Fully updated and rewritten, the new edition of The Shorter MBA, a classic best-selling book, is now available in a new user-friendly, desktop format.

Most people cannot give up two years to study for a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), but the techniques that are taught for an MBA are invaluable. This practical, accessible book presents all the essential theory, practice and techniques taught to MBA students and is ideal for the busy executive. Above all, this is a practical book that covers everything needed to be commercially successful in business.

It is divided into three parts Personal Development, Management Skills and Business Development, and uses the latest research and business school studies to succinctly and clearly explain the key principles and practices of successful business.

“A unique book that covers the essential matters of business and management….It uses the language of the MBA & business school but does not go into the endless rhetoric of explaining which guru said what and why. I read this before embarking upon a series of business courses leading to an MBA, and it gave me a grounding in most, but not all, the areas covered in the course….I enjoyed reading the book and still refer to it occasionally; just to remind me of some of the basics. I can recommend it to anyone interested in a first book on this subject.”
