A mini–MBA provides participants with an introductory insight into business at a reasonable price.
The increasingly popular mini-MBA is a fast-track version of the MBA – concentrating the content of a one or two-year degree program into around 40 hours of tuition.
While a mini-MBA doesn’t result in a degree qualification, it does offer participants professional credentials.
For professionals who want to enhance their knowledge toward a more specialized focus, a mini-MBA is a great resource. Mini-MBA programs also appeal to professionals in other fields who want to enhance their business competency while continuing in a specific role – an architect or lawyer looking to enhance their industry business knowledge for example.
The mini-MBA can also be valuable for the professional considering enrolling in a full-time MBA program who want some exposure to the material first. Another kind of professional who finds a mini-MBA appealing are those who already have an MBA but want a refresher course or the chance to dive deeper into a specific subject.
The mini-MBA was first introduced at McGill University in Canada in 1949 and, since then, universities, colleges and even corporations have offered mini-MBA courses that allow students to get a foundational understanding of business administration.
Some mini-MBAs are broad-spectrum, giving an overview of all aspects of business. Others focus on a specific aspect, such as digital marketing or social media.
The mini-MBA, of course, should not be confused with a full MBA (Master of Business Administration). A full MBA covers every aspect of business in a formal, postgraduate setting. It is one of the most expensive postgraduate courses, which has contributed to the appeal of the much less expensive mini-MBA which is all about students getting an introductory insight into business education.

Blockchain is a system of recording information in a way that makes it difficult or impossible to change, hack or cheat the system.
A blockchain is essentially a digital ledger of transactions that is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of computer systems on the blockchain. Each block in the chain contains a number of transactions, and every time a new transaction occurs on the blockchain, a record of that transaction is added to every participant’s ledger.
Cybersecurity is the convergence of people, processes and technology that come together to protect organizations, individuals or networks from digital attacks.
Cybersecurity has become more important than ever and will continue to be a crucial modality of protection in the digital age. Cybersecurity encompasses everything that pertains to protecting our sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems from theft and damage attempted by cyber criminals.
Green energy is any energy type that is generated from natural resources, such as sunlight, wind or water. It often comes from renewable energy sources. The key with these energy resources is they don’t harm the environment through factors such as releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Renewable energy provides reliable power supplies and fuel diversification, which enhance energy security, lower risk of fuel spills, and reduce the need for imported fuels. Renewable energy also helps conserve the nation’s natural resources.
