Course content

Future Leaders Young MBA is a taster of an MBA programme at a prestigious business school.

Students will be split into project management groups of up to five and will work together through seminars and business challenges aimed at simulating an MBA course.

Example topics include: marketing, strategic thinking, qualities of an entrepreneur, public speaking, digital strategy, and business coaching.

Just like a real MBA the course is designed to introduce topics such as strategic thinking and decision making, as well as introducing them to basic skills in business.

The course ends with presentations of the projects and an awards ceremony.

There are two full-day trips and one half-day trip as part of the course, including a walking tour and entry to a University of Oxford college, London with a walking tour and company visit, and Cambridge with entry to King’s College, a walking tour and punting on the River Cam. 

Company visit
The Young MBA programme includes a visit to a London based company during the full day excursion. The visit will include a guided tour of their offices and a talk outlining their operations and strategies, as well as core business functions and marketing campaigns. Students will get a behind-the-scenes look at a leading company.
