25 need-to-know MBA models
There are many models and frameworks in use in the business world today, and it is hard to keep track of them all. We wrote this book to help you make sense of the most important of these models – to understand where they came from, when you might use them, how to use them and what are their biggest benefits and weaknesses.
The title 25 need-to-know MBA models reflects the fact that these models are all taught to students at business schools seeking to get an MBA (Masters in Business Administration). The MBA is a generalist degree – in other words, it is designed to provide students with a broad grounding in all the key aspects of business. This book reflects the breadth of the MBA. It has five sections, each one corresponding to a typical core course in the first year of an MBA programme. While we only discuss five models in each section, we also make reference to other important models, to give you a flavour of the scope of the materials covered in such a core course.
