About the Book

MBA Notes is a combination of lecture notes, strategic frameworks, and useful business and management concepts drawn from online sources. It is primarily intended for:

  1. Current managers who don’t have the time or inclination to enroll in an MBA program.
  2. MBA alumni that want to refresh the concepts learned during their study.
  3. Prospective MBA students that want to get an advanced look at what they will be studying.

You will find useful material covering the subjects taught in business schools, including:

  • Accounting
  • Business Law
  • Case Analysis Tips and Tools
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Leadership
  • Marketing
  • Operations
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Statistics
  • Strategy (including various useful frameworks)

This book does not read this like a regular business book or textbook and does not provide detailed explanations and illustrations of the concepts. Rather, it offers condensed lists, summaries, formulae, and other highlights of core concepts.
