What will I learn?


Creative problem solving is essential to survive - learn how it can help you thrive

“Nine to five is how to survive, I ain't trying to survive, I'm trying to live it to the limit and love it a lot.” In the 23 years since Jay-Z first rapped this line, he has released 14 albums, founded a clothing company, served as president of a record label, taken charge of a media streaming service, and is raising three children. This is creative hustle. There will only be one Jay-Z – and there is only one of you. This pop-out is about designing your own creative hustle. Take this course if you want to build the mindset, skills, and network to sharpen your creative strengths. It is open to students of all experience levels.
