Course Overview

The 5-Day Executive Mini MBA is a unique distillation of the skills that need to be acquired in order to be considered successful in modern business. Not everyone is able to devote a year or two of their time to studying for a Masters in Business Administration, but in an age of rapid change in a highly competitive environment it is crucial to have a thorough understanding of the issues involved in the smooth and successful running of a business.
The 5-Day Executive Mini MBA Business Administration Masterclass is a highly intensive training course covering all the usual subjects associated with an MBA. In 5 days a delegate will learn what normally takes a year of full time study. The course is designed to provide delegates with comprehensive knowledge of fundamental, proven strategies taught as both an academic and practical exercise.
As a result, the course will provide a comprehensive understanding of the skills and knowledge that will be required for any person to further develop their business knowledge and skills and even to prepare them for actual formal study for an MBA.
The course is designed to be delivered either as an “In House” class for an organization’s directors and senior management or as a public class where delegates from a number of companies can learn both from the course and from one another and exchange ideas and best practice.
