Frequently Asked Questions
What will be the background of my peers in the bootcamp?

Through our rigorous application and interview process, we're putting together a cohort of individuals who have diverse experiences. Much like an IIM cohort, expect to be among students from top tier colleges, young entrepreneurs, tech / design talent working at top startups as well as ambitious professionals at MNCs. Every learner is selected because they add value to the cohort because of their interests, specialisations and experiences across industries.

Stoa School neither offers a diploma nor a degree. We do give a Certificate in Management Practice & Leadership, on successful completion of the 12 weeks.

How much time will I have to devote?

keyboard_arrow_down

Even though the program is intensive it has been designed to accommodate the hectic lives of working professionals as well as students. Learners are expected to devote an hour a day Monday to Friday towards workshops, group activities and individual assignments. The weekends are devoted to longer sessions - guest lectures, AMAs, capstone projects and special workshops. Personal coaching will happen as per the convenience of the learner.

What happens if I miss a live session?

keyboard_arrow_down

If you are unable to attend a live session due to unavoidable circumstances, you can access the recording of the session. Our sessions are designed to be self contained in nature so you won't be at a disadvantage in subsequent sessions. You also have the privilege of attending the same sessions when it is conducted during the next cohort.

How involved are the coaches going to be?

At the start of the program, you will be assigned a personal coach (Aditya or Raj). Over fortnightly sessions, your coach will help you gain clarity on your career trajectory and work towards your goals. Your coaches would also be available during their office hours to assist you in your job hunt.

What support can I expect after the program?
