Based on The 12-Week MBA by Abilitie, a business leadership program taught to professionals at global Fortune 500 companies, The 12-Week MBA offers practical tips for managers and aspiring business leaders.

A business school MBA takes time and money. Yet with a laser focus on what matters most, there is an alternative way for aspiring business leaders to learn business essentials and to take charge in organizations.

The 12-Week MBA offers a practical Mini MBA curriculum that gives all business leaders, regardless of their industry, function, or level, the core knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively manage and lead. By uniquely focusing the two critical areas of leadership – managing numbers and leading people – this practical and engaging guide will inspire you to apply critical business thinking and a dynamic approach to value creation, people skills and decision making.

Transform your business and your career in 12 weeks, a pace that gives you time to absorb ideas and test them through exercises or simulations, yet is significantly less time and cost than a traditional two-year MBA.

Authors Bjorn Billhardt and Nathan Kracklauer are leaders of Abilitie, a global leadership development provider that has served over 100,000 learners in fifty countries, and whose clients include some of the world’s most recognizable brands. Now you can master the key lessons from their 12-Week MBA curriculum and get ahead in today’s new world of work.
