The Lifelong MBA®


 About The MBA Academy 

We were established in 2007 to Make Business Accessible.

Through short videos, worksheets and live webinars, we give people access to the most up-to-date concepts normally taught on Masters in Business Administration courses (MBAs) by the world's leading business schools. 

Our aim is to help people and the businesses they work for use the latest management, strategic, leadership and business thinking to revinvent themselves for the future.

Our Mini-MBA Course Overview Video below explains a bit more about what we do. 



 Personal Reinvention

Our resources have been designed to empower and inspire you and give you a new and creative way of looking at business problems using the same approaches that are used by the most successful entrepreneurs and business visionaries.

As well as learning the essential business concepts, you will develop a new business mindset, empowering you to spot new opportunities and overcome challenges in a way that will propel you forward.


 Business Reinvention 

We believe that when a variety of people with different skillsets and perspective have access to the latest business concepts and a common set of frameworks and methodologies it can lead to the creation of novel and innovative ideas which can be used to help businesses rise to new levels of competitive performance.

  • Have more engaging conversations with their clients; 

  • Ask them more substantive questions;

  • Home in on the key commercial issues faced by a client; and

  • Align professional advice to client strategy.


 Our Passion

Everyone deserves an opportunity to participate in society and affordable business education can play a key role in making this a reality.

We believe that the core concepts taught on MBA courses by the world's leading business schools should be made widely available as this will help people to be more innovative and effective in their work which, in turn, will help to grow the economy. 

We are passionate about using business to combat poverty. We make our 'Business Empowerment Course' freely available to those on the fringes of society, who wish to re-engage with the world, become active citizens and find dignified jobs to provide for themselves and their families.  We work with the charity Sixty-One (www.sixty-one.orgto provide our 'Business Empowerment Course' to those who are currently serving prison sentences or who have criminal convictions and want to turn their lives around. 

The 'Business Empowerment Course' materials can be found on the Lifelong Learning page.

We are particularly interested in working alongside mentorship programmes, charities and churches who would like to explore using business education as a means to help people get back on their feet.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any ways in which we can work together.
