CEO-Read endorsement

A couple of days ago, I wrote about applying to Harvard. Today, I am going to give you an alternative. Consider saving yourself the $120,000 and buying MBA in a Day by Steven Stralser instead. I would never say that you can replace two years of classroom instruction with a 298 page book, but I like the book. You will find the theory they are teaching in B-school today. You will practical examples. I like it as a primer and that is the point. Stralser explains in the preface why he wrote the book:

"Every semester, in addition to the traditional MBA students who had taken time off from their corporate life to enroll in the MBA Program, I would find one or two students who were clearly "outliers" to these mainstream corporate types- for example, a physician, an attorney, an executive director from non-profit organization, or a small business owner or entrepreneur...I also realized that for every physician, attorney, architect, or entrepreneur who can take the time to enroll in an MBA program, there are many more who are pressed for time and focused on the day-to- day challenges of running a successful practice, operating a small business, or launching a new venture but who would benefit from learning the essential principles and concepts found in the coursework of an MBA program. It is for these successful- albeit time-sensitive- professionals that this book is written.
