About the course

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 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 made 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 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
