Is the Mini-MBA for you?

The Mini-MBA Foundations is open to professionals with a minimum of 3 years of professional experience in any area and proficiency in English.

Participants are selected from diverse educational backgrounds, across various industries from international organisations, small and medium-sized enterprises, and public institutions.

The program is the perfect fit for recently appointed managers or high-potential professionals with the ambition to grow into managerial positions. Experienced professionals with a technical background (engineering, legal, marketing, etc.) bring to the class different perspectives and know-how.


The sessions for the Mini MBA program will be spread over 11 days of courses between October and February. The Mini-MBA is designed around major business topics such as Leadership, Finance, Negotiation, Marketing, and Digitalisation.

You’ll be provided with a selection of cases to read in preparation for each module, and you are encouraged to think and bring along any personal goals, challenges, and questions you may have.

Mini-MBA Certificate

Upon completion of the assessments, you will receive a certificate to add to your CV and LinkedIn profile, and ECTS credits, a head start toward earning a graduate degree in the future.


Before the start of each module, you can expect about 2-4 hours of individual preparation (reading, case studies, etc.). For the online assessment, the workload is estimated at about 2-4 hours per module.

Tuition Fees

5,500 EUR (VAT Incl.) per participant. Flexible payment options are available.

Assessment, study materials, and catering are included.

The payment of the Mini MBA is deductible from the tuition fees for the Weekend MBA starting in March 2023.
