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!
