News & Opinion: 101 Things

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 6:46 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Michael Preis and Matthew Frederick have written an interesting little book called 101 Things I Learned in Business School, which is part of the "101 Things I Learned" series of books.

On the surface, it's a listing of 101 points both technically proficient, and philosophically sound. With info on mission statements, accounting, definitions of various business terms, to "how to" issues like culture analysis, looking forward, and sales and advertising practices, this small sized book is really thorough in it's scope, and is perfect for the MBA student as a handy reference, or for anyone else that wants some of the core knowledge without spending a ton on a new degree.
