4.0 von 5 Sternen Great B-school refresher 1. August 2005
Von Avid business book reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a business school refresher b/c it thoroughly covers the all the topics. You'll find yourself saying "oh, yes, I remember that!"

The approach throughout the book is to highlight "the big questions" around each topic, then discuss them in detail. I've found this a great way to hit the just high points when I want to refresh myself and to have a more in-depth read when I want more.

It has become a great desk reference for me. A co-worker just finishing an MBA has also read it and found it a great complement to his MBA program.

While all the chapters are well-written and full of information, the chapter on macroeconomics was outstanding. I was surprised to learn in the book how few of the top business schools teach macroeconomics. Fortunately, the book covers it well.

Great book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gaining an MBA Skillset 8. Februar 2011
Von K. Newcomer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
A traditional MBA has many electives, but most have the same core classes such as Macro and Micro economics, finance, accounting, Organizational Behavior, Strategy, and Marketing. I purchased this book to continue learning and as a companion to my MBA program.

The chapters I enjoyed the most were Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting. I find these skills are in high demand and understanding and being able to carry on a conversation about the topics are critical, especially in any kind of leadership or management position. As you engage with upper management who run these programs you can make more contributions when you understand the basics of these theories, ratios, metrics, and management techniques.

The author put together great Snapshot Applications which help the reader gain more insight on the topic and seeing it in a real word scenario; also I found a lot of great graphs and charts to help explain certain techniques and some concepts.

The book is organized into five parts where Part 1 is the The Big MBA Picture, Part 2 is the Strategic and Tactical MBA, Part 3 is The Functional MBA, Part 4 is the Organizational and Leadship MBA, and Part 5 is the MBA Toolbox. Contributors for the book come from top universities, but a diverse set of universities and colleges (not just Ivy League). Highly recommended for people looking at an MBA program, those going into one, those who have finished, and for anyone that wants a good toolset around understanding what it takes to run a business.

I recommend this book along with The Project Savvy Project Manager by Gary Heerkens and Managing by the Numbers by Kremer, Rizzuto, and Case.

4.0 von 5 Sternen good intro to b-school for the non-MBA 14. März 2008
Von SDB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Good intro to b-school for the non-MBA person or for someone who is looking to enter b-school soon. Also, can be used as a little refresher for long-time graduates, but don't expect to be able to run a business simply by reading this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great guide to the business school agenda 5. September 2011
Von Robert Kirk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was a great look at some of the best business schools and the classes they focus on. I thought the premise of dealing with the most taught subjects and then focusing on high level, general topics was a great idea for the book. Well written and there were many great ideas from the multiple contributors you simply learn from the best of the best. I am seriously thinking about going back to school to get my MBA and this book has inspired me to learn more about some of these subjects that aren't my strengths. In summary, this book is a great reference guide to some high level, graduate school concepts and it's well worth your time to read.
