The MBA essentials programme is a 5-day programme designed to deliver an MBA style curriculum to parents of Junior MBA students. The essence of the programme is to teach MBA modules to parents with four learning goals:

  • To encourage parents to pursue entrepreneurial ventures
  • To further develop the financial acumen of parents
  • To allow for parents to connect with their respective families on business topics
  • To expand the horizons of parents beyond the geographical boundaries of Dubai

The MBA essentials programme is the creation of its founding teacher, Navin Valrani, Arcadia Education’s award-winning CEO, who was not only educated in the finest business schools in the world but who has also successfully led a number of companies across a variety of industries.
