These curious times during CoVid-19 have helped focus on the design and the launch of a new-to-market

University. The MBA is completed in 12 months, over two parts – a half-way professional certificate from
Chartered Management Institute called the Certificate in Transformational Leadership (CTL), followed by
the next six months of dissertation study and a 12,000-word ‘capstone’ project to be awarded the MBA by
the UK’s York St John University.
