Why Should I Get a Mini-MBA?

A Mini-MBA program can be an excellent alternative to a traditional MBA, offering ways to learn new skills and business tactics or get the latest information about modern business practices. Many business leaders are drawn to this approach, providing a way to supplement their business education and qualifications. In short, the Mini-MBA is a fast-track certificate version of an MBA that condenses some of the curriculum and content into a shorter period of time. This type of program can help you to increase your value in the marketplace without the time commitment of a full degree program.

Thank you for the challenging course. I really enjoyed it once I set myself to do it. If you have another Mini-MBA program in finance, I would be interested in taking it.

Vikas Sharma, Group Operational Risk Management, First Abu Dhabi Bank, UAE:
The content is interestingly valuable – each course had: learning modules, assessment exercises with minimum passing, ‘words from the wise’ (legends), e-book, quick reference sheet, podcast and/ or presentation as well, at times. The overall learning experience was indeed satisfactory. I recommend it to the working professionals community, because it’s crisp, concise, online, objective oriented, and creates a good level of alignment in the mindset with critical organizational aspects.
