- IT COULD CHANGE YOUR OUTLOOK ON YOUR CAREER IN GENERAL PRACTICE
A mini MBA will teach you to think differently about the key management and financial aspects of running an organisation. As a GP it will give you the confidence to take up more of a management role in primary care e.g. in an individual practice setting or if you are looking to become involved in GP commissioning roles.
You’ll be asking yourself ‘Why didn’t someone teach me this stuff during GP training?!’
- OPENS NEW DOORS FOR EMPLOYMENT IF YOU FANCY A CAREER CHANGE
A mini MBA is great if you’re looking to move to a new career like consulting or want to start up your own business and learn the key underpinning principles that will give you the tools, confidence and knowledge to get ahead in a competitive market.
It’s effectively your express ticket to being a business guru!
- TASTER FOR THE FULL MBA
Why not just do a full MBA, you ask! Individuals who have completed a mini MBA, say that completing this course was far less daunting than doing a full MBA and gave them the opportunity to get a real taster for what a real MBA would be like, without having to aimlessly enter into such a massive commitment. Perfect, if you’re trying to balance the life of a busy GP, whilst exploring this potentially career boosting/changing opportunity!
- SAVES TIME AND MONEY
The mini MBA provides you with an overview of all the business skills you will require to excel and lead within your chosen organisation or business, without requiring you to fork out thousands and thousands of pounds on a full MBA! You will also gain this essential knowledge over the space of a couple of days – a stark contrast to the formidable time commitment that is required for a full MBA – this will literally save you years of your life – can’t argue with that!
- MBA REFRESHER
If you’ve done an MBA, but are looking for a refresher of the business principles that you’ve previously learnt – then a mini MBA is the perfect solution – nobody in their right mind would want to repeat their full MBA all over again for a simple reminder!
- NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY
Networking is KEY to getting ahead in any competitive field. A mini-MBA will give you the opportunity to mingle with like-minded individuals, each with their own skills, expertise and business backgrounds. You will have the opportunity to create long-lasting links, gain insight and knowledge from different perspectives and carry these links through to different stages of your career journey!
- STUDY SOMETHING YOU LOVE
A mini MBA can be very rewarding in many ways, but it is also a very interesting field of study and can take you to some exciting and beautiful locations, depending on where you choose to do it and how you choose to apply it!
After reading those 7 reasons, you’re most likely wondering ‘WHY WOULDN’T I DO A MINI MBA?’ so why not invest in yourself and try out our exceptional 2-day mini-MBA on 22-23rd April.
