5.0 out of 5 stars Long-time customer and current evening PMBA student pleased with the new edition. Aug. 27 2012
By Mark McCaskill - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started with the second edition of the Ten Day MBA around the year 2000. I used both the second and third editions as a primer for business and MBA concepts over the last decade. At the time, I did not know if I would go back to get an MBA. Several years ago, I enrolled in an evening Professional MBA program at Radford University. I am about 80% complete with the PMBA; and I used the fourth edition to help consolidate my knowledge before moving on to the last few classes. Reading the fourth edition was a much richer experience, now that I had classroom experience to relate the material. It is true that you can use this book as a primer if you aren't going to get the MBA in the near term; and as a review if you are about to complete an MBA. I have purchased the second, third and fourth editions over the years, and read each of them with different purposes and goals in mind, depending on my situation. This book has never disappointed, no matter what stage of career and education I was in at the time. For the price, it is an amazing value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walk, Talk, Think Like An MBA Jan. 31 2013
By America's Legal Analyst - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is truly crammed with knowledge. Not just the jargon, but the real meat of a top MBA program. I am a practicing attorney and an analyst for a local (San Francisco) TV Station. I work with businesses every day an often assist them in strategic decisions. A few years back, I was recruited to teach "Law and Ethics for MBA's" at a local university. To my surprise, I found the subject matter of the MBA program inherently fascinating. I picked up the third edition of "Ten Day MBA" to get an overview of the other courses that my students were taking. It really helped me talk the language that my students and other faculty talked. I now teach a course that I designed myself, "Game Theory, Negotiation and Strategic Decision Making," and I have begun to work on a start-up with one of my former students. I am working through Edition 4, with its new material on "Internet and Social Marketing" and "Enterpeneurship" to prepare me for running my own company. Of all the MBA "Overview" books out there, this by far the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent business overview for anyone. Dec 13 2012
By Luke Liria - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered the 3rd edition of the 10 Day MBA in 2010 (book) and the 4th edition in 2012 (kindle). After 20 years in a technical field I am now in a ICT Management position. I enrolled for an Executive MBA program with AGSM in 2008 which is on halt at the moment. I wish I had gone through the Ten Day MBA before enrolling for the Executive MBA Program. The Ten Day MBA's given me a much better overview and some of the stuff in this book relates to the operational environment I am working now. After first reading the 4th edition on one sitting, I am now reading a topic per week, reflecting on operational and business area I am in, and taking down key points as I read each topic. I bought the 3rd and 4th editions to assist me in understanding the business environment and I am not disappointed. I am now able to ask questions on purchase orders and which business unit's book it will hit and where it goes into - Cost of sale (COS) or the General Administration (G&A); thanks to the ten day MBA for making me understand the LOGIC in accounting for a non-business graduate. I would recommend the Ten-Day MBA to anyone who wants to understand business. At the price it is definitely great value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Non-Business Majors Aug. 31 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding resource for those who do not have a business degree but want to be conversant with various business-related terms and concepts. This book is also good for persons trying to decide if they should pursue an MBA degree. Breaking the book into ten chapters makes it an easy read through short and intellectually digestible portions. In a direct comparison with the two year curriculum offered at the University of Florida's Hough Graduate school of Business MBA program, all of the major topics are apparently covered in this book with the omission of perhaps only business policy. I highly recommend this book, especially at a low Amazon price!

5.0 out of 5 stars The MBA experience (minus networking) in a Portable Book Nov. 12 2012
By Aleks - Published on
This book is beyond a phenomenal resource for people considering going into an MBA program or those that have already been through the experience and want/need a refresher. The book is close to 400 pages and I'm a painfully slow reader and still pushed through the book in a fairly good amount of time. However, this book should not be measured by how quickly you complete it, but how much you will learn and gain from it. I gained a ton of knowledge from it and have already begun using the language and ideas learned with my colleagues and clients.

Great book and resource.
