Frequently asked questions

Is there homework? 

No. We will ask you to do some reading, to watch all the pre-recorded videos and to be present for all the live lectures by our experts and guest lecturers. 

What is expected of me during a Deep Dive?

How you participate in each Deep Dive is up to you. Each Deep Dives encourages participation and interaction amongst the community to deepen your understanding of the issues and as a way to start networking. We do not require you to do any of these things. But like most things in life, the more you participate, the more you get out of it.  

Will I get certified?

Yes. If you watch all the videos and attend all the live lectures we will issue you a certificate that you can add to your LinkedIn profile.

What if I change my mind?

We will reimburse you in full if you cancel no later than two weeks prior to the commencement of the Deep Dive. As spaces are limited in each Deep Dive, a cancellation inside of two weeks and until the Deep Dive starts will receive a 100% credit that can be applied to any future Deep Dive.
