Only available to new students; continuing students are not eligible.
“What can you do in 5 weeks?
Climb the sixth-highest mountain in the world… and do it after 50.
You could build a 25 foot 9 inch house of cards with 1800 decks of cards… and a whole lot of patience.
You (and a friend) could ride a motorcycle from Alaska to Argentina.
You could watch a complete baseball game in all thirty major league ballparks. That’s a lot of hot dogs.
Why not run 7 marathons, on 7 continents.
You could build a spaceship and launch your dog into orbit. The Soviet Union did it.
Real people did all these things…so what could you do in 5 weeks? Something extraordinary.
Attend real classes for real credits at Kaplan University- and only pay if you stay.
Five weeks to see if Kaplan University is the right fit for you.
Five weeks to pursue your passion.
What can you do in 5 weeks? Find out for yourself. That’s the Kaplan commitment.”

“I want to learn from someone who has really been there. I want access to the best minds in the world, access to real leadership. I want to be inspired by people who are inspired, someone who understands the passion and the hunger to create; inspire me. I want to learn from someone who made a difference, from somebody who tried something new and succeeded at it, who broke the rules and are breaking new ground. I want to learn how to make decisions that will make a difference.
The world’s preeminent innovators, a timeless exchange of ideas from established experts to aspiring new candidates, a new form for this inspiration is here, at Kaplan University.
Until Kaplan [University] and comparable schools did their instruction online, there really hasn’t been appreciable disruption in higher education.
If I were to have any advice for a Kaplan University student thinking about an entrepreneurial career path, I would say don’t be afraid to fail.
What you want to do is to acquire the habit of trying new things. There’s a saying that you’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
Finding that right balance between your needs and your profession and your own growth is always something that is evolving.
One of the principals I teach is find a wing to climb under and what that means is you need to find someone in your life who can mentor you through different stages of your life.
Kaplan [University] provides access to powerful ideas from brilliant thinkers, the practical intelligence and inspiration that are vital to success today and critical for a brighter future.
I want to think on a different level. I want to be provoked by original ideas; I want to have a hand in my destiny.
I always tell young people, ‘finish your education and don’t rush.’
You actually need education more than you need money. You need ideas, you need to know how to teach yourself, you need to know how things work, you need to be able to look around you and see combinations that other people haven’t seen before.
For a Kaplan [University] student thinking about, or interested in, being an innovator I would often say, ‘take a wide range of classes.’ We too quickly pigeon hole people. Reality is that we’re all capable of being so many things.
My advice is be broad, understand that things change quickly, and understand what’s happening
