The Keynote MBA

Truth is, the great value in most MBA and JD pro­grams can be boiled down to 5 to 10 talks, present­a­tions, classes and con­ver­sa­tions that changed the way you exper­i­enced the world.

Fol­low­ing up on this com­ment, Jonath­an Fields presents The Sev­en Key­note MBA: sev­en key­note speeches, from a diverse group of people, that togeth­er Fields believes will provide you as much real-world advice as an MBA.
