Mini-MBAs

With so many subject matter experts at our disposal (via our sister organisation, The In-House Training Company), it is comparatively easy for us to pull together an expert ‘faculty’ to design and deliver a ‘mini-MBA’ programme, combining a range of topics with our leadership and management development expertise.

A typical six-module programme might include sessions on, for example:

  • Strategy and change
  • Competitive marketing
  • Financial management
  • Business planning
  • Project management OR operational management / service delivery
  • Leadership and managing people
  • ‘Guest’ sessions can also be included, with keynote presentations from relevant industry experts.
