I make courses on Udemy primarily because I enjoy the process of causing learning. Many of my courses are to improve lives. One of the Economics courses is to raise money for charity. (100% of revenue goes to the charity) Fundamentally this course here, is about helping you.

About the course

This is a 19 lecture course that, if followed, will vastly increase your chances when applying for an MBA. Just a few hours and yet huge steps in business knowledge and application! This is no empty boast - some of my students have passed at grade C and above after as little as 4 (yes...four!) hours of tuition. These very very brief lectures provide you with the basics of covering a huge chunk of the preparatory Business course.

And all for a price way way below what you could spend on textbooks - never mind two years at college!

But you must a) have an interest in business b) be willing to learn from your surroundings c) keep yourself aware of business activities and d) ask questions!

The initial lecture encourages a shift of mindset. This is expanded on in lecture 7. By lecture 8 we are looking at past examination questions.

Remember, though, a lot of your learning will come as you go about your day to day activities - this course merely 'primes' you.

It has worked for others - and the evidence is there - so why not let it work for you?

Topics covered:

  • External environment (SLEPT)

  • Internal environment

  • Exam questions

  • Exam technique
