Our Philosophy

The best leaders learn by doing. Our immersive and dynamic simulations provide real, hands-on experience in the two core areas — business acumen and people management — to provide the foundation for success in business, no matter the industry or function.

Business Acumen

Leaders at every level need proficiency in the tools of accounting and finance to measure the value a business is creating and to tell if an organization’s current financial strategies are enabling — or harming — its long-term ability to thrive.

People Management

The one constant in every business situation is the people — whether you are leading a team or collaborating with external partners. By participating in interactive simulations and group discussions, you will practice the skills real managers need to succeed.

The Invited MBA delivers the most critical elements of an MBA curriculum to set you up for success.Through rigorous, interactive simulations, you’ll gain practical experience in reading and understanding financial statements.You’ll uncover your personal management style, fine-tune effective feedback, and practice managing teams.

From Bjorn Billhardt, Invited MBA Founder and CEO of Abilitie, an award-winning leadership development organization: “We now know that all learning is social, and… we still need to get together, [albeit digitally,] and interact socially to enable growth.”

“Digital upstarts pitch alt-MBAs to learners in a hurry. A new breed of education company is challenging traditional business schools.”

“Because of its focused curriculum and experiential learning model, the Invited MBA stands alone as a high-value and dynamic virtual learning program. Perhaps its most important strength is the opportunity it provides for rising leaders to learn from and connect with other professionals from around the world.”

Published in Nerdwallet and distributed to The Washington Post, The Seattle Times, The Houston Chronicle, and more.

“The Invited MBA offers a 12-week program that includes live virtual sessions, team business competitions, study groups and online happy hours.”
