Practical ideas from the best brains in Business

A sharp, jargon-free guide to the core curriculum of an MBA program, MBA in a Book shows how to master the big ideas of business and use them in a practical way to build and enhance career success.

From the Inside Flap:

The best minds in business—at your service

· The profit zone and how to tell if a business is in one.
· The skill of turning an idea or invention into a product that solves a problem for a market.
· Merging the need of business to produce and grow with the environment so they are both sustained.

· And much more.
