アメリカMBAトップ10校で教えられている内容の精髄をまとめ、全米で20万部を売り上げた『The Ten-Day MBA』の邦訳。マーケティングやアカウンティング、ファイナンス、オペレーション、経済学、戦略といった定番の科目に加え、組織行動、定量分析、そして比較的新しい倫理の科目が取り上げられている。 エッセンスとはいいながら、ただ理論のみを羅列するのではなく、アメリカMBAで取り上げられがちな企業の事例を交えながら、わかりやすく各種理論をひもといている。P&Gやホールマーク、ゼロックスなどの事例は、MBAホルダーにとってはおなじみの内容だろう。 もちろん、MBAホルダーが血のにじむような努力で頭に叩き込んだ、大量のケーススタディに比べると、本書の内容はほんのおさわり程度にすぎない。だが、内容のおさらいをするのには十分だろうし、これ ...more

I have my MBA and this book is a great reference source. Courses are taught in an MBA program in a way that feels like you are trying to drink from a fire hydrant. There is so much information thrown at you that retention is at a minimum. You do not need an MBA to read or understand this book. Written for a broad audience with differing academic backgrounds.

It was a great quick overview of MBA studies. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to get closer to understanding how business works.

As I was reading the book, I thought to myself, is this boring because it's MBA stuff, or am I bored because I'm an MBA and I already studied this stuff? Conclusion: it's both.

You can't make MBA material interesting. I've written elsewhere that there are just certain required courses you have to take (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/201407...) and only a few that are really inspiring. And if you want to take those inspiring classes, just take them. Skip getting the expensive degree.

this book is a must read for those of you who still deciding whether to take a MBA degree or not. here Steven describe the 10 main thing that you'll learn on MBA classes. don't expect something deep inside this book. all the chapter in this book only talk about a topic in general. overall this book is excelent there is a lot of diagram and real world case study. so it will be easy to read

The best business book I have ever read! This book covers the essence of a MBA atthe world's top universities like Harvard and Stanford.Its content ranges from marketing to finance and even basic business law. Suitable for those wanting to pursue a MBA or even graduates who want to review what they have learnt in the fast-paced two year MBA course.

The Ten-Day MBA by Steven Silbiger is a book covering a typical MBA course in just one book. At least that is what the author believes although an MBA is probably a bit more exhaustive.

The Ten-Day MBA gives you an overview over the MBA components such as Marketing, Ethics, Accounting, Organizational Behavior, Quantitative Analysis, Finance, Operations, Economics and Strategy with which the author thinks that you would have a complete MBA. While the subjects themselves are well-written in a sense

A very interesting and inexpensive book about business-related concepts. I found it surprisingly easy to read, even if at first glance this is a book beyond my “comfort zone”(IT, data warehouses, etc.). A few references in the book are U.S. specifics (like laws) but you can easily map them to your country with little work.

A very practical book, it's well worth the time investment.

I read this book a few years ago, knowing almost nothing about the subject matter.

It's a great primer and survey, and the basic knowledge has served me well.

A surprisingly quick read, I got through it over some long subway rides.

Recommended for interested beginners.

Good Overview

This book helped me with some of the business jargon I hear, but it didn't give me so much insight that I would feel comfortable using that jargon in practice.

An excellent book that teaches the core principle of different department in a company!

Originally, I planned to pursue an MBA, but that changed over time. However, even if I don't plan an MBA anymore (I'm more geared towards pursuing an MA/PhD), this book is very useful to anyone who wants to understand business, is working, or is a business student, whether in college or grad school.

The chapters that I like in this books are Organizational Behavior, Marketing, and Quantitative Analysis.

Quite complementary to the "personal MBA" book. It is more technical and gives less examples.

This book is the best business school primer out there (although, there isn't much competition). Silbiger has brought the complexity of B-school courses down to a much more approachable level. However, when tackling this book, it helps if you have taken at least an introductory economics, finance, and accounting class. You will gain much more from the reading.

MBA in a nutshell !!
Who wouldn't want that?
The book is a masterpiece, providing the fundamentals of the MBA study in an easy way for readers with non-business study backgrounds.
A must have guide if you are willing to study to give you the main basics, or if you just like me want to know how things in business administration go.

I read this book as a software developer trying to better understand the business folks that I tend to build software for.

This book offers a really good introduction to terms and ideas that my clients just take for granted. I now feel better able to understand my coworkers and be able to accomplish my job as a result.

Very helpful in my studies for my MBA. Honestly it was a great reminder of what I learned for my bachelors but since forgot over the years. I will make sure to keep this book as a handy reference for economics and finance.
Kimberly
This is was a good overview of business principles. The writing is clear and the explanations various concepts are decent. Does it take the place of an MBA- probably not, as mastery of the concepts generally comes from discussion and practical experience. I do think is a good review of some of the classes that I have taken.
Rohit Amberker
This is a good refresher once in a while to ground yourself to the basic concepts / frameworks.
