QUESTIONS WE GET ASKED

What is The Business Transformation mini-MBA?

This is the only course of its type available today. A 6-week, 100% online, cohort-based course that brings together global leading practice, and is designed by transformation leaders and change practitioners, not business school academics. So it’s practical, real-world, and battle-hardened. It’s the most actionable business transformation course available today.

Who is the course for?

Our participants work in large enterprises, small-to-medium enterprises, and rapidly growing early-stage businesses, professional services and government. Past participants have experience in organisations like AMP, Accenture, Expedia, NSW Government, Interpublic Group, Wipro, Capgemini, Foxtel, and more.

Your business context

  • Leading or supporting a transformation in your company, function or team.
  • Operating in a business undergoing or expected to face significant change and disruption.
  • Part of a business that is proactively pivoting towards a new market position.

Your personal context

  • You want to proactively manage your career and boost your opportunities.
  • You have a blend of analytical, conceptual, and critical thinking skills.
  • You see ‘change’ as the new normal for organisations and want to leverage new skills in this area.

What should I expect from the course?

This course is designed to be immersive, practical, and results-oriented. The course isn’t about just listening and reading – it’s about doing – and so participants will complete four key exercises, using leading tools and models. Most participants allocate 5-8 hours of quality, productive time, each week to complete materials, activities, and exercises.

Participants are free to choose when to allocate their time during each week, however as the course is cohort-based, modules need to be completed before moving into a subsequent week. The only exception to this is the two recorded Live Streams, that are scheduled at a fixed day/time in advance of Week 1.

How many participants are in a cohort?

To strike a balance, each cohort aims for enough participants to create a collaborative learning environment where participants thrive, but not so many that numbers become unwieldy. Currently, cohorts comprise of 15-30 participants.

What are the key dates and deadlines?

Cohorts commence on a regular basis. Places are limited, so registering your details ensures you are notified when places become available:

  • If you have applied directly to a specific cohort, we will notify you immediately of availability.
  • If you have joined the waitlist, we will notify you when a new cohort opens, or when a place becomes vacant.

The course operates for 6 weeks, and typically starts on a Monday in Week 1. Your welcome materials will be available for you as soon as you enrol, and new modules are released weekly. There is added flexibility at the end of the 6-week period to complete the course fully.

How much does the course cost?

The fees for the course are AU$795, alongside an investment of your time. This investment is a fraction of traditional business school fees, because we’ve focused on what matters, cut out the padding and the premises, and of course streamlined the delivery so you can harness the benefits without putting a pause on the rest of your life.

For corporate programs, fees are determined by the level of tailoring to company objectives. Program costs and volume-based discounts are determined by company-specific needs, customisation, and cohort size.

Will I get a certificate?

The course is designed for you to master new skills that will enable you to level up your career. On successful completion of the course you will earn a digital certificate that verifies your participation and recognises your achievement. But remember, most importantly you will also possess a comprehensive transformation blueprint for your organisation you can socialise and start applying immediately.
