News & Opinion: Your Personal MBA Program

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:03 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Remember Seth's post on skipping the MBA? He said get experience and read some books. That generated lots of chatter. Take a look at BlogPulse's Conversation Finder with Seth's post as the starting point (be patience, this takes a minute to load) .

There is one post that has surfaced from this discussion. Josh Kaufman has developed an actual list you can use to get your personal MBA. There is something around 120 books and resources on the list. You can see in the Conversation Finder that post become the basis for alot of the continuing discussion. Over 500 people in have saved it as a link in their account.

I think the list is a little heavy on recent titles. Nonetheless, it is a great starting point.
