Many successful managers look back on their careers with pride, yet regret not having pursued an MBA degree. MBA is a logical next step for those with available time and budgets. But what about the rest of us? Mini-MBA programs are designed to equip you with many of the key insights, comprehensive management practices, benchmarks and business strategy tools taught in leading MBA programs. Although “mini” learning experiences do not replace the depth of degree courses but can offer a concise and dynamic approach which rapidly prepares you to handle new scenarios as a manager while strengthening professional performance, confidence and decision-making abilities. Please note the Mini-MBA is not an MBA degree.

Assessment is through practical assignments, with no exams - to more accurately reflect the real working environment.

This qualification sits on our SRF (Self Regulated Framework) and has 30 credits, and accredited by CPD Standards. This qualification equates to 300 hours of CPD, which can be used as evidence in a CPD audit by a professional institute or regulator. Fact sheet about the RQF and CPD.
