The 80 Minute MBA
Everything You'll Never Learn at Business School
By Richard Reeves and John Knell
It was once said that if Thomas Edison had gone to business school, we would all now be reading by larger candles. THE 80 MINUTE MBA helps you break free of stale and unoriginal thinking, and shows you a different way of doing business.
THE 80 MINUTE MBA is your short-cut to business brilliance. A traditional MBA is for either the time-rich, very wealthy or lucky few with a generous corporate sponsor. So what happens if you want to get a hit of high-quality business inspiration without spending two years back at school?
THE 80 MINUTE MBA is the gateway to fresh thinking, in less time than it takes a standard meeting to get past coffee and biscuits. The MBA-in-a-box book is old hat. Managers need the encouragement to think differently, not in the same straight lines. THE 80 MINUTE MBA is an injection of inspiration, creative thinking and dynamic approaches which will help you see the world of business differently.
