“People … are increasingly looking for fast and inexpensive ways to bolster their credentials and brush up on their business skills. Many are turning to quick-hit business education programs, commonly referred to as "mini-MBA" programs…The classes… are designed for middle managers who often don't have a business background or MBA, but want to get a better grasp on business essentials to help them progress in their careers.” (The Mini MBA's Big Appeal, BusinessWeek, August 17, 2009)

“For those who previously completed an MBA program, the Mini MBA is a great course to refresh your skills. For those without an MBA, it’s a good introduction that will help identify gaps in current knowledge.”
