What is The MBA IQ?

It is an online course designed to (1) improve your MBA lexicon, (2) prepare you for the MBA classroom and (3) determine if an MBA is right for you.

 

Who will benefit the most from The MBA IQ?

We believe individuals who meet at least one of the following criteria will benefit the most:

  • People with non-business backgrounds (i.e., liberal arts, engineering, IT, military, or non-profit)
  • People who have been out of school for a long time and who want to know their strengths and weaknesses in all areas of business.
  • People who want to be confident in the classroom
  • People who want to focus on career exploration, networking, and/or entrepreneurship without sacrificing academics and grades.
  • International MBA applicants who want to demonstrate their proficiency in business English.
  • People who want to get a leg up on case analysis.
  • People who want to get the most out of their MBA investment.

 

How is The MBA IQ unique?

It is the only comprehensive MBA classroom prep tool that addresses all core areas of business operations. It is an active learning tool designed to guide your knowledge development. You will also receive an MBA IQ Score, which you can highlight in your resume and MBA applications.

 

Why is the MBA IQ priced at only USD $195?

With so many features and rich content, The MBA IQ can be easily priced at 5x to 10x what it costs for a single training course. We believe that quality education is a right and not a privilege and should be accessible to all who want to learn. In other words, we believe accessibility through affordability.

 

What is the MBA IQ Knowledge Transcript? With whom should it be shared?

The MBA IQ Knowledge Transcript is your performance summary report across the 12 Learning Modules and the 134 Sub-Modules. It should be shared with anyone you want to work with as you develop your education and career path. Examples include your manager, supervisor, human resources department, recruiters and hiring managers, and business schools.

 

How does The MBA IQ compare to the GMAT?

The admission tests for business schools (e.g., GMAT, GRE, and CAT in India) focus on critical thinking, reasoning, logic, reading comprehension, writing, and mathematics. The MBA IQ focuses on the subject matter covered in an MBA program and in all functional areas of business such as Marketing, Operations, Accounting, Finance, and eight additional Learning Modules. Our focus is to help you prepare for the MBA classroom by mastering the MBA lexicon.

 

How does The MBA IQ help me?

  • Master the MBA lexicon
  • Prepare for the MBA Classroom
  • Gain the confidence to succeed
  • Obtain the foundational business skills required for success in the classroom
  • Determine if an MBA is right for you

 

I’m not sure if I want to earn an MBA degree. Will The MBA IQ still be helpful to me?

Yes, think of The MBA IQ as a precursor to an MBA – the course covers all the topics addressed in business school and will help you determine if an MBA is the right path for you. Even if you never earn an MBA, the material covered on The MBA IQ is relevant to every function in a company in any industry in any country.

 

Should I complete The MBA IQ before or after taking the GMAT?

You can take The MBA IQ at any point in your MBA application process, but we recommend you take it before the GMAT as it can help you determine if an MBA is right for you. To obtain the ultimate benefit, take The MBA IQ well before you start your MBA course work to maximize your classroom learning time and to become productive in homework, case studies, special projects, and exams.

 

Is The MBA IQ still applicable to my career and me if I live outside the United States?

The MBA IQ is geography-agnostic and industry-agnostic. In other words, it doesn’t matter where you live or in which industry you work. The knowledge covered in The MBA IQ pertains to anyone in any company, in any industry, and in any country because business skills are universal.

 

Can I get a discount if I already have a copy of the publication What’s Your MBA IQ?

We suggest you ‘pay it forward’ by giving your existing copy to a friend or colleague. Each purchase of The MBA IQ course comes with a workbook. No discounts are given to previous purchasers of the book.

 

What are the payment methods?

For individual orders, we accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. For corporate orders (10 people or more), we accept credit cards as well as checks, bank drafts, or wire transfers.

Your credit/debit card statement will read ‘APBM, NFP’ for your MBA IQ transaction.

 

Can I get a refund after I have paid to take the course?

There are no refunds, full or partial, after payment is accepted and course registration is completed.

 

How long will it take to complete The MBA IQ? 

Once you purchase The MBA IQ, you are provided with 60 days to complete the entire program. It may take you less, and we encourage you to finish in whatever timeframe you feel you can handle the program. Actual clock time for the entire program is approximately 8 to 12 hours.

 

Can I pick which of the 12 Learning Modules to begin with?

Everyone goes through The MBA IQ in the same order, so you are unable to skip modules and go back to them at a later time.

 

If I do not finish within 60-days, can I extend the completion deadline?

Yes, you can extend the timeframe by another 60 days for $195.

 

How do I discuss The MBA IQ on my resume and job/business school interviews?

Your MBA IQ score is a means for you to differentiate your skills on your resume or through interviews – you should use it when discussing the skills you bring to the job opportunity or to your MBA candidacy. See sample resume.

 

How will The MBA IQ help me be a better leader?

In order to be an effective leader, you need both soft skills and hard skills, which can be acquired through The MBA IQ. Focus on developing the hard skills now through The MBA IQ so that you can spend more time during your MBA to perfect your leadership style.

 

How do I discuss my MBA IQ Score on my LinkedIn?

LinkedIn is a great place to share your MBA IQ Score and articulate how it differentiates you.
