The Palgrave Student Companions offer undergraduates an innovative and highly designed one-stop print resource that provides essential information about the subject - and the course - they've chosen to study. Each one addresses the core components of study at degree level, covering basic study skills specific to the subject, key terms and concepts, influential theorists and theories, major studies and methodological approaches, comprehensive overviews of what to expect from the course and the most common and popular topic areas and modules, lots of guidance regarding further reading, useful websites to visit, etc. At once friendly and authoritative in tone, the aim is to support the student throughout their degree. They encourage the reader to think about study skills alongside the substantive content of their course, offer guidance on module and career choices, and act as an invaluable source book and reference that they can return to time and again. The format of the books offers the multiple access points, cross-referencing, snappy presentation and web guidance that will appeal to a new generation of students - while still offering the stamp of academic quality.
The MBA Companion gives the student everything they need between two covers. It tells them what to expect from their MBA and how to get the most out of their time studying. It also serves as an excellent reference book which can be referred to again and again during their degree. With contributions from some of the leading experts this will give students a great head start.

Sharyn Roberts, Director of MBA Programmes, Australian Graduate School of Management, Australian School of Business.
The MBA Companion is a practical and realistic book that introduces students to the key skills needed to do well in an MBA or business masters degree. I am sure that students who have mastered the material covered in the Companion will find the process of studying towards their masters degree much easier, and more effective. The Companion aims to help students understand what is expected, and how to meet expectations. It also covers how to manage the high levels of stress that can cause students to perform poorly or, worse, drop out. I believe that this material is essential reading for anyone trying to do a demanding masters degree in business.
Anne Rouse, Associate Professor, IT Strategy and Strategic Management, Deakin University Business School, Australia
The ‘one stop shop’ nature of the material caught my attention. Everything together in one volume is a very powerful resource, and makes the book a ‘must buy’ for students and a ‘must recommend’ for administrators and lecturers.
Bob Gilliver, Programme Director MBA, University of South Australia
This draws together all the strands that we would put before students in the form of an integrated whole –academic, skills and career development are the 3 cornerstones of the programme.
