World Top MBA Schools: textbooks list?

 
#1 World Top MBA Schools: textbooks list?
20/03/2008 17:02

Sapienza

I have moved to management consulting (strategy) after a PhD and post-doc in science. I have been working for a niche firm in London (to start with) for almost two yrs and I constantly have a thirst for basic knowledge.

I find myself much too focused on delivering results and collecting billable days, but I still have time in the evening to study. The internal library at work is rather dated, and there is almost nothing in terms of MBA textbooks.

I tried to get hold of any list of textbooks/references used for MBA courses in Harvard, LBS, Stanford, Carnegie, Wharton, Columbia, Bocconi etc...but no success...unfortunately I have no friends with a business background that could help me...

To be honest, I do not even know (exactly) what are the standard subjects tought in those schools (though some publish a list of subjects on their webpages: strategy,operations,finance,accounting,marketing ,economics,statistics).

Can anybody help in this forum? Has anybody here got an MBA at LBS, Harvard, Wharton, etc..and remembers the books he studied on?

I am willing to spend a lot of money in books (they are always a good investment)!

Thank you in advance...and...Happy Easter to everybody!

Google is your friend.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/204563/Harvard-Business-School---Reading-Materials-for-MBA-level-STRATEGY

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/204557/Harvard-Business-School---Reading-Materials-for-MBA-level-Finance

Just search for MBA + "reading list" + (name of school) and you should find what you want with a little work.

Sapienza,

You may be interested in taking a look at the MIT's open source, if you don't know it yet.

http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/courses/courses/index.htm#SloanSchoolofManagement

They follow the (great) principle that anyone must have the right to get access to knowledge, so they uploaded most of their courses (including lectures and bibliography) in a very large pool of disciplines, including business-related courses (from Sloane').

You will find good references to a lot of excellent bibliography to a lot of basic knowledge and not only...

Enjoy,

FB

Sapienza to FB (#5)

Dear FB,

Thanks a lot for you piece of advice. The MIT link is great, I wonder if anybody else in the forum can contribute to this thread with other links or tips as well!

I hope you all had a nice Easter.

University of London external MS in international business: a brief overview of the syllabus, no book lists. A good online library in business related disciplines is at www.skillsoft.com - you have to buy a subscription, and it's worth it. wrt MIT, i find Berkeley online material more useful (but that's just me).. http://webcast.berkeley.edu/courses.php

university of london external has published reading lists (information sheets) at undergraduate level: maybe that's worth a look http://www.londonexternal.ac.uk/prospective_students/undergraduate/index.php

for intro to business and management key text was Mullins, 'management and organizational behavior' - it's overwhelming but very good

Defender of the Turth to Dr. Postdoc (#9)

I'd recommend the '10-day MBA' by Steven Silbiger. Great book covers everything quickly and allows you to see what you don't know nad has a bibliography so you can go and find more about the subjects you wont.
