9780061998539: The Curriculum: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master of Business Arts

From the mind of the ultimate corporate gunslinger comes this no-nonsense, real-world Curriculum, designed to augment—if not replace—the more traditional path to achieving mastery of the business universe. Conquer this sharp, practical and often amusing course of study and save $250,000 of wasted business school tuition. 

Unlike those august, Ivy-encrusted factories that churn out masterful business administrators, The Curriculum will teach you the art of business, employing a smart, tactical battle plan that will prove infinitely more awesome as you make your way in the world.  

We begin, in the Core Curriculum, with the acquisition and maintenance of Power. Included are such essentials as Not Appearing Stupid (an early career requirement), Fabricating A Sustainable Business Personality, and the arts of Management and Selling.

The Advanced Curriculum hones the skills that are required to seize Success by the throat and shake it until valuable prizes fall out of its pockets, including fundamentals on Strategic Thinking, Self-Branding, mastering Electronic Communications, and dealing with Crazy People.

Tutorials and Electives, which students may pursue as their interest or discretion advises, include lessons on Giving an Effective Presentation, Business Drinking, and the Care and Feeding of Ultra-Senior Officers.

Lavishly enhanced with numerous charts, graphs, and other illuminating business illustrations, and backed up by years of study from Mr. Bing’s proprietary research organization (The National Association of Serious Studies), The Curriculum will occupy a place of pride on any bookshelf dedicated to the study of business, how it works, and how it can be used against those who don’t know how it works.

Product Description:

From celebrated corporate satirist Stanley Bing, a tongue-in-cheek curriculum—with real world case studies—for the young entrepreneur looking to stay out of debt and save thousands of dollars spent on traditional business school.

Over the past decade, students across America have become slaves to debt, paying thousands upon thousands of dollars for the privilege of a college degree. For those considering grad school, Stanley Bing says save your money. With The Curriculum, the preeminent business anthropologist of the age offers the most comprehensive, useful, and inexpensive Master of Business Administration curriculum in the history of the discipline.

Bing’s core curriculum and extensive elective courses provide any aspiring entrepreneur with the knowledge and know-how he needs to get ahead without spending $100K and wasting two years in boring classrooms with academics out of touch with the real world. The Curriculum is based on actual workplace experience and interviews with seasoned business leaders who offer pungent, relevant information, insight, and wisdom students can really use. In addition, students can log onto a companion website where they can file exams, answer essay questions, and meet a community of like-minded thinkers eager to acquire the practical knowledge and essential skills they actually need to succeed.

From the Back Cover:

The Only Business School You'll Ever Need
