We have a number of universities and training organizations that we can partner to provide skills-based training to corporate or government clients.
This is content meant to be used primarily with or in existing programs as a concentration. We can modify the content if desired. You can also use the content for level 1 or level 2 learning.
You choose the concentration desired. We provide the classes, you provide the students.
Together we define an approach to the delivery of learning that works. It starts with a fundamental Foundation Approach where we provide a concentration with Full Classes, consisting of four to six Modules (or Short Courses). Each module in term has four major sections:
- A Title Section
- Learning Content
- Application and Practice

We believe in keeping COSTS LOW and do not require textbooks and other high priced resources. Just about all required content can be found on the web.
Six Reason to Consider The Academy Approach
Barriers to entry bedevil the entrepreneur for this challenges can prevent a business from getting off the ground. But educational organization also have barriers to entry when it comes to offering the set of courses required for a concentration or certificate.
Generating good online content is requires a great deal of time and money. On the cheap, you might be able to do it for 4 or 5K for a poorly basic textbook course. (sometimes called putting the syllabus online). But really high quality content takes much more time and money.

Live classes mean students must be local—mostly likely within 30 minutes of the campus. Offering classes in a online format allows one to expand many times.
According to research done on Business Week, the top three reasons employers have to hire new graduates are:
- Technical competence,
- Communication skills and
- Leadership potential.
And according to INSEAD, communication skills are highly desired in those who receive MBA degrees.
For the past 6 years, recruiters have consistently placed communication skills at the top, or within the top 3, of their skills criteria when they look to hire new people. (GMAC Corporate Recruiters Survey). The 2011 Survey shows this skill set in pole position yet again. (Source: Insead)
We grow people skills — the kind that get your students jobs and never become obsolete.
Stand Out — Differentiate Your Brand
Top brands have no problem getting students. Unknown brands will have to work harder. For example, there are over 7,000 higher education institutions in the U.S. according to US Department of Education statistics. ALMOST ALL OF THEM OFFER A BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION DEGREE, as does almost every overseas university. In effect, a management degree is a COMMODITY SERVICE in which smart students should choose a vendor with the lowest possible price. By working together with Legacee, we have a way to differentiate your programs and stand out from the pack.
