Future Leaders Young MBA is a taster of an MBA programme at a prestigious business school.
Students will be split into project management groups of up to five and will work together through seminars and business challenges aimed at simulating an MBA course.
Example topics include: marketing, strategic thinking, qualities of an entrepreneur, public speaking, digital strategy, and business coaching.
Just like a real MBA the course is designed to introduce topics such as strategic thinking and decision making, as well as introducing them to basic skills in business.
The course ends with presentations of the projects and an awards ceremony.
