9780749462154: The 30 Day MBA in Business Finance: Your Fast Track Guide to Business Success


The 30 Day MBA in Business Finance
helps readers learn the major points of a business finance curriculum. It shows them how to become a financial strategist, how to move out of their disciplinary straightjacket, and how to become top managers. Though based on UK accounting practice, this book makes readers more marketable as job candidates by offering them a familiarity with a wide world of knowledge of finance. The book includes fifteen case studies, including studies of the Bulgarian government (the most aggressive corporate tax regime in Europe), Lloyd's, Northern Rock (the embattled British bank), and Lehman Brothers, the now bankrupt financial services firm.

Review:


"Covering areas of business finance with which an MBA student gains familiarity, this work for the business professional who doesn't plan to pursue an MBA provides an accessible explanation of the basics. Barrow (Cranfield U.) makes frequent use of case studies, along with occasional figures and tables. References are embedded in the text and most often take the form of websites where...useful tools can be downloaded." -- Book News, Inc.
