Description

Welcome to MBA in a box: Business lessons from a CEO! 

This is the only online course you need to acquire the business acumen to:

  • Start up your own business
  • Grow your existing venture
  • Take your career to the next level
  • Get promoted and apply managerial, financial, marketing, decision-making and negotiation skills in the real business world
  • Have an all-around view of why some companies (and people) succeed when doing business and why others do not

This course is jam-packed with the same useful information and real-life case studies MBA graduates acquire throughout their training in top-tier business schools. We have even tried to make it more interactive by preparing a gamebook for you. Yeah, that’s right! Learning business and finance need not be boring!

The gamebook will test what you have learned and will simulate a real-world environment in which your decisions as a business executive will have real monetary consequences for a company. Can you think of any better way to reinforce what you have learned?

An exciting journey from A-Z.

If you are a complete beginner and you know nothing about business or finance, don’t worry at all! In each of the five main modules of the course, we will start from the very basics and will gradually build up your knowledge. The course contains plenty of real-life examples and case studies that make it easy to understand.

Five modules

MBA in a box is a collection of the five courses that are most frequently taught to MBA students. We have carried out extensive research and explored the curriculums of the most successful MBA programs around the world including Harvard Business School, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, INSEAD, Booth School of Business, London Business School and others. This is the reason the following modules have been included in this program:

  • Business Strategy
  • Management and HR Management
  • Marketing Communications and Marketing Management
  • Accounting and Financial Statement Analysis
  • Decision Making, Persuasion, and Negotiation

Teaching is our passion

For over six months, we worked hard to create the best possible MBA course that will deliver the most value for you. We want you to succeed, which is why the course tries to be as engaging as possible. High-quality animations, superb course materials, a gamebook simulation, quiz questions, handouts and course notes, as well as a glossary with new terms are some of the extra perks you will get by subscribing.

What makes this course different from the rest of the Business courses out there?

  • High-quality production – HD video and animations (This isn’t a collection of boring lectures!)
  • Knowledgeable instructor (CEO of an 8 digit business)
  • Complete training – we will cover all major topics and skills you need to become an entrepreneur, a successful investor, or a business executive
  • Extensive Case Studies that will help you reinforce everything that you’ve learned
  • Gamebook - solve our Gamebook and make this course an interactive experience to test what you’ve learned while taking the course
  • Excellent support - if you don’t understand a concept or you simply want to drop us a line, you’ll receive an answer within 1 business day
  • Dynamic - we don’t want to waste your time! The instructor keeps up a very good pace throughout the whole course
  • Bonus prizes - upon completion of 50% and 100% of the course, you will receive two bonus gifts

Why do you need these skills?

  1. Salary/Income - it is not a coincidence that MBA graduates earn 40% more than their peers – they have the skills and knowledge that allows them to see the bigger picture. This course would allow you to do just that – see the bigger picture and have a holistic view of why certain businesses succeed and what needs to be done to improve their performance
  2. Promotions - MBA students acquire valuable technical skills, which makes them the leading candidates for senior roles within corporations
  3. Secure Future - there is high demand for skilled business executives on the job market, and you won’t have to be concerned about finding a job
  4. Growth - this isn’t a boring job. Every day, you will face different challenges that will challenge your existing skills
