The Five Day MBA
26 – 30 March 2017
The Address Hotel, Dubai Marina, Dubai, UAE
Overview

The business environment has changed. In the past, it was made up of a series of 'expert' business functions, which kept to their own disciplines and had little understanding of the complete picture. In an age where cross-functional working and relationship management have taken to the fore, it is essential for all business managers to gain a general approach as well as that of their individual disciplines.

The purpose of this workshop is to develop an understanding of business fundamentals. It is designed for those individuals who wish to gain the business skills provided by a traditional MBA programme without incurring the time and cost necessary to undertake a full MBA programme.

It is ideal for all current managers and those aspiring to become managers. It works well in all business types and also can offer essential skills for the budding entrepreneur, as well as well-seasoned executives.
