Description

From the BBC:

"Their tutor uses the Internet as a resource - partly for sources of information, but also, through e-mail and chat software, to allow fast delivery of essays and his comments on them. The tutor, Chris Sivewright, believes that in some cases it is a better method than classroom-based course work"

- BBC Website 1998

“David says he was not an exceptional scholar. “Mr Sivewright knows exactly how to pass exams.”

David Mason, student,The Times – 28 January, 1990

“This is probably the shortest time in which anyone has passed. It is quite exceptional.

Peter Stanbrook, Head of Education at the AEB, The Oxford Mail, 25th Jauary,1990

****                                        ****                                ****                                     ****                                 ****

This course has been updated and considerably extended. Expect to spend about 150 hours to complete the course and gain the Oxford Diploma. (Business Fundamentals, pre-MBA)

This is how you will be prepared for the MBA:

SEVEN STAGES (One extra has been added since the Preview video)

1. Business and Economic vocabulary. This to include business concept evaluation and business fundamentals.

2. Preparing yourself for MBA entry - what is required? How can you impress?

3. MBA content and mindset. Business fundamentals

4. Sole trader case study - extended. This includes detailed homework.

5. Businesses in 2021 - more evaluation. Including case studies

6. Office environment - reducing stress in the office

7. Story telling - what can be learnt.

WARNING:

MBA students learn as much - probably more - from the work they are set and the people they interact with as they do from the lecturer.  This course is no exception. You are set homework right from the beginning and you are expected to share your results in the Q/A section - and to comment on the work of others. This means that there is strong Instructor involvement in terms of responses in Q/A.

Expect to have your ideas challenged! This is NOT just a load of lectures you whizz through and print out a certificate with 'MBA' on it.

Expect to be extended - ideal preparation for the MBA!

There are 19,000 students currently enrolled. So potentially there are resources from 156 countries (countries where students are from) as well as the various textbooks included with this course!

Importantly this course is current as at April 2021.

This is a serious, evolving, course. It WILL prepare you for the MBA - but as part of the 'preparation' you are set homework. Doing the homework undeniably helps prepare....

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"Dear Mr. Bankes I don't know how to thank you for this course. I have nothing but admiration for you, your presentation skills, and your teaching capabilities. this course made me shift my mindset, do researches, and brainstorm. I'm sorry that I'll temporarily stop moving forward in the course, but that is because of my job requirements needing more focus. I promise as soon as I have the time, I will come back very effectively."

- Mohammed Nihad

"A really good, short and brilliantly-created course. Focuses on both theoretical and practical learning. The first few lectures helped me easily understand the factors affecting and business and as one of the lecture said "Shifting of the mindset", it has successfully been able to do that. Looking at business the way mentioned in the course has widen my perspective and has certainly helped me in understanding this practical subject. The last section is beautifully scripted. Yes! "Scripted". Professor Sivewright uses a really attractive way to make us understand the financial impact of Brexit. Overall, a really engaging course."

Tanush Sharma

"This course is AMAZING, I am blessed to say that I have enrolled on this course! Sir Chris replies IMMEDIATELY to all questions and comments! Although I can't comment on his resources due to the device I have, his resources are POWERPACKED with so much useful information. The links and further reading sources give recent and latest news and information. The lectures are about 3 and a half minutes meaning that it takes the time to boil an egg, this is EXTREMELY CONVENIENT for people who give their maximum effort for a short span of time. I find it easier to concentrate, focus, grasp and fully understand each lectures. Thank You Sir Chris, You have helped me a lot as you've also enrolled me on two other courses completely for free. I'll always remember this help, and this is the BEST course on Udemy for Business! Thank You!!! Kind Regards, Kris Sivakrishan Sooriya."

"This was a very good course for beginners. Hopefully, there will be more intermediate and advanced courses in the future. The tutor was very clear throughout the lectures with good explanation and diagrams. The video and sound quality throughout the course was excellent. Going into detail on certain topics, the bits I enjoyed the best from my point of view where the practical bit. I would have liked the tutor to go through say one of the tough questions he set in this course in full so that I can then go through the rest of the questions with a lot more confidence (like a template I can use). I found this method very beneficial in answering mathematical questions, which I did many years ago. I could then use this in my questions going forward. during this course, I asked the tutor a general question in one of my othere courses and he came back to me within 24 hours, which is excellent. Overall, I highly recommend this course to all of you and if the standard is the same with his other courses, I don't think you will be disappointed. Many thanks."

"Well as always the course is very organised, the teacher is very responsive, especially the teaching materials that he send to the announcement section is very useful to progress during the lessons. I really recommend to take part in his courses."

Now I am looking next year to doing A'Level in Economics. With doing these udemy courses, I have got my appetite back. I have gone through the 7 in 1 course of yours once and will look to expanding on that. The only annoying bit I find is these egg timer introductions at the beginning of your videos. Just out of interest how much of your course covers to A'Level? Thanks again for wonderful lectures.

In really liked this course. It teaches business studies in a different approach that we used to in the school. It's more easy to understand and implement in real-life.
