“A wonderful day which I’d highly recommend.”
Have you ever dreamed of studying for an MBA? Building on the success of the Guardian’s one-day MBA last year, we are bringing back this insightful seminar that will introduce you to the core elements of a Master of Business Administration degree.
You’ll have unprecedented access to content normally locked away in the ivory towers of universities at a fraction of the cost: while an MBA can cost up to £50,000, our one-day MBA costs less than £200.
The class is taught by some of the UK’s most experienced business academics, who teach MBA programmes at institutions including the Oxford Said Business School, Imperial College London and London School of Economics and Political Science.
If you’ve ever considered applying for an MBA, or want to advance your business career, this is a course you won’t regret investing in.
