)-- PwC rolls out MiniMBA Programme in the UAE.
In a first for the region, PwC, the leading professional services firm, recently launched its unique Mini MBA Programme in the UAE. Set to commence on the 20th of April 2013 through the PwC's Academy, the Programme is the ideal solution for professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs seeking the knowledge and skill gained from traditional MBA programmes, without the extensive time and cost obligations.
Leveraging its global leadership position in a full range of professional services, PwC has drawn industry leading professionals from its extensive network to present the programme. The Mini MBA Programme instructors in the UAE possess an in-depth understanding of the complexities of modern organizations and have experience in leadership positions, subject expertise, and knowledge of the local and global business environment.
The Programme offering comes in light of a PwC 15th Annual CEO survey revealing that 63% of CEOs based in the Middle East see talent constraints as a potential risk to their growth and 33% have placed talent developments their top priority. As such, PwC's Academy has incorporated the insights gained from working with firms from all over the globe into the Mini MBA Programme. This customized professional course covers the most important topics of an MBA such as leadership, management skills and problem solving in the fields of project management, finance functions, corporate strategy and human capital.

Abonamah, CEO of UAE Academy, “UAE Academy is proud to collaborate with PwC's Academy to launch the robust Mini MBA Programme in Abu Dhabi. As the first in the region, the strategic intent of the program will be a building pillar for developing the talents in the UAE.
PwC's first Mini MBA Programme will run from April 20th to June 29th, 2013 at the UAE Academy campus in Abu Dhabi, with plans to expand the offering across the region. The sessions will take place over a 3 month period with over100 classroom hours. To accommodate working schedules, courses will be conveniently held on Saturdays and Sunday evenings.
The programme covers nine specially designed modules, including Business Breakdown & Map, Corporate & Business Strategy, People Management, Management Skills, Marketing, Leadership & Negotiation, Accounting Basics & Financial Management, Project Management & Business Processes and a final course to link it all together. The class sizes are designed for small groups to maintain a personalized approach. At the end of the programme all participants will receive a PwC certificate of completion.
