    1. It doesn't say anything new. Anyway a general overview of those basic economic concepts might always be useful

    2. This is what the captains of industry learn in order to manage the businesses of capitalism, stay ahead of the competition, and rake in the profits.Peter paints the big picture overview of:- how to find and manage the funds for capital facilities and activities (Corporate Finance);- how to produce products and services (Operations and Supply Chain Management), and distribute, market, and sell them (Strategic Marketing);- how to outfox and beat the rivals (Management Strategy, Managing the Busine [...]

    3. A whirlwind tour through the various subjects studied in the course of most MBA programs. I was just sort of curious, and this let me know what it would be like, but none of the subjects were covered in enough depth to really get any understanding of them. Gives you a sense what gets taught in an MBA program, but doesn't really teach you any of it.

    4. The first few minutes of the audio let me know I was not in the target audience.The presentation was more of a advertisement for top MBA programs. I came away with a whole bunch of marketing and finance buzzwords (I already learned most of the other topics) without context to give true understanding.

    5. Helpful overview of the major concepts taught in business school. It is definitely an overview and leaves many concepts with just a passing explanation, so I'm glad I'm about to get the real thing!
