Junior MBA

One concern that most parents have is that teens are already burdened with school studies and the pressure to excel in exams and hence cannot make time for other activities or programmes. In order to circumvent this issue, our Jr. MBA programme has been specifically designed to integrate with the school curriculum. This programme is designed based on the mesh of entrepreneurial skills and competencies put through the framework of entrepreneurship life cycle. The accelerated co-curricular Jr. MBA programme encourages critical and innovative thinking abilities in teens. This goes a long way in enhancing the academic performance and overall development of the child – the future leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
