Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Based on Steven Stralser’s popular seminar series, MBA in a Day® offers concise, comprehensive coverage of the vital business topics, important concepts, and proven strategies taught at top business schools. For busy professionals, this straightforward guide offers a comprehensive business education without the time and money of graduate school.

Though suitable for anyone, this book is especially helpful for professional service providers--such as doctors and lawyers--who have extensive training in their profession, but want to learn the business skills necessary to manage a practice or small business. MBA in a Day fills the gap for those who need to understand fundamental business principles they were never taught during their professional education in specialized fields such as law, medicine, engineering, and architecture.

Small business owners and entrepreneurs will find here the same tactics and strategies that full-time MBA students use to get ahead. These classic business essentials are written in plain English, adaptable to any industry or profession, and applicable to today’s complex economic world. Packed with illustrative examples, helpful anecdotes, and real-world case studies, it’s useful as both a guide to learning the fundamentals of business and as a handy reference on your bookshelf.

Divided into four sections--covering management and policy; economics, finance, and accounting; marketing; and systems and processes--this handy resource is easy to navigate and simple to use.

Inside, you’ll find MBA-level advice on these topics and many more:

  • Human resources and personal interaction
  • Ethics and leadership skills
  • Fair negotiation tactics
  • Basic business accounting practices
  • Fundamentals of economics
  • Marketing strategies
  • Advertising and promotion
  • Effective communication and presentations
  • Project management
  • Information technology
  • Using the Internet for business purposes
  • Quality control measures

For professionals focused on the day-to-day challenges of running a successful practice, operating a small business, or launching a new venture, MBA in a Day presents the essential principles and concepts taught at today’s best business schools.

From the Back Cover

Praise for MBA IN A DAY®

"Dr. Stralser's book, MBA in a Day is must reading for every physician who is in a management role, anticipates management responsibilities, or functions in a private, solo, or group practice setting. Insights into the fundamentals of management, marketing, personnel management, finance, and economics will add to one's satisfaction and understanding of his or her contribution in the delivery of modern medicine."

–Anthony F. Vuturo, MD, MPH, FACPE

Senior Vice President, Canyon Ranch Health Resort

Professor Emeritus, University of Arizona College of Medicine

"After thirteen years in the National Hockey League, making the transition from professional athlete to entrepreneur has been eased by the practical knowledge that I have implemented from Professor Stralser's MBA in a Day."

–Jim Johnson

Cofounder, FlexxCoach, e-learning for coaches and athletes

Former National Hockey League player

"Increased demands, limited time, and higher expectations challenge executives as never before. MBA in a Day is an excellent resource to cut through all the noise and focus on fundamental guiding business principles."

–David E. Ratcliffe

Director, The Merrill Lynch Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Management

"Steve Stralser is a master teacher. An MBA from Wharton or Harvard will cost you an arm and a leg. Read this terrific book and invest the money you would have spent on tuition into your own business."

–Robert Kramer, PhD

Director, Executive Education Programs

School of Public Affairs, American University

"The 'fundamental' business principles that Professor Stralser teaches in MBA in a Day are integral to sustaining a fast-growing business by any entrepreneur not formally trained in these concepts."

–Kenny Kramm

The book is easy to understand, well written and logically compiled.

Also, even though this book is intended mainly for service providers (doctors, lawyers), it can be easily extrapolated to any managerial work at whatever stage.
Jusuf Hariman
A definite buy, I am glad I picked up this book.... if you are thinking about doing your MBA, you should too.

Format: Hardcover
The hidden gem in this book, for those of you who don't have formal business education and always wondered whether the MBA was attainable for you, is that this book actually serves a wonderful second purpose. MBA in a Day allows you to "kick the tires", giving you a high-level overview of what you 'should' expect to cover during MBA study. Having read this book, I found the inspiration to learn more; as such I have enrolled in the MBA program where I already completed a masters in IT.

My only issue with MBA in a Day is that I would have loved to have seen a chapter on Entrepreneurship-- which would be relevant to certain MBA-wannabes (like me), as well as the existing professionals (the main audience of the book) hoping to launch their own private practices.

Neverthelesss, Dr. Stralser presents a wide variety of topics (including HR, Organizational Behaviour, Leadership, Ethics, Accounting/Finance, Economics, Marketing, Project Management, IS and Quality Management) in such an approachable way, making seemingly daunting subject matter easy to digest and appreciate.

A definite buy, I am glad I picked up this book.... if you are thinking about doing your MBA, you should too.

In my case the book was a great refresher having graduated over 3 years ago with a Business Adm. Major in college.

For anyone unfamiliar with basic business concepts (Theory) this book is a practical & simple guide to learning the basics.

For other's like me it's a great reference tool and refresher if you've been away from the books for a while.

I'm planning to go to B-School this fall and I feel a little more comfortable now- knowing that the material is fresh in my mind.

The book is easy to understand, well written and logically compiled. I would definitely recommend anyone searching for a business concepts book to give this book a shot.

Format: Hardcover
I think I reached the point in my reading career, no more books that try to include a massive topic in 300 pages. Nothing against the author or the book itself but I have a hard time justifying speading 10 hours reading a book that simply skims so many surfaces that the value is simply not there. Yes, the topics are great and the info is wonderful and correct but what would one use this book for? I don't know. There simply are no short cuts sometimes and I think these type of books motivate some people to use them as study guides (which is about the only value it has). In summary, I am swearing off these "time saving" books.
