What is a Mini-MBA?

A mini-MBA is an accelerated format of an MBA, offering greater accessibility and flexibility to those looking to upskill and stand out from their peers. While not an alternative or replacement for a full MBA course, a mini-MBA provides a significant contribution to your lifelong learning without having to put your career on pause. It is a valuable addition to your CV without the time or financial investment required for a full MBA course.
