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.

Program Time: June 7 – Sept 1, 2021

Venue & Format: Online via videos, articles, webinars, and flash cases. Program is self-paced which means you consume the materials at your own time and pace. It is completely online. You will have something to complete within 7 days. You decide when you do that within the window. Where you live or your time zone would not be an issue as program is not live-delivered.

Cost: US$140 (N50,000 naira). We have a payment plan, i.e. installment payment plan (email us for details)

Target Audience: This program is designed for professionals across functional areas like sales, marketing, technology, administration, legal, strategy, finance, etc across all business sectors and domains.

Learning Objectives: To innovate is to set a new basis of competition in an economy, business sector or market. Most times, it results to disruption. This program is designed for private (large, SMEs, startups) and public institutions. Participants will:

  • Master the mechanics of growth – the reward of innovation – through frameworks, cases and evolving strategies.

    What’s the code for the Mini-MBA?
    Best regards,

  2. Dear Prof,

    How is the course delivered; real time or self paced?

    Work demands for some people with loaded schedule may make it difficult for week day, real time delivery.

    Hello Prof.
    Do one have access to all 12 tracks with NGN 50K payment?

    I really need to advance my career though but sure yet which direction in taking right now after rcently having some challenges at work and financial crisis coming from family.
    I just wish I can invest the remaining money I have with me on something tangible as this program hoping to get help on next career step to take.

    Also, if I can only afford the MINI at moment, can I opt-in for MINR or MINF later?

    I really wish to get these help before the close of the early registration today Sir.

    1. The full 12 weeks are captured in the N50,000 payment. You can start with MINI and can easily upgrade later. To make payment, our bank info is on this page. Go ahead and pay and email my email on email noted for your login. I hope to welcome you.

        Okay, thank you Prof for the reply.

        On my way to the bank now.

        Though I don’t know what tomorrow holds for me career-wise but I can’t let this money slip from my hands.

        Let me just start this program and believe I’ll get resources to finish it or get a job while on it.

        Thank you once again for all you do for the young people around the globe.

        I look forward to learn from you and am the faculty.
