Tekedia Mini-MBA Syllabus

Theme: Innovation, Growth & Digital Execution – Techniques for Building Category-King Companies


Over the last few decades, digital technology has emerged as a very critical element in organizational competitiveness. It has transformed industrial sectors and anchored new business architectures, redesigning markets and facilitating efficiency in the allocation and utilization of factors of production. The impacts have been consequential: nations like Nigeria are moving towards knowledge-based economic structures and information societies, comprising networks of individuals, firms and states that are linked electronically and in interdependent relationships. In this program, we will examine this redesign within the context of fixing market frictions and deploying growth business frameworks in a world of perception demand where meeting needs and expectations of customers are not enough.

Capstone-Based Certificate Program

Tekedia capstone is a research paper or a case study exploring a topic, market, sector or a company. You will pick a topic which the Institute will approve. Then you will go and execute that project. Think of this as a final year student product in a university. We expect it to last a maximum of 3 months. The member will submit a report at the end of the capstone. For someone who wants to start a business, you may choose a topic to do market study in that sector. You design a questionnaire and execute your study. Essentially, the essence of this is to apply what you have learnt in the Mini-MBA to produce a practical business document.

You must have attended, begun or about attending Tekedia Mini-MBA to qualify to register. Each certificate course costs $60 or N20,000 as noted above where the Certificate tracks were listed.
