Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here For help preparing for, and support during your MBA course, The Essential MBA brings together a comprehensive overview of the main subjects taught on MBA and business and management programmes in one book. Each chapter is written by a specialized contributor and offers students a helpful introduction to each topic of study, including: Sections on research methods and study skillsFurther reading recommendations and questions for reflectionA critical perspective of the subject matter and reviews of alternative approaches. This text is an invaluable guide for MBA students, as well a useful introduction for undergraduate and postgraduate students of business and management.

As the title suggests The Essential MBA is a must read book. It is fundamental to MBA students as well as to those thinking of embarking on this course. The Essential MBA collects and critically explores core subjects typically taught on MBA degrees in a most accessible language. I highly recommend the book not only to MBA students and teachers but also to those attending other business and management coursesSuzana B. Rodrigues Professor of International Business and Organization, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

This is a text for the thinking MBA student who wants to look beyond the well-worn recipes and tired nostrums that permeate much of management teaching. The critical and reflexive approaches of each chapter promote thought and analysis in the wide range of management disciplines coveredDavid C Wilson Professor of Strategy and Organization, University of Warwick

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I love the honest opinions, recommendations for every genre and every reader, wish lists and Like for Like.
