The Ten Day MBA by Steven Silbiger
After spending 5 years on a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and 5 more on a master's in Computer Science, I swore that I would never set foot on a college campus again. As I moved into leadership roles, I found myself becoming more and more immersed in the crazy world of business management. I began to wonder if I needed a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) degree to keep moving up the ranks. This book has been a life-saver for me. The author has distilled the core topics from the curriculums of America's top business schools into ten easily digestible chapters: Marketing, Ethics, Accounting, Organizational Behavior, Quantitative Analysis, Finance, Operations, Economics, Strategy, and MBA Mini-Courses. An MBA may still be in my future at some point, but for now this book has equipped me with a fundamental understanding of business concepts and terminology. I've owned this book for over ten years now and still refer to it once or twice a year. Highly recommended.
