Reviewed in the United States on 23 April 2019
Having completed my own MBA, in an in-person class setting (not online), I learned so many valuable topics and yet often find myself trying to recall a principle that has escaped me. This book provides a wonderful refresher and helps me recall things I had learned. In the past I would pull up my personal notes (typed up in Google Docs, or written directly on the cases), only to find that I didn't take that good of notes. Now, I'll have a much better and visual way of reviewing what I had learned/forgotten, and even learn new topics I hadn't covered.

In addition, the breadth is enormous... I believe it covers almost all the courses I had in my own MBA, plus some that I didn't take. For example, while I did learn some about global business, this book has a full chapter assigned to it. One of the topics discussed in that chapter is the CAGE distance framework, which helps a manager think about global business outside simply a geographic distance, including cultural, administrative, geographic and economic distance differences between your potential customers. As I'm currently working on some cross the globe business projects I'll be turning to this section frequently to make sure I'm best aligning my targeting.

Anyhow, all around great book, and I'm happy to have it in my business arsenal!

3.0 out of 5 stars Below expectation
Reviewed in the United States on 26 August 2020
If this is an encapsulation of a 2-year over $250K MBA degree program, what's the sense of spending all that time and money if this is all you get. This is either a promotion of the simplicity of MBAs or a "Not worth the time or money" disrating.

It lacked substance. As a standalone, the sketchnotes do not provide reasonable depth of information for a non MBA student. At best, this is more suited for elementary and Jnr High, and as a supplement for HS econ ir business education subjects. This would give those students a headstart about how the world operates and the essential principles of business administration.
