Now in its 19th edition, Which MBA? is the most authoritative and prestigious guide to MBAs and executive education around the world. With an unbiased and detailed assessment of executive education degrees, this book, through its history of solid sales, is firmly established within the trade as one of the best. As with previous editions, there is a focus on different executive education programmes and the skills every future executive will need, but the latest edition includes two new chapters. The first is on MBA themes, including the types of MBA's available, the experience and qualifications student needs, and the practical issues including applications and costs. The second chapter explains the core subjects that make up the MBA curriculum and looks at the soft skills of leadership, what employers are looking for, which schools are renowned in each subject area and the role of the internship and placement within the MBA.
