NEC launches new mini-MBA course in procurement for accredited users

NEC has launched a new 12 month mini-MBA course in procurement. It is designed to boost the careers of NEC users who have already completed an NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) project manager accreditation or NEC Term Service Contract (TSC) service manager accreditation. The first course starts on 5 April 2021.

A mini-MBA is an accelerated form of 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 lifelong learning without having to take a career break.

The new certified course covers a range of topics relating to leadership, operation and management, including sustainable development, people and culture, and business development. Delegates will learn to collaborate with others from a contract management background to apply new management and leadership learning to existing procurement issues.

Consisting of a two-day tutor-led classroom session with practical exercises and case studies, and four self-paced e-learning modules, the programme is concluded by an assessed personal and professional reflection to validate delegates’ continued professional development.
