Section4 was founded in 2019 by Scott Galloway, NYU Stern professor and serial entrepreneur, with the goal of providing widespread access to elite business education. Since its inception, Section4 has educated more than 15,000 students in 97 countries through its intensive two-week online courses, called “sprints”.

Now, students and teams will be able to access all Section4 sprints throughout the year, as well as regular live conferences, member events, and coaching services.

Section4 celebrates the launch of Unlimited Sprints by offering 1,000 full-price scholarships, worth $995, to underserved students. About 10 percent of Section 4 students receive their education at no cost.

“We believe the next generation of business leaders can come from anywhere, if they have access to world-class education and a support network,” said Greg Shove, CEO of Section4. “We made the decision to open the doors to all those who are thirsty to learn and grow.”

“Exclusiveness in education hampers our economy and our society, to the benefit of a few at the top,” Galloway said. “We have ambitious plans to educate hundreds of thousands of students by offering unlimited access to our program at a very affordable price.”

In 2022, Section4’s curriculum will focus on five tracks designed to develop leaders for the growth economy: Marketing, Product, Disruption, Leadership, and Personal Superpowers. The program will feature award-winning business school professors and industry leaders, including UC Berkeley Haas speakers Dr. Sahar Yousef and Lucas Miller; former Allbirds Marketing Manager Julie Channing; and Michael Bungay Stanier, bestselling author of The habit of training.

Section4 is also working with businesses to develop talent from within, an essential skill in the wake of the Great Resignation. Already, Section4’s student body represents 3,000 companies and 50 Fortune 100 companies. The expanded offering will make Section4 accessible to more employees, teams, and companies.

“As the rapid pace of change accelerates, developing your team’s strategic skills isn’t a nice thing to have, it’s a must,” Shove said. “Offering unlimited training at this price makes it a no-brainer for companies – either to partner directly with us or to reimburse their team members for joining Section4.”
