Get Up to 90% Off! This MBA in a Box - Business Lessons from a CEO course at Udemy is jam-packed with the same useful information and real-life case studies MBA graduates acquire throughout their training in top-tier business schools. We have even tried to make it more interactive by preparing a gamebook for you. Yeah, that’s right! Learning business and finance need not be boring!


This is the only online course you need to acquire the business acumen to:

  • Start up your own business
  • Grow your existing venture
  • Take your career to the next level
  • Get promoted and apply managerial, financial, marketing, decision-making and negotiation skills in the real business world
  • Have an all-around view of why some companies (and people) succeed when doing business and why others do not

The gamebook will test what you have learned and will simulate a real-world environment in which your decisions as a business executive will have real monetary consequences for a company. Can you think of any better way to reinforce what you have learned?

An exciting journey from A-Z.

If you are a complete beginner and you know nothing about business or finance, don’t worry at all! In each of the five main modules of the course, we will start from the very basics and will gradually build up your knowledge. The course contains plenty of real-life examples and case studies that make it easy to understand.
