young woman wondering

Many people are discouraged because they are stuck in a job from which they see no exit. Or, they recognize that "the system" does not recognize their value.

Perhaps you're frustrated because you know you can succeed, given the chance. But you know that you need to stand out from the competition to get the chance. And money is tight.

Job hiring interview

You recognize that you need networking opportunities but  feel helpless because you don't know how to proceed. You feel that more business skills, certification and help in networking could really move you forward.

It's painful because not much that you have learned at school can be applied in the career you now seek.

Here’s what people are saying about the course instructor


Where else can you get access to an experienced Harvard MBA and his team?  Jay has worked with hundreds of talented business people over his career.  Here are a few of their comments about working with Jay.

Terry Whipple

Executive Director,

Juneau County Economic Development Corporation,  Wisconsin

Incredible career event!

Jay showed up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to turn around my employer, a failing environmental remediation company.  I worked closely with Jay to accomplish the task.  We turned the company around in 9 months! Understanding economics, and its application in the real world, is an essential business skill and was key to my career advancement.  The Econblox videos are some of the best educational videos I have ever seen.

Sandy Liu

Marketing Executive and Entrepreneur

Fantastic training for highly applicable cross-sector skillsets

As a Harvard MBA who has worked extensively with not-for-profit organizations, it was great to find Jay. He is an experienced, multi-industry veteran, with relevant not-for-profit experience. His ability to transform complex business concepts and networking know-how to easily digestible courses is remarkable. These skills prove to be just as essential to career success in the not-for-profit sector as they are in the for-profit sector. I was able to quickly apply these learnings to both advancing my own career and leading my not-for-profit clients to success.

Robert Prasher

Enterprise Account Executive

Mentorship really makes a difference!

In the last five years, I have worked in corporate sales for companies including Microsoft, Xerox and Bell. I have excelled in my sales career because of my continuous education and ambition to do more. Combining my motivation and skill set with Jay's insights and experience has really helped me advance my corporate career and networking results.  Econblox's business economics course helped me better understand my clients' businesses. Econblox videos are superior to any other educational videos that I have seen.  I found that most online courses were not designed to be delivered online and didn’t engage.  Not this one! I highly encourage you to test drive these Econblox courses to see how they work for you.

This Course Can Help You Excel in Your Dream Career


Comparable accreditations cost much more than what the certified Business Economics Specialist program costs. We can offer a fair and low price, with great customer care, because we chose to invest in the professional videos, sophisticated learning platforms, and streamlined web-based systems that deliver our programs. Even our proctored exams are online.  We have been transforming education for quite a while.


In contrast to most programs, our Level 3 Networking and Career Development activities focus on working with you to take the key steps that empower your career advancement. Practical application of your skills to developing the career that you want is not what higher education institutions or most online courses do.

Compared to a Masters degree, the BESt™ certification is only a fraction of the cost. Although it's not the same as a Masters Degree, in our opinion, a BESt™ certification is actually far more practical for its purpose. You will actually learn in our BESt™ program why we think that the higher education industry is facing massive disruption and why it is imperative that North American schools restructure their program delivery.

Compare our costs,  about $1,000 USD for BESt™ accreditation spread over three levels, to the costs that you would pay for a year at a traditional school, $25,000 to $40,000 per year.  

In the end, what matters is how you translate your investment in knowledge into a career that satisfies you. We focus on the practical application of the business principles and key concepts that you learn in our courses to advance your career.

30-DAY 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE


If you are not completely satisfied with our videos, course content, and support, just let us know within 30 days of signing up for the course or program, and we will refund 100% of your signup payment.

The best part is:

If you think there's a slight chance that an Econblox course or program can work for you, you should enroll today.

Because you can try the material, ask us questions...and see if it's right for you over the next 30 days. No guess work needed. Use the material, ask questions, and see for yourself.

If it works, you will have made a huge step forward in advancing your life-journey of success. If it doesn't work, we refund your money.

That is a win-win proposal!

Frequently Asked Questions



How much time will I need to invest in the BESt program?

Level 1 requires about 60 hours of study. Level 2 requires another 60 hours of study. Level 3 takes about 60 hours of your time. The more time you invest in your networking, the more you will advance. You do it all on your schedule.

Do I have to achieve a minimum grade?

You need a minimum of 60% to pass each level. To achieve the BESt certification you need to achieve 75% or more. In the event that you do not achieve a grade that satisfies you, you can re-take the proctored test once every 6-month period at the then cost of the test.

Is this a degree or diploma program?

It's neither a degree nor a diploma. It is a practical, real-world certification that you successfully learned key business principles, on your schedule, using tools that are designed for visual learners. Econblox is a for-profit, private company that provides certification, coaching, and a knowledge platform that can boost your career and help you grow wiser in an increasingly complicated world.

Is there a deadline for achieving the BESt certification?

No, there is no deadline. You learn on your schedule. You pay for Level 1 and Level 2 learning as you progress. After 18 months, you pay $95 per year to retain access to the BESt content, continuing to learn and update your skills at your own pace.

How does the proctored testing work?

Once you have completed the Level 1 or Level 2 material to your satisfaction, you schedule your exam date and time with our proctoring service. You then take a 90-minute, remotely proctored exam at your computer in a quiet setting. You will need a simple computer camera - the same equipment you would require for a Skype or Zoom call.

What happens in Level 3?

In Level 3, we provide you with further online training that focuses on helping you apply your business economics skills in a real-world setting. You choose where you want to apply your knowledge. We can set up internships or create other projects in which you apply your skills - all in a non-threatening environment. Or, choose to apply your new skills in your current job. Level 3 also helps you develop and apply your business networking skills. 

How fast can I complete the training?

You choose your pace. Each level takes between 40 to 60 hours to complete.  That's an estimated 150 hours to complete all levels. If you have a pre-existing knowledge base, it may take you less time.  Could it be completed in less than 2 months?  Yes, it's quite possible.  Most enrollees will work on the program part-time and complete in 6 to 12 months.

How much does Level 3 cost?

Level 3 costs $295 USD.
