2018 miniMBA Program

Dear GMCA Member,

The GMCA 2018 miniMBA program registration is now open! This 10-lecture program will provide graduate students and post-docs with:

  • A grounding in fundamental business concepts
  • The opportunity to learn from business experts
  • The chance to apply this new knowledge directly to business cases

Course format:
The lectures will be taught by industry professionals with diverse backgrounds. Each class will consist of one-hour lecture on a specific topic, a mini group case practice on the same topic, followed by a group presentation of the solution. The course will cover concepts from the popular “Ten Day MBA” book, by Steven Silbiger.

At the end of the course, students will have the option to participate in a case competition, which will be judged by a panel of consultants.

**Please note, this is a very popular offering and our waiting lists are usually full. If you cannot attend ALL of the lectures please consider taking the class the next time that it is offered**

The program will run on U of T St. George campus on February 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 21, 23, and 28. Lectures will be held from 6-8pm. We will release locations and speaker information to selected members.
