PROGRAM

The unique MINIBOSS program and methodology are the basis for a highly effective system of business education for children and teenagers.

MINIBOSS ACADEMIC PROGRAM

The MINIBOSS Academic Program is an 8-course educational program, and each course is covered within 1 academic year (9 months). The program is implemented as a staged learning of consecutive courses that cover 18 subjects of business and social studies: economics, finance, marketing, law, project management, organisational/HR management, business operations, strategy, communication, leadership, sociology, civics/government, history, geography, psychology, business ethics, innovation and entrepreneurship. The subjects are presented in a mixed form (e.g., history, economics, sociology and psychology, all in one lesson) that gives students a realistic and practical understanding of the world.


UNIQUE MINIBOSS STUDENT'S STUDY GUIDES:

  1. The basics of economics (MINIBOSS)
  2. Family Business (SUCCESSOR)
  3. Idea Generation (CREATOR)
  4. Market Research (MERCHANT)
  5. History of Business and Innovations (ENTREPRENEUR)
  6. Theory and Practice of Innovations (INVENTOR)
  7. Coaching, Communications and Networking (RHETOR)
  8. Professional Orientation and Career Mapping (PROFESSIONAL)

The academic program has 3 main elements:

BUSINESS THEORY in a game form
The foundation of the program is the weekend classes that are conducted in an interactive form, when students are encouraged to ask questions, think creatively and participate in team-based games. During each course each student develops 8 basic intellects to become "the full potential of the individual", and his/her practical abilities to create business ideas and successfully implement them. Learning proceeds step-by-step from course to course, forming outstanding abilities in entrepreneurship.


The 8 intellects is the IP developed by the MINIBOSS Business School’s scientists, which identifies the need for a holistic education approach. The 8 intellects are: IQ, EQ, PhQ, CQ, MQ, XQ, TQ and SQ, and it is critical that all of them are being developed so that the students become well-rounded individuals.

BUSINESS INCUBATOR - creating startups end-to-end
The Program puts a strong focus on developing students’ creativity and the principle of learning by doing, which is the reason for each course to be based on the 12 types of practice (e.g., business games, team competitions). The main practical experience comes from creating real-life startups within the Business Incubator framework, which covers all steps from the initial generation of a business idea to registering a business, making sales, and finishing at the National Startup Championship.


Such a strong practical foundation aims to give students knowledge, skills, experience and confidence in generating creative ideas, and implementing them in real life.

INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, BUSINESS CAMPS, FESTIVALS and BUSINESS TOURS

A number of more intense (5 days +) practical learning experiences are organised for MINIBOSS students and their parents, which range from visiting international companies, developing particular skills (e.g., creativity), global networking and team-building among young leaders from different countries, to determining the best projects of the year at the Startup World Cup Championship.

ACADEMIC PLAN

The academic year (aligned with the academic program in mainstream schools), includes more than 900 academic hours of study and practice per annum, including 406 academic hours of the following mandatory elements:
