knowledge and insights to the class. He has also been a mentor to all of us and has made himself available for questions and feedback. I am glad I invested my time with this course. I will always look back to 2020 as the year I have gained a better perspective."
- Aileen Deogracias, United States
"The MBA program is one of its kind where practicality is taught and we learn exactly how successful companies are built."
- Dr. Mark Vincent Besa, Philippines
"HEV MBA is a fantastic source of knowledge and immediately actionable tools - it's not every school day you will find such a great teacher as Chris. Sharing his passion and knowledge is truly the best gift I could expect."
-David Capelle, United States
“Enrolling in the Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program is the best investment you can make in yourself be it for your career or business, period. I have learned more in Chris Haroun’s MBA program in one year than I have in my many years of business education. Chris' MBA is the only MBA you'd want to do in your life; what other MBA schools/universities offer is nowhere close to what you will get from his MBA. He covers EVERY topic.”
- Akhil Draksharapu, India
“Where do I even start? Chris is the most kind-hearted, genuine teacher I’ve ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable, but humble and always uplifts his students around him by his words and actions. Despite his busy schedule, he always manages to make time for his students and made sure that he did everything he could to help us get to the next level. Having met Chris and joined the MBA program was the best thing that happened in my life because now that I'm a working professional, I know how to network, be a proactive individual, and serve people around me. I’ve learned so much from him than my entire prior education.
I had zero business fundamental background and therefore pretty struggled to think beyond my knowledge and limitations. I couldn’t imagine how much opportunities I would have missed out on life if I wasn’t in this program. The way Chris teaches is very dynamic, edutaining, practical and catchy enough to understand. This MBA program is an eye-opening real gem. I’m utterly grateful and honored to be his first MBA batch along with having a global cohort.“
- Stella Loh, South Korea
"I first got to know Chris on Udemy, taking his awesome course "an Entire MBA in 1 Course"
Then I got a great chance to meet him in person, in Berlin last year. He is real:)
Three things I love from Chris and this Haroun Education Ventures' MBA Degree Program:
1. Chris is trustworthy, authentic, generous, Inspirational, loves his students and really passionate about teaching and indeed amazing in it. He really knows the stuff from his amazing experience. He takes you from crawling until you can stand up and run up your own business. He is more than a mentor, he believes in all of us (his students) and works very smart than any person I know, to help us make our dreams true.
2. Through his big heartfelt edutainment method, Chris makes it desirable to learn and retain amazing practical business and life skills you need for amazing success regardless of your background.
3. In relation to business/financial education, I was blind but now I see and still in the process. Thanks to Chris and his MBA Program for tearing down the wall (background, expensive MBA schools, Boring theory stuff, boring teaching methods) which normally separates many people like me from getting best quality education.
I am so grateful and humbled to be enrolled in this Program. I highly recommend this program. I no longer look for a job, I pursue my passion. So should you. You won't be disappointed."
- Vital Nsengiyumva, Germany
Passionate and Knowledgeable. He is always the first to make fun of himself, he only stops teaching when the last question has been answered and he quickly draws on his extensive professional knowledge of finance, investments, marketing and personal growth. In these respects I find him truly remarkable.
I warmly recommend his MBA Degree Program to anyone who wishes to deeply upgrade business understanding and/or who wishes to become a rockstar entrepreneur. You will most surely experience personal growth to the max!”
- Eric van de Graaff, Netherlands
"I’m amazed by the comprehensiveness of the program content and Chris’ commitment towards his students. Chris not only make sure that his students are developing critical business skills, but he is also adamant to help them achieve their life goals and make them extremely successful in their professional careers. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in learning real-world practical business skills and finding a mentor which only one could dream off. Do yourself a favor and enroll in this program. I promise you will not regret it!"
- Ahsan Salam, Pakistan
“I was impressed with Chris Haroun's informative and engaging style after taking one of his online short courses. My respect grew as he showed his ability to leverage extensive experience in finance and business to present understandable answers during the weekly live, open Q&A. When he mentioned Haroun Education Ventures was launching an MBA program, I was quick to sign up. The remote learning model is ideal for my situation. Having just finished semester one, I can say the content is high-quality, relevant and well presented. The quality of the interactions with my fellow students has also been a real bonus.”
- Jason Blyth, Australia
“Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree program is a bulletproof business education degree system, infamous for its unique hands-on (practical) experience, drawing from Chris’ rich resource base of successful corporate and street-smart career experience.
Steep with a burning desire to educate and entertain (edutaining) while delivering even the most boring financial concepts to the admiration of a global class of MBA cohorts, Chris’ method is revolutionary and futuristic. It incorporates relevant modules, features the use of props, relevant case studies, and the infinitely useful ability to research and obtain resources independently.
H.E.V MBA program provides the unquenchable spark for awakening and spreading the spirit of entrepreneurship which makes Chris’ program way out of the league of the traditional MBA degree program from most business schools that is way too expensive, boring and riddled with inaccessible professors.
My decision to and journey in enrolling in Haroun Education Ventures MBA has to date been the best personal investment I have made in my career and business.”
- Doris Ukpe John, United Kingdom
H.E.V MBA Class of 2020
"The difference between a mentor and a teacher is that a mentor is teaching at the same time doing, and building relationships. He practices what he preached, he will join you in your journey, and he will bring out the best in you, that is Chris Haroun. He is not an ordinary instructor because you can be transparent to him and not be afraid of failure when you deal with him. When a professor is great, so as the course, and that's what this MBA course is. When you want to know the practical way of how to be great in your career, take this course and you will be successful. You will learn a lot of things that are not taught in school that will make you prosper. You will gain confidence and great value for yourself. I've been taking Udemy courses from Chris for more than a year now and it helped me a lot and this MBA course is an upgrade and deeper."
- Lemark Bulalhog, Philippines
“I used hate finance and accounting when I was an undergraduate student. I did not understand how calculus equations and theories would help me become a better investor. The turning point came in 2016, I read an article about an investment banker named Chris Haroun who condensed an entire MBA into one course and sold it for 10 bucks. As you can imagine, my first impression was - "Is he nuts?" With disbelief and discontent, I decided to enroll in An Entire MBA in 1 course on Udemy. I finished the whole course in one day and it completely changed my life. I started to fall in love with business, finance, entrepreneurship, and I was completely amazed by Chris' irreplaceable charm and genuine passion for education. Now, 4 years, 6 months, and 13 courses later, I can finally call Chris my mentor. The Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree Program is the most valuable and extensive business program so far and it is entirely base on his experience as a Goldman Sachs employee and venture capitalist. Trust me, this is the only business class you will ever need!”
- Lei Dante Zhu, Canada
"I couldn´t be happier with the educational experience Chris provided in the inaugural Haroun Ventures MBA Degree program. He goes in-depth into many topics that aren´t broached in traditional MBA´s and has a refreshing, practical approach to some pretty complex subjects. Beyond an approachable, accessible exterior lies a depth and wealth of knowledge that people pay multiples of to attend in traditional MBA programs. Heartily recommend it to anyone considering expanding their horizons and seeking to go to the next level in their life and career. Thanks, Chris!"
- Carlos Cidrais, Portugal
"I came to the conclusion that, if anyone wants to survive this era in career and business, then one must Learn and Do at the same time. This is because there is less to no time to waste in such a fast-moving and disruptive world.
After taking a few of Chris's courses on Udemy, I knew I have found an excellent pilot to fly me to my destination, both in career and business.
My enrollment on Haroun Education Ventures MBA Degree program came in handy. This MBA program is so practical and stands to beat any Ivy League MBA on every scale. I have gained a Fortune 500 business and work environment experience in this program.
I, therefore stand to recommend this MBA program to anyone wanting success in career, raising funds, entrepreneurship, investing etc to enroll without hesitation.”
- Aaron Packeys, Ghana
"Being in this MBA program has proven to be of tremendous value for me. Chris is a rare personable instructor and has redefined edutainment once again. The experience can be described as being in the front-seat with a a veteran of Accenture, Goldman Sachs, and a hedge fund manager. It's not often that one gets a chance to learn with an insider of that very exclusive world.
The materials are more in-depth and intense compared to Udemy courses, and the office hours with Chris is plenty enough to ask any questions you may have.
I also have access to a global cohort and some of the people I've connected with have been very valuable for my learnings. I'm pleased and honored to be part of the first MBA class and looking forward to contribute back to the program."
- Fanny Surjana, United States
"When I was in my senior year of high school, my father told me to strive for an MBA. I've been in business for myself one way or another for more than 20 years, having never achieved that goal. Chris Haroun's MBA fulfilled something more than an education, though. Yes, it is immensely practical--I have more tools in my toolbox than I need right now! More importantly, though, I perceive and understand events in the business world more intuitively. I can strategize and plan and set goals with more confidence. And I have built relationships amongst my classmates that are already of immeasurable value. Any entrepreneurially minded individual should find this MBA to provide an unparalleled opportunity to grow personally, professionally, and practically."
- Andre Ong, United States
"I wanted to thank you Chris for being such a great teacher and for being inspirational. The way you teach and share your knowledge should be a model to apply in any topics teach across the globe. I loved the content, the format was great, and being able to learn and apply at my own pace was a must. I’m also very happy with the curriculum of the course and all the extra content you gave to us. Unlike many other teacher (in different topics), you give everything and you’re not smoggy about the how to or the what you really need... you are not afraid to give extra value and it makes a real difference! Full of gratitude about it and so many other things. Thank you for having me in your students, and I look forward to learn more and more things from you and your amazing experience. Thank you again. Julien"
- Julian Giraud, Canada

- Soley Pasban, Lithuania
"I never had a more enthusiastic teacher, ever. It is fantastic to see such a motivated, supportive and knowledgeable person teach a broad range of interesting courses. At whatever price, it is worth every penny. Don't just take my word for it, just look around the world and you will find hundreds and hundreds of happy students and graduates. Good luck and have fun."
- Dave Sneyders, Belgium
"The MBA Program has allowed me to step outside of my comfort and push beyond my perceived limits. The way Chris simplifies complex topics and relates to real-world application is priceless!
