Portable MBA

The New Portable MBA
ISBN 0-471-08004-7
By Eliza G.C. Collins and Mary Anne Devanna
P 565.00

It all started with one book that had a simple goal: bring the wisdom of today's top MBA programs into the home libraries of business professionals everywhere. In a nutshell - offer the skills, ideas and power of the MBA without the time and cost. The idea took hold. And now, over 300,000 copies later, The Portable MBA has become a staple on the business shelf.
In letter-writing, one ought to be natural; but ease and naturalness should not be allowed to degenerate into slipshod English and vulgar slang. Business and official letters in particular, require more care and thought than social letters.

Designed to carry tomorrow's leaders into the 21st century, The New Portable MBA capitalized on the strengths that made its predecessor a classic. It offers contributions from an international all-star team of experts from today's business schools and provides readers with topics, including managing people, finance, economics, and accounting; marketing management; information technology; leadership; strategy and more.
