Global Architect Program
The Global Architect is the world’s first online MBA that will show architects and designers on how to sell architecture online. It’s a continuous program that teaches all you need to open a studio, how to design and offer projects and build your architecture empire, everything ONLINE.
It’s not just another mass open online course but rather a carefully crafted experience where you will be taken on a journey in a small group of designers and mentors, who will care about your progress.
The goal of Global Architect is to help you:
do better design work, which is aligned with the business,
have more influence in your company by becoming fluent the language of executives,
and launch successful projects from scratch (or start your own venture one day).

Do I need to travel to be a member of Global Architect?
No, the Global Architect MBA runs completely online. There are no in-person meetings and hence no travel necessary. This means that the time investment is much lower than other alternatives: conferences, in-person training etc. All training sessions are presented via real-time internet video conference using Zoom Webinars (or similar)
Are the Global Architect Sessions recorded?
All Global Architect Sessions are recorded and available at our comprehensive video library for viewing at members’ convenience.
How much time will I need to dedicate to Global Architect?
The course was designed for busy practitioners who have full-time jobs. So, the Global Architect requires roughly 3-4 hours per week. Every Monday a new challenge will be published, so you will have 4-5 days to complete the challenge. Most participants find the time for the course on weekends but some get a day or several hours off their weekly schedule to invest in the course. Dedicating an additional 30 minutes each week to apply the lessons learned will help you build a better business and take your firm to greater success.
I live in Europe/America/Asia/Australia. Can I join?
Definitely. Although the curriculum at Global Architect is based on EU business systems, we have members enrolled from around the world. And the course is designed for remote learning; most assignments are done individually, and interaction with the community can be done asynchronously. There are only a few calls where showing up is necessary.
When are the Weekly Live Coaching Meetups scheduled?
Live Coaching Meetups are scheduled on Thursdays or Fridays (pending holidays) of each week at 6 PM (UTC+2 – Madrid). Since Global Architect is an interactive program, please be aware of local time zone differences. For those located in the Americas, that is Friday morning and for those in Asia, a co-working call would take place late in the evening.
What if I can't go to one of the live sessions?
If you cannot attend one of the sessions, don’t worry, you can send us your question anyway and it will be resolved in the session.
Who is Global Architect Program for?
The Global Architect Program was made specifically for architecture design professionals, but the curriculum is applicable to consultants and in-house designers. It covers fundamental business concepts that are relevant across industries, different company sizes, and backgrounds.
Do I need to be an architecture firm owner?
No. Although most Global Architect members are firm owners, many members are architects preparing for the launch of their own firms.
Which document templates are available to Global Architect members?
All document templates offered for purchase are available to Global Architect members at no additional cost.
What are my payment options?
We accept PayPal or VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and other credit cards via Stripe. We do not accept cash, checks or money transfers.
Do you offer a money-back guarantee?
Yes. As with every product or service we offer at Stoor, if you are not completely satisfied with your membership at Global Architect Program, just send us an email within 30 days of your initial payment and we will refund 100% of your money… all of it. No questions asked.
Is this program certified?
The Global Architect MBA is not accredited as it is not an official MBA program. The focus of the Global Architect is on practical knowledge and network. After graduation, participants receive the Global Architect certificate and become part of the alumni group, where they can ask work-related questions (even after the program), join Global Architect local meetups and receive content updates.
Should I have any prior business knowledge to join this course?
No. You don’t need any prior business knowledge. We will start from the ground up, avoid business jargon, and build a holistic understanding of business.
What are the deadlines and important meetings within the program?
Global Architect is designed to be as flexible as possible, however, there are deadlines to ensure that a group gets benefits of group dynamics (feedback, discussions, etc.). In order to successfully finish the program and join the alumni network, you have to finish at least 80% of the assignment within the 52 weeks of the program. Additionally, each Sunday is a project assignment deadline. Each participant can submit one assignment late but they lose the right for feedback.
What is the level of collaboration with other participants?
Most assignments are individual so you are very flexible. Even though you do not collaborate with other participants on most assignments, you have access to the community at all times. For example, there is a Linkedin community where you can ask questions, join discussions, share resources, and talk about your challenges. Additionally, every month there is an additional call with group discussions. In these calls, participants are divided into smaller groups (of 5) based on the module they are working on (b2b, b2c, consulting), and talk about how they can apply the knowledge acquired to their work.
How does the course content look like?
The course consists of slides, PDFs, videos, and additional course materials. Each week, you’ll receive around 10-30 minutes of video material, weekly assignments, and materials for further exploration. Some chapters include additional frameworks or tools. For example, Competitor Analysis comes with a spreadsheet, which you can use on your projects.
