Want to Learn Business Skills From Howard Schultz or Writing From Malcolm Gladwell? Now You Can.

 


We often hear how important it is to meet with industry leaders in our fields to gain insight and valuable advice. But odds are, you’ll never get a meeting on the books with Anna Wintour to chat about being a creative director or Disney CEO Bob Iger to chat about climbing the career ladder.

The next best option is spending a few hours virtually with them — or Malcolm Gladwell, Diane Von Furstenberg, Howard Schultz or one of 50 other industry leaders — through Masterclass. Masterclass is an online platform that turns today’s most famous professionals into professors in their chosen field. And there’s never been a better time to give it a try as we try to make the best of increased time at home.

Each online class comprises video lectures or tutorials that give you a few hours of virtual facetime with these career veterans, as well as a coursebook and in some cases, direct instructor feedback. Those who opt for an all-access membership (meaning they can enroll in as many courses as they want) only pay $15 a month. 

Some courses that have caught our eye include:
