Master's courses at BFU

"What you are will show in what you do."
Thomas A. Edison


Our master's courses feature curriculum designed by successful people. We have been taught to listen to advice given by those that have never accomplished anything worthwhile. Our teachers were self styled experts, politicians, professors, and executives in large organizations.

Instead we should seek out people who are themselves independently successful if our goal is to be personally successful. Take them out to dinner, attend their seminars, read their books, attend their graduate level courses at Bastiat Free University.

Unlike professional students which become professors at brick and mortar colleges, these luminaries do not require you to read books they have written. Instead, these masters of their discipline select books they value, books that have helped shape their own success.

Here is your chance to follow in the foot steps of great achievers. Experience what has helped shape those that both think and do great and meaningful tasks.

Remember that BFU is a free university - there in nothing preventing you from investigating and entering these courses. Tailor your education to fit yourself. Your personal success will profit everyone.
