Keen to start your own business? Not sure where to begin? There are so many hurdles and potential pitfalls. You don’t want to waste your time and money developing a business idea that doesn’t work. Escape the City’s Startup MBA brings together all the diverse aspects of start-up management in a single, targeted 5-day course that cuts through all the noise.
This is a real world MBA that doesn't break the bank. It is based on start-up best practice and real world examples. It is specifically designed for Escape members. It is jam-packed with up-to-date knowledge and advice. It is easy to be overwhelmed by information overload. This is the course we wish we had taken three years ago. Save yourself a lot of time and uncertainty having to figure everything out by yourself.
The course is taught by industry figures and entrepreneurs with demonstrated experience and expertise in the relevant start-up area. This is not an academic course - it is highly practical and is designed to tell you exactly what you need to know to start your business and help you avoid making costly mistakes.
Each intake will have 30 students. You will have the chance to work closely with a group of like-minded people. There will be homework, joint working sessions, and lots of recommended resources to support you after the course.

This is the course we wish we had taken three years ago when we escaped from management consulting to start Escape the City. We’ve spent a lot of time figuring things out for ourselves that we really could have learnt quite easily given the right opportunity. We have developed this course to help the next wave of corporate escapees stand a greater chance of building a successful start-up and not having to return to their jobs!
We hope you decide to join us on our first ever Startup MBA.
All the best,
