Expand your knowledge

The Comms Council and Marketing Week UK have announced a partnership to market for the first time in New Zealand the Marketing Week Mini MBA in marketing, led by Mark Ritson.

The Marketing Week Mini MBA in Marketing covers the same core marketing modules as leading MBA programmes, in 12 online lessons followed by an MBA standard end-of-term assessment.

The Mini MBA distils the core marketing function of a full MBA programme into an easily digestible and thoroughly engaging 12-week course.

The online course is developed and presented by Ritson.

Comms Council CEO Paul Head says not everyone has the time or funding to complete a full MBA.

“This course offers a meaningful and affordable alternative for those wishing to improve their marketing skills or get a better understanding of the disciplines.”

The course is appropriate for a wide range of audiences, including managers and executives from other disciplines wishing to broaden their marketing knowledge, senior marketers looking to get high-level strategic lessons from one of the world’s leading marketing consultants, to those marketers wishing to equip themselves to step up the next level.
