Digital Board for Tekedia Mini-MBA Edition 3 (Aug 10 – Dec 3)

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings. On behalf of our faculty from around the world, I am honoured to welcome you to this page, for Tekedia Mini-MBA third edition. Beginning Aug 10, we will start a  journey to co-learn and co-share on the mechanics of markets, innovation, business operations, and growth. We will examine emerging business frameworks, models and technologies, across different domains and sectors, and how they are redesigning the ordinances of economic architectures, industrial systems and competitiveness. This knowledge excursion will last for four months. I expect it to deepen our capabilities and advance the companies we work for. Simply, we will innovate, not just invent, to fix market frictions in our sectors.
