Do you want to broaden your business thinking and impact your career potential? The MBA Highlights programme develops your competence in key business areas such as strategic leadership, customer-centric business design, marketing and sales and financial accounting. If you have considered taking an Executive MBA, but the time is not quite right for such a long-term commitment, this is the programme for you.
The MBA Highlights programme is tailored for professionals who have limited time and are looking for a compact business acumen programme with a low threshold. You can either see it as a compact update in business thinking, but MBA Highlights also provides an ideal basis towards studying in the triple-crown accredited Hanken EMBA programme, as the content and the program fee are transferable into the full 2-year Hanken EMBA programme.
The main programme themes are strategic leadership, co-creation and customer-centric business design, self-leadership, peak performance and leading change, strategic marketing, service and relationship oriented sales as well as financial accounting.
The MBA Highlights programme is for executives, managers and experts - who want to make sure they work with the latest in management and leadership tools. Ideally with a minimum of three years of work experience and at least one year of leadership experience. High proficiency in English and at least a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent is also required.

The programme fee is 7 900 € (+ VAT) per participant.
All costs are included except personal travel costs. The programme modules are held at Hanken & SSE office in central Helsinki.
After completing MBA Highlights you receive a certificate of completion. The programme is not a degree programme as it is not an official MBA programme. The content and the programme investment of MBA Highlights are however transferable into the full 2-year triple-crown accredited Hanken Executive MBA programme.
Each module of the programme brings new knowledge and insights. Also, the opportunity to discuss the learnings with the other participants and how they would apply the insights into their contexts was really valuable for me. The exchange of experiences showed me how the problems I face on a daily basis are similar to the problems in totally different businesses. I would recommend the programme for both executives and young professionals. The opportunity to network and get perspectives from the other participants and learn from each other is a great joy.
The programme offered real-time perspectives and tools on how to navigate during and post these unprecedented times of Covid-19. A wider contextual reflection and group work with other students offered valuable external perspectives during every module. Having digital and marketing lenses on my day-to-day work, I really liked the comprehensive and holistic approach of the programme, covering the core functions and perspective of a modern business. During every module, I was able to draw concrete ideas and tools to apply to my daily work – on both operational and strategic level. I highly recommend MBA Highlights to everyone who wishes to challenge her/his thinking, get inspired by excellent teachers and expand ones toolbox with modern solutions.
I got new tools to develop our companys creative process as well as tools to understand customers and employees needs in a better way. Also, self-management and the methods of positive psychology gave me many practical improvement tools. I can definitely recommend the programme for every business leader who wants to improve her/his skills in modern business management and leadership.
Many interesting and valuable things are covered in the programme and the versatility was really inspiring. The distinguished lecturers brought new perspectives both to everyday work life and for the future. Our optimistic spirit throughout the programme was a positive surprise, considering the circumstances of the ongoing pandemic. I would recommend this programme, but everyone must dedicate the time and effort to get the most out of it.
