WILL I HAVE THE TIME?

GetSmarter's learning model is designed to help you, as a working professional, improve your skills without compromising on work and family responsibilities. The course work is broken up into weekly, manageable bite-sized modules, with incremental deadlines, designed to help you pace yourself over the duration of the course and allow you the legroom to work when it suits you best.

At the beginning of each week you'll be presented with all the lectures, notes and assignments necessary for completion. You also have access to your Course Coach who will help you set goals and track key milestones, manage your time, and field any administrative requests you might have.
