Frequently Asked Questions

Partnering With Cardinal Stritch University
CSU Logo

CEOs of Tomorrow is excited to be partnering with Cardinal Stritch University to enable students who successfully complete “These Teens Mean Busines$” to receive the equivalent of three college credits if they decide to enroll in a Stritch bachelor’s business degree program in the future.  The University’s leaders have recognized the impact that this course can have in forwarding a young person’s business education and civic engagement, and as a result, they have agreed that the learning outcomes students gain are aligned with a college level introductory entrepreneurism class.  Through this special partnership arrangement, Cardinal Stritch University is providing this recognition at no cost to our students!

  • How are credits earned?
    Students who complete the course with a C- or better will receive a document from Cardinal Stritch University that recognizes “These Teens Mean Busines$” is the equivalent of three undergraduate business course credits at Cardinal Stritch University.
  • Is there an additional cost to earn college credits?
    Thanks to our special partnership with Cardinal Stritch University, there will be no additional cost to receive this “prior learning assessment” which verifies that the successful completion of the course is the equivalent of three undergrad credits at the University.  The current value of a three credit course at the University is $2,640.
  • Can the course count for three credits at other colleges aside from Cardinal Stritch University?
    While the prior learning assessment arrangement is exclusively with Cardinal Stritch University, the recognition from Stritch will also be helpful to students who decide to attend other colleges and universities who offer prior learning assessment. While there are generally recognized standards for credit recommendations established by the American Council on Education and other organizations, each higher education institution is ultimately responsible for deciding whether or not college-level equivalency is granted.
  • How do I learn more about Cardinal Stritch University?
    You can learn more about the University at www.stritch.edu.  Students in the class will also receive materials about the University and a special visit with University faculty and staff.  In addition, CEOs of Tomorrow Founder and CEO, Dr. Roxie Hentz, earned her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) and Doctorate in Leadership for the Advancement of Learning and Service (Ph.D.) from Cardinal Stritch University so she is well informed about what the University has to offer.
