Description

The same critical information top business schools teach
Based on Professor Stralser's popular seminar series, MBA in a Day? is specifically designed for the busy professional (physician, attorney, architect, nonprofit executive, etc.) or entrepreneur/small business owner, who needs to know about the "business-side" of their practice, organization or business. With comprehensive coverage of vital business topics, important concepts and proven strategies taught at top graduate schools, this handy book offers a complete business education without the hassle of enrolling in an MBA program. Divided into four sections covering management and policy; economics, finance, and accounting; marketing; and systems and processes; this straightforward guide is easy to navigate and simple to use. Packed with illustrative examples, helpful anecdotes, and real-world case studies, this commonsense guide covers everything busy professionals would learn at the very best business schools-if they only had the time.
