51 Installments—Entirely free
Fred Wilson, a partner at Union Square Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on disruptive startups (investments include Twitter, Foursquare, and Etsy, among others), has created this series (launched every Monday on his blog) about a topic he learned in business school.
Here’s what Fred writes:
My friend Pravin sent me an email last week after my "How To Calculate A Return On Investment" post. He said: “I wish there was a class that I could take that would teach me how to properly research stocks/companies for investment purposes and how that could be made into a private tutoring business. It'd be for people like me, people who didn't go to school for business but still are interested in understanding all the jargon, methods of investing, etc and how to apply it to a buy and hold strategy.” Pravin then went on to say that the post I wrote was exactly the kind of thing he was looking for and that he'd like to see me do more of it. So with that preface, I'd like to announce a new series here at AVC. I'm calling it "MBA Mondays". Every Monday I'll write a post that is about a topic I learned in business school. I'll keep it dead simple (many people thought my ROI post last week was too simple). And I'll try to connect it to some real world experience.
The benefit of DailyLit is that you can set the schedule to read a lesson every Monday—or you can read any day/frequency you want.
Still, the name MBA Mondays lives on.
