About the course

The Mini-MBA was developed in response to employer feedback and requests for a short course to introduce practising managers to aspects of business, management and leadership which will help them to gain a better appreciation of their role within the organisation and become more effective managers and leaders. The programme consists of four core modules built on essential business and management skills; Leadership & Managing People, Accounting & Finance, Innovation Management, Strategy & Change.

By boosting your personal effectiveness, problem solving and decision making skills, you will learn how to effectively lead and develop your team using your own knowledge, capabilities and experience. 

The 2022 schedule will be delivered as a blended programme, with the first module, Leadership & Managing People, taking place in the classroom over 2 full days. The remaining 3 modules will be delivered live & interactive online over 6 half-days, via Zoom.
