The online Mini MBA is a non-credit-bearing, non-degree-bearing course designed and managed by the University at Buffalo School of Management. If you are seeking an opportunity to gain or update your business skills in a variety of management-related areas, this course is ideal for you. The program is organized into six content areas. Within each content area are modules that must be completed in sequence. As you work through each module, there are self-check questions and problems to reinforce your learning. At the end of each module, you must complete the module quiz with a score of 65% or higher to proceed to the next module in the sequence. Once you have successfully completed all 17 modules of the program, a certificate of completion will be issued.
The length of the program depends on the amount of time you devote to it and your level of preexisting knowledge on the topics in each module. On average participants complete the program in 4.5 months.
The program fee is $995 (USD). For participants in the continental U.S., the fee covers the program and shipping costs associated with sending your certificate of completion via United States Postal Service. For all others, the fee covers the program and shipping costs associated with sending your certificate of completion via United Parcel Service.
