Frequently Asked Questions
Career & Learning
WHAT ARE THE MAIN CAREER OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE WHO DO THE NOMAD MBA?
Many from our first tribe successfully launched their freelancing careers, or transitioned to remote working jobs. Some became founders and others joined the startup world;– while a few continued working with the employers they were with beforehand, but with new perspectives and evolved roles.
WHAT ACCREDITATION DO I GET?
You'll get an accreditation related to the premium online course you choose; and will also become a Nomad Alumni – joining a community for life. You will not get an "MBA" accreditation; we've chosen the name as it plays on the reason most people really do an MBA – for changing their careers, and the strong communities that can be found on most MBAs.
CAN I LEARN SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE PATHWAYS YOU RECOMMEND?
It depends; we'll certainly consider people that want to learn other areas – as long as they're fully online courses, and can add something to the tribe. You'll have time to learn other courses alongside the main online course we suggest for you; even instead of the innovation side-stream learning.
DOES THE NOMAD MBA GUARANTEE ME A JOB?
We don't guarantee a job. We've curated the experiences and learning to maximise your chances of getting a job at an innovative company, or even kickstart your remote career; by creating a blend of world-class specific learning and personal growth, which we know modern companies look for.
HOW DO I COMPLETE THE NOMAD MBA?
To successfully complete your Nomad MBA program, you must live in three different cities alongside our select tribe for three months. Additionally, you must complete your chosen premium online course within those three months – as outlined on our page What We Learn
DO I NEED A VISA?
It really depends on what countries we're travelling to, and the passport you hold. You are responsible for obtaining your own visas, though many countries waive visa-needs for tourists. Head here for more info: www.visahq.com/citizens
ARE THERE ANY PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS?
You'll want to ensure your passport is valid for at least 6 months after your final Nomad MBA destination.
COULDN'T I TRAVEL CHEAPER ALONE?
In all likelihood, yes. We organise events that are designed to stretch you, and create an environment where you can really focus on an online course. We also make things hassle-free, by providing your accommodation and travel. But most importantly, we're about a community of driven, curious people coming together to create remarkable lives. And that's not something travelling solo will give you.
WHAT'S THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR THE NOMAD MBA?
First, request an invite; to help us see if we're a good fit for each other. If so, we'll ask for a bit more information about you when our applications next go live. Then we'll have a video chat, so we can get to know each other properly. If you're accepted, reserve your seat by putting down the deposit. And start packing!
WILL I HAVE TIME TO EXPLORE BY MYSELF?
You're welcome to venture off on your own – and there'll be plenty of spare time to do so. In the spirit of community, we'd love it if you explored with other tribe members too.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
€6,900. This can be paid in full, or as instalments in advance. We accept payment in Euros, Sterling or US Dollars.
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE COST OF THE NOMAD MBA?
We arrange your flights between each city, accommodation, premium online course, and co-working spaces – and arrange entrepreneurial workshops. We also handpick the tribe of young professionals you'll be doing it all alongside. Oh, and you'll have two program directors with your tribe at all times.
CAN I GET FINANCIAL AID?
We don't offer financial aid currently. Some countries do offer schemes to assist financially with study abroad programs; and a few of our first tribe got sponsorship from their employers to do their Nomad MBA.
CAN I GET EMPLOYER SPONSORSHIP?
Yes; a few of our first tribe got their Nomad MBA program funded by their employers. To begin with, direct them to our employer's page; and as you progress through our selection process we can give you further advice on sponsorship. We've found that modern companies are very open to this program, and even ask if they can continue sending employees on our programs(!)
