Summary of The Personal MBA (Josh Kaufman)

Book Abstract

MAIN IDEA

Instead of spending $150,000 and two years of your life to graduate from an MBA program, you’re far better off gaining your own self-education in business by taking advantage of the 11,000 new business books which get published worldwide every year and the 1.2 million business books which already exist. To really get well educated for a career in business, skip school and take charge of your own business education.

It’s hard for me to understand why getting an MBA is a better use of time and money than actual experience combined with a dedicated reading of 30 or 40 books.

– Seth Godin

When you get right down to brass tacks, all a good two-year full-time MBA will teach you are the three fundamental things you need to know in order to succeed in the business sphere, which can be broken down into eleven topics. If you set about getting a solid knowledge base of your own in these areas and combine that with actual hands-on experience in learning what works and what doesn’t in each of these topics, you’ll have a solid, real-world business education which is the equivalent of anything you’d learn by studying for an MBA.
