Queen's University is offering a new 'mini' qualification aimed at giving would-be entrepreneurs a crash-course in business.

The William J Clinton Leadership Institute is launching the course this week, which is being sponsored by Allstate.

The new qualification is a five-day scheme taking in a range of business skills, including leadership, finance, marketing and sales.

Anne Clydesdale, director of the William J Clinton Leadership Institute, said: "This programme fills a vital gap in the market place - delivering a highly impactful grounding for the essentials of management and leadership in today's business world."

John Healy, managing director of Allstate NI, said the "mini-MBA will equip participants with the skills necessary to navigate the challenges businesses face now and in the future" and will "provide the skills needed to fast-track careers".
