WilmU’s new Mini MBA course offers an overview of corporate concepts.

If your non-business career is orbiting closer to your company’s business operations, Wilmington University’s new Mini MBA course can provide the fundamentals you’ll need to keep current with your changing role.

A one-semester graduate-level course, Topics in Business: Mini MBA (MBA 5001) offers an accelerated overview of the concepts examined in WilmU’s Master of Business Administration degree program.

“We put this course together with a specific group of students in mind,” says Dr. Kenneth Morlino, the MBA program chair of WilmU’s College of Business. “It’s for professionals who want to understand the business ideas being discussed around them, without committing to a full- or part-time, 12-course MBA program.”

The careers of engineers, scientists, health care and human services workers, artists, and others without undergraduate business degrees are increasingly intersecting with the work of their corporate colleagues, notes Morlino.

“Those who want to explore MBA content but aren’t sure they’re ready to invest the time, energy and tuition into earning the degree, and those who want to enhance their skills in preparation for career advancement, will find a lot to value in this condensed business course,” he says.

The course, scheduled for a January 2021 launch, consists of eight 90-minute live online classes, one every other week during the spring or fall semester. The course’s small class sizes are designed to promote student interaction, and assigned readings and writing assignments will supplement class discussion.

Topics to be covered in the course include business structures, organization leadership, ethics, human resources, marketing, finance, data analysis, accounting, information technology, strategy and tactics, and global business.

Students must have previously earned a bachelor’s degree to enroll in MBA 5001, Topics in Business: Mini MBA. Once completed, the three-credit course may be applied as an open elective to eligible WilmU graduate degree programs, with program chair approval.
