What They Teach You at Harvard Business School

What They Teach You at Harvard Business School : The Internationally-Bestselling Business Classic

'For anyone thinking of doing an MBA, or indeed anyone who wants to understand how the corporate elite are moulded, this is a must read' Luke Johnson, British entrepreneur

The internationally best-selling business classic that reveals what it's really like to study an MBA at one of the most prestigious institutions in the world.

Philip Delves Broughton quit his position as New York correspondent for The Daily Telegraph to take his place on one of the most-coveted and exclusive courses in the world - an MBA at Harvard Business School - to acquire the wisdom reserved for the world's global elite. And what he learns is truly jaw-dropping.

From his first class to graduation - encompassing the guest lectures, the Apprentice-style tasks, the booze-luge, the burnouts and the high flyers - Delves Broughton divulges the advice, wisdom and folly he found whilst studying at the most prestigious business school in the world.

'Anyone considering enrolling will find this an insightful portrait of Harvard Business School life' Economist
