This class covers the story of five men who rose from obscurity, even poverty, to become business giants. It is about visionaries; indeed, the greatest asset these men had in common was their ability to imagine the future and see how they could triumph within it. We’ll learn about Cornelius Vanderbilt (railroads), Henry Ford (automobiles), J.P. Morgan (finance), John D. Rockefeller (oil), and Andrew Carnegie (steel). These men were instrumental in making America the industrial and financial powerhouse of the world. And yes, they broke and rewrote some of the rules along the way.
Class dates are March 13 - April 3.
