Greetings. On behalf of our faculty from around the world, I am honoured to welcome you to this page, for Tekedia Mini-MBA (next edition announced here), a community service all of us have created together. Beginning Feb 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.
This table below will have active links, in successive weeks, for you to navigate to the specific contents. You will see weekly overview, written materials, flash cases, videos and challenge assignments. There is a section to ask questions and discuss the topics; you can always email. More so, on Saturdays, we will host webinars.
Please note that March 23, May 4 and June 1 weeks are structured for you to apply acquired knowledge on specific activities in your company.
Once again, welcome and thank you for joining us. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]
Prof. Ndubuisi Ekekwe
