9780136138730: The MBA Handbook: Skills for Mastering Management

The MBA Handbook is a solid support guide for students studying for their MBA, providing advice about the whole MBA process, including choosing a course and examining post-MBA job opportunities. It can be used either to support a specific study skills unit on the course or as student reference and support beyond the classroom - it therefore has a lot of value for distance-learning students.
