Many successful managers look back on their careers with pride, yet regret not having pursued an MBA degree. EMBAs (Executive MBAs) and PMBAs (Professional or Part-time MBAs) are a logical next step for those with available time and budgets. But what about the rest of us?
McGill’s popular Mini-MBA programs are designed to equip you with many of the key insights, comprehensive management practices, benchmarks and tools taught in leading MBA programs. Although “mini” learning experiences do not replace the depth of full degree courses, they can offer a concise and dynamic approach which rapidly prepares you to handle new scenarios as a manager while strengthening your confidence, decision-making abilities and performance on the job.
Three Mini-MBA Programs to Consider
McGill’s Mini-MBA Suite comprises three separate programs; Executive Development Course (EDC), Advanced Management Course (AMC) and Integrated Management Thinking (IMT).
*Each program delivers a Certificate of Completion at the end and are complete experience on their own. Participants are under no obligation to complete the full Mini-MBA series.
Managers at all levels often start with the Executive Development Course (EDC) which has been offered for over sixty years and is considered one of the first comprehensive general management training programs in Canada. Graduating participants may either stop or continue the momentum with the Advanced Management Course (AMC) focusing on the same business pillars but in greater depth and with a strategic perspective. The third and final program, the Integrated Management Thinking Course (IMT), helps seasoned managers converging all the pieces for strategic growth and entrepreneurial thinking. Qualified candidates may be able to fast-track directly into AMC or IMT based on their profile – please speak with a registration team member for details.
