MBA Business Strategy Notes

0 ratings


If you're academically inclined and you want to learn a lot about business, you could learn an entire MBA worth of information just by reading.

The problem is you think you need to apply to university, enrol, watch lectures, do assignments and pay a fortune to get an MBA. But if you don't need a certificate (yet), you really don't need to do all of that. You just need to read.

What do you need to read? Some good summaries to get you started with the key concepts, some great textbooks, and all the best journal papers that illustrate the lessons and let you dive deeper for a better understanding.

Anyone who can read this page can learn the basics everything an MBA graduate learns in just a few hours per topic. And if you want to read further into the texts, a few more days will do the job.

Each of these notes bundles represents an MBA course module costing £1500-£3000 depending on where you study. So, you're getting £3000 of knowledge value for only £30.

Each of these notes bundles (except the MBA Project) represents a 10-credit course module (with 100 hours of course time) condensed into about 10,000 words.

That means you're able to get all the vital information from 100 hours of Master's level (Level 7) university level course time in a few hours of reading these notes!

My MBA from a well-respected UK university was 13 topics and a project, which means you could learn the key information of my whole MBA in no time, and immerse yourself in the textbooks and readings over the following months.

This means you can learn everything you need to feel confident in strategic discussions with top leadership figures, to take the plunge in starting your own business, or to get ahead on your study for a future MBA.

This MBA knowledge gives you a huge boost in life, no matter what purpose you have in mind.
