Interactive modules to learn key business metrics.
Certification to demonstrate your mastery.
MBTN, or Management by the Numbers, is a self-paced, online learning system with a focus on business metrics and analytics.  MBTN offers over 50 modules for Marketing, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Strategy, HR, Accounting, and Statistics. Each module consists of a straight-forward tutorial and four multi-question problem sets. Our goal is to help you learn business through practical problem-solving experience.
Work your way up MBTN’s corporate ladder from Mail Room Clerk to CEO by completing our modules. Practice the tutorials and problem sets until you’ve mastered the topic. Receive explanations of how answers are calculated if you don’t get it right in two tries. But next time you’ll have new values.  We want to make sure you really understand it.
Once you’ve completed particular sets of modules, you may sit for a certification exam. Pass the exam (80% or higher) and receive your MBTN Academy certificate. If you don’t pass it the first time, try again in 7 days. MBTN certificates distinguish you from your peers by demonstrating essential knowledge. And best of all, there’s no extra charge!
