History of KidsMBA
Started as a bankruptcy lawyer, Professor Mark Watson-Gandy
was horrified to discover that many companies failed not because of a bad idea, but because of the basic mistakes. In fact, in the United Kingdom 50% of new companies do not survive the first year. Inspired by this fact, he took time off from his practice to write his first master's program in Corporate Financial Law and teach one of the best MBA programs in the world at Cass Business School.
Eventually he concluded that business skills are so fundamental to success in life, that they should be taught to children before they leave school. That's how KidsMBA program was born. Who is Professor Mark Watson-Gandy?
