The exam is essay based. You will be given a case study and three weeks to prepare a written response with up to 2000 words. It is primarily based on course video content and additional reading is not necessary but may be helpful.
Is the exam mandatory?
Those not participating in the exam will receive a certificate with their CPD hours rather than an exam grade.
While there is not a specific module on the course dedicated to Digital Marketing, Mark does touch on different aspects of this during the core MBA marketing subjects. The Mini MBA is designed to model the traditional content of the top business schools.
Students can submit questions at any stage during their study about the latest class and readings. Mark then answers all of these questions during the Q&A session which can also be accessed on demand or as a podcast immediately after it concludes.
Mark will answer most, if not all, of the questions during the session. The Q&A can be accessed on demand afterwards.
Most students take around 2-3 hours per week to complete the Mini MBA in Marketing.
