So I stumbled upon a great reading list for those interested in business and I thought I would share it. It's called the PMBA or "personal mba."
What is the Personal MBA?
“You wasted $150,000 on an education you coulda got for a buck fifty in late charges at the public library.” - Will Hunting (played by Matt Damon), Good Will Hunting
The Personal MBA (PMBA) is an experiment in educational entrepreneurism. This manifesto will show you how to substantially increase your knowledge of business on your own time and with little cost, all without setting foot inside a classroom.
The PMBA is more flexible than a traditional MBA program, doesn’t involve going into massive debt, and won’t interrupt your income stream for two years. Just set aside some dedicated reading time, pick up a good book, learn as much as you can, and go out and make great things happen.
The full Manifesto and reading list can be found here:http://joshkaufman.net/personalmba/
