The MBA IQ Score is the only measurement of its type, giving you a measurement of your overall business knowledge, as well as your knowledge in core areas.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
One of the key components of business success is measurement. How do you stack up? Where are you strong? Where do you need to improve?
A new program, the MBA IQ™, answers those questions, offering participants the opportunity to measure their business acumen while taking a course designed to provide a strong foundation in business principles, including vocabulary, core concepts and fundamental knowledge.
There are many courses and “mini MBA” programs, including those offered by colleges and universities, designed to give a student an overview of business principles. However, the MBA IQ offers one of the few MBA preparation curricula focusing on the major core areas of business that are the foundation of MBA programs.
Where the program truly stands apart is with the one-of-a-kind MBA IQ Score, which makes the MBA IQ program the first to actually calculate one’s level of business knowledge. Just as a FICO score indicates one’s financial health, the MBA IQ Score is an accurate indicator of one’s business knowledge. The MBA IQ Score is given as an overall score as well as a score in each of the 12 foundational areas of business:
•General Management, Leadership and Strategy
•Quality and Process Management
•Human Resources Management
•Corporate Control, Law, Ethics and Governance
•Decision Sciences and Managerial Economics
Upon completion of the course, students receive a MBA IQ Knowledge Transcript, which outlines their scores in each of the core areas, as well as the overall score.
“The MBA IQ Score is the only measurement of its type, giving you a measurement of your overall business knowledge, as well as your knowledge in core areas,” said MBA IQ founder Devi Vallabhaneni, a Harvard MBA. “This provides participants with information about their strengths as well as areas in which they may need some additional development.”
Unlike other programs, the MBA IQ course offers a wide variety of tools to help students master the MBA Lexicon including 12 learning modules, more than 134 reading assignments and 1,000 flashcards, daily lessons, workbooks, assessments and quizzes, along with eight to 12 hours of online instruction.
Additionally, the MBA IQ program is offered to companies, individuals and international students.
“Even those not considering an MBA can benefit from the program,” said Vallabhaneni.
“Our course can help you master the vocabulary and concepts of business, as well as develop strong business acumen through an engaged learning format,” said Vallabhaneni. “If you do choose an MBA program, the MBA IQ will help you have the confidence to compete and succeed in the classroom.”
Many “mini MBA” courses can run hundreds or even thousands of dollars. The MBA IQ program is only $195. For more information, visit http://www.mbaiq.com.
About MBA IQ
MBA IQ believes that:
•There needs to be a common global “business lexicon”
- Standards matter and having a means to assess business knowledge will enhance overall productivity
•Business education should be accessible and affordable… it’s a right not a privilege
MBA IQ was founded in 2010 by Devi Vallabhaneni and Melissa Hayes, both Harvard Business School MBAs. The duo developed a unique approach to preparing students and prospective students for the rigors of a Masters of Business Administration program by teaching them the MBA Lexicon.
