Those of you that have followed Mappalicious so far might have realized already that MAPP is a fulltime program – yet it consists of a mixture of onsite learning periods at Penn (3 days per month on average) and distance learning periods in between. That way, people from different walks of life and otherwise busy schedules can participate in the program without having to interrupt their careers.

Isn’t this awesome?! There´s a lot of ranting about globalization and the dark sides of internet use – but once again: Isn’t this awesome?!
