COURSE INFORMATION

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

naMBA is an eight-week online leadership course founded in 2021 by Alicia McKay. It provides a safe space to challenge the status quo, learn new perspectives on leadership and connect with other ambitious leaders who are passionate about making meaningful change.

Not an MBA has transformed the lives and work of hundreds of leaders across New Zealand and Australia from government, business and NFPs. 

 

Enrolment is limited to 50 students per intake.

We use a digital course platform to host our video curriculum and supplementary resources, and hold weekly 3 hour learning sprints on Zoom to facilitate action learning and discussion amongst the group.

All students are required to complete eight practical assignments, applying what they've learned to change the way they work immediately.

TIME AND MONEY

naMBA is a commitment of approximately 5-8 hours per week across the course of the programme.

This includes watching the video curriculum, reading You Don't Need An MBA, engaging in learning sprints and completing assignments. 

 

Enrolment fees are $3,699 including GST per student.

Fees must be paid up-front and can be paid by credit card or invoice. To request an invoice, email info@aliciamckay.co.nz.

“In this moment, we need leaders more than ever. But as Alicia McKay helps us understand, waiting two years for a piece of paper isn’t required to make a difference. Start where you are and start now.”

- Seth Godin

Founder of alt MBA, best-selling author of 'Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us'

Learning Approach

Not an MBA is quite different from other executive education programmes. All things point to action, with lots of space for discussion and debate amongst your community.

We structure our programmes to inspire curiosity, challenge and creativity and ask our students to do rather than memorise.

There's no such thing as a stupid idea at naMBA, and we learn as much from each other as we do from the course content.
