*Are you cut out for an MBA in the first place?
*How to choose an appropriate school and how to apply.
*What to expect in the classroom.
*Which skills are required in the business world?
*What are the likely job prospects after you graduate?

This book will not just help you embark on your MBA journey with more clarity, it will save you time and money, and, most importantly, direct you to your career goals.
