In November 2010, at the North America Regional Groups Conference, a new initiative was launched to expand the services IIB provided to the Small Business Community. A new entity was established, The International Independent Business University (IIBU), to provide academic content focused on practical training in the key areas of concern to Small Business owners and advisors. This content was structured into a formal graduate degree program, the MBArts (Master of Business Arts) and was registered as such with the State of California as an approved Master level program. We have now reviewed this business model and it was decided, as part of the new structure and with the agreement of the State of California, IIBU would not offer the Master level degree program, but, instead, would offer the MBArts modules created as individual training pieces. IIBU has reaffirmed its status with the State of California and is recognized as an educational institution.
The Founder, Linden Dyason, is in the process of restructuring the way IIB will operate going forward and is working with IIBU's CEO, Gene Paplanus to incorporate IIBU's graduate level content into the new structure.
The IIBU - Business Arts Certificate Program (BACP) is designed for Business Owners and/or Advisors who want to learn new skills to grow their businesses or support their clients. There will be 63 modules organized into 7 key skill areas:
Skill Area 1 - BUSINESS PLANNING
Skill Area 2 - ACCOUNTING & FINANCE
Skill Area 3 - SALES & MARKETING
Skill Area 4 – OPERATIONS
Skill Area 5 - MANAGING PEOPLE
Skill area 6 –MANAGEMENT & USE of TECHNOLOGY
Skill Area 7 - EXITING A BUSINESS
Modules can be taken individually or taken in a sequence within a specific skill area to earn a Business Arts Certificate, awarded upon successful completion of 4 modules in a specific Skill Area 1-7.
We hope you find this new offering engaging and interesting. A complete Catalog of Modules and Enrollment Information, is available on this site.
