Dr. Boyce Watkins spent 25 years of his life in colleges and yet the former Syracuse University professor is losing faith in America’s ivory towers. Out of 100 Black people who enter college, only 42 will graduate. Graduates and dropouts alike will leave in debt and about half will default on that debt, leaving a scarlet letter on their credit report and years of financial roadblocks. More than anything, colleges aren’t giving Black people the proper tools to address the conditions they face and the power to actually build communal wealth. Dr. Watkins isn’t one to just complain, he has a solution — The Black Business School.
The Black Business School offers a low cost, high quality, culturally relevant college education for Black people. Instead of meaningless “core courses,” students master subjects like real estate, the stock market and entrepreneurship. In lieu of endless electives, The Black Business School offers students an opportunity to learn how to leverage debt and credit, while learning how to build a competitive Black owned company. Not only are the subjects sharply focused on building Black wealth but the instructors are highly vetted, among the world’s foremost experts in their field. Students learn from Dr. Boyce Watkins himself, acquire the priceless wisdom of Dr. Claude Anderson, real estate investment strategies from Stanford MBA Julienne Gordon and entrepreneurship training from business startup specialist and attorney, Nichole Compton, among many others. The Black Business School offers the best courses, most accomplished instructors and a curriculum laser focused on what Black people need most.
The Black Business School exists to fulfill the educational needs of 21st century Black people. Despite gains in civil rights, diversity and inclusion, Black unemployment remains — always — twice that of whites. Despite the fact that Black individuals have degrees and “good jobs,” white college graduates have more than seven times the wealth of black college graduates. The Black Business School is for people who are tired of looking at the world as it is and wish to work for a new one. The Black Business School is for the individual who desperately wants to quit their job and get off of the corporate plantation but also, for the person who wants to build an empire while maintaining a 9 to 5. The Black Business School is for you and exists to be the ultimate partner to your goals.
College has its place — Dr. Watkins isn’t anti-college but rather, opposed to ignorance and repeating what isn’t working. This isn’t a hustle, most students actually attend at no cost. For those who are serious about changing their destiny, The Black Business School offers students options to attend for just $3 a day. Parents can also take advantage of Black Millions of Tomorrow, a program that educates thousands of children on the core pillars of wealth. Specialists are available on their website to talk with you about different options and financial assistance that is available. Wealth is created daily through the stock market but Black people are mostly uninvolved. The bulk of millionaires build their wealth through real estate and again, Black people are largely uninvolved. The same is true for a range of other areas in business and The Black Business School is the answer. Reach out to a specialist on their website, today.
