Mini-MBA Series

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 University’s popular National Mini-MBA programs are designed to equip you with many of the key insights, comprehensive management practices, benchmarks and business strategy tools taught in leading MBA programs. Although “mini” learning experiences do not replace the depth of degree courses, they can offer a concise and dynamic approach which rapidly prepares you to handle new scenarios as a manager while strengthening professional performance, confidence and decision-making abilities.

National Mini-MBA Programs to Consider

McGill University’s Mini-MBA Series is comprised of three separate programs or cycles: Executive Development Course (EDC), Advanced Management Course (AMC) and Integrated Management Thinking (IMT). Each program delivers a Certificate of Completion at the its end and are is a complete experience on their its own. Participants are under no obligation to complete the entire Mini-MBA Series.

Managers of all levels often use the Executive Development Course (EDC) as a springboard since it focuses on the key four pillars of today's business: strategy, marketing, finance and human resources. One of the first comprehensive general management training programs in Canada, EDC has now passed its 65th year milestone. Graduating participants may either stop after the first cycle or continue their momentum with the Advanced Management Course (AMC), which focuses on the same business pillars but in greater depth and with a strategic perspective. The third and final cycle, Integrated Management Thinking (IMT), helps seasoned managers consolidate the key learnings by building a simulated business model that focuses on advanced entrepreneurial and strategic thinking. Based on their profile and experience, qualified candidates may be able to fast-track directly into AMC or IMT.
