University of California business professor Peter Navarro joins more than a dozen of his colleagues--including Stephen A. Ross of MIT's Sloan School, Daniel Spulber of Northwestern's Kellogg School, and Charles P. Bonini of Stanford University's Graduate School of Business--to provide you with the key concepts, tools, and knowledge that, until now, could only be obtained through an MBA degree. This comprehensive book--as engaging as it is informative--covers virtually every subject taught in an intensive MBA program, including:

  • Corporate Finance: Big Questions and Key Concepts
  • Organizational Behavior: The Power of People and Leadership
  • Statistics, Decision Analysis, and Modeling: How the Numbers Help Us Manage
  • Managerial Economics: Microeconomics for Managers

In each chapter, What the Best MBAs Know first identifies the key concepts of a subject like strategy or finance. One of the world's top business professors then illustrates how these concepts are applied on a daily basis in the rough-and-ready world of international business. The insights of these top professors throw open the doors of the best business schools as they highlight the latest strategies and tactics driving today's intensely competitive landscape.

Whether you are currently pursuing an MBA, already have an MBA but need to refresh and update your information, or simply want to arm yourself with MBA-level knowledge without the time and financial commitments involved in obtaining the degree, this all-in-one resource will help to place you on the same strategic playing field as your competitors.
