What is BatteryMBA?

In November 2020, B.A launched its BatteryMBA, an advanced Battery Course to help train the next generation of leaders in the battery sector. The BatteryMBA offers battery enthusiasts with technical backgrounds a chance to develop their business, entrepreneurship, coding, and industry-related skills. This course meets the growing demand emerging from the battery sector and is expected to attract a large number of participants.

When will the first course cycle start? 

The first cycle of our BatteryMBA will start in December 2020 and run until March 2020.

Why is BatteryMBA cheaper than comparable programmes and what is included in the price?

Battery Associates, the platform leading the BatteryMBA, is committed to providing affordable educational content related to batteries and to helping members of the battery sector transition into the industry. We believe everyone deserves the right to improve their professional career options. B.A developed the BatteryMBA to make this a reality for battery enthusiasts.

How does BatteryMBA differ from a traditional MBA?

The BatteryMBA shares a few important components with a traditional MBA, including a strong emphasis on the access to an exceptional network of leaders.    

Unlike a traditional MBA however, our BatteryMBA does not require the financial or time  investment that tends to prevent the pursuit of one’s career amelioration. Unlike traditional MBAs, our lecturers were carefully selected to meet the current and most pressing challenges in the battery sector, and their expertise purposefully represents a wide range of sectors, from the automotive to the mining industry. 

Because our programme is inherently decentralised and global, participants and presenters in the course are located across all continents (excepting Antarctica).  We also want to emphasise that the BatteryMBA is not a Masters of Business Administration.
