Roadmap MBA

Business education supporting social change

Our mission is making business education accessible for 5 billion people.

For many years business education has been out of reach for regular people, particularly those from under-privileged and under-represented backgrounds. Nearly half the world’s population lives on less than $6 a day, making business education impossible to reach.

We believe that it shouldn’t matter where you grow up or what your financial background is on deciding if you can access information to help you build a better life for yourself.

We have built something which gives the complete roadmap to grow your business or career as a low cost practical alternative to a traditional MBA.

We are on a mission to help people around the world build a better life for themselves, creating an accessible platform for communities to thrive and celebrate together.

Accessible does not simply mean free

  • Barriers to traditional business education include:
  • • Cost
  • • Time
  • • Previous academic qualifications
  • • Physical location
  • • Language
  • • Overwhelm (too much choice)
  • • Lack of web accessibility for users with different access needs
  • • Employer unwilling / unable to pay
  • • Not knowing where to start (or what to learn)
  • • Previous bad experiences of education
  • • Fear of exams or tests
  • … plus many more.
  • Roadmap MBA tackles all of these, completely rethinking business education and training.

  • Alternative MBAs are a category of business education created by private sector companies who believe they can provide a better service than traditional university courses.

    Roadmap MBA is an alternative MBA business course which provides the real world skills to help you grow a business or progress your career. This is a private sector business course and not associated or accredited by any university or third party or imply any level of learning equivalent to an OfQal qualification.

  • Nearly half the world lives on less than $6 a day. We believe in supporting millions of people who otherwise do not have access to traditional forms of business education.

  • We love education in all forms. We love universities. We love business schools. We love people being able to access information to build a better life for themselves. We hate people being excluded or unable to access this support.

  • If you want an accredited degree course that is not what the Roadmap alternative MBA offers. If you need the accredited degree there are lots of excellent options out there. The skills you will learn from the Roadmap MBA will still help you whichever course you do and also throughout your career once you graduate.
