The UCCS Mini-MBA program is your fast-track to career advancement. You will learn broad business concepts in 13 weeks - long enough to gain comprehensive business knowledge while still balancing work and personal commitments. Just like our AACSB-accredited business programs, the Mini-MBA is taught by our internationally-recognized instructors that specialize in translating current business theory into practice. Whether you're looking to advance your career, transition industries, fill gaps in your business toolkit or gain a competitive advantage in the workplace, the UCCS Mini-MBA provides unparalleled opportunities for professional development and transformation.
A hallmark of our program is a commitment to ethical leadership and principle-based ethics education. We believe that the best leaders are the ones that utilize business acumen through an ethical lens - leaving the business world a better place than how they found it.
You will learn under the same faculty that teach our AACSB-accredited business programs - a distinction that places us in the top five percent of business schools worldwide. The Mini-MBA provides critical business fundamentals while sparing the cost of the full MBA.
The cohort-based class structure allows you to build lasting connections with your peers. You will benefit from a collaborative and collegial environment with classmates and professors throughout the program.
The capstone project "75k in 75 Days" helps you achieve real financial impact in your organization. Alongside your executive education certificate, you will leave with a robust understanding of strategy development and implementation, and how to deliver real ROI to your company.
