Originally, I planned to pursue an MBA, but that changed over time. However, even if I don’t plan an MBA anymore (I’m more geared towards pursuing an MA/PhD), this book is very useful to anyone who wants to understand business, is working, or is a business student, whether in college or grad school.The chapters that I like in this books are Organizational Behavior, Marketing, and Quantitative Analysis.
If you only can bring home one book about business education, then by all means take this one. From here you can get deeper into specific subject that your’re interested. By reading it all the way cover to cover will simply equip you with the essence of skill many MBAs from Top Business Schools have possessed.
This book is the best business school primer out there (although, there isn’t much competition). Silbiger has brought the complexity of B-school courses down to a much more approachable level. However, when tackling this book, it helps if you have taken at least an introductory economics, finance, and accounting class. You will gain much more from the reading.
I read this book as a software developer trying to better understand the business folks that I tend to build software for.This book offers a really good introduction to terms and ideas that my clients just take for granted. I now feel better able to understand my coworkers and be able to accomplish my job as a result.
