MGMT 5320 Healthcare Leadership & Talent Management: Getting Started

Questions about business basics? Start here!

Business research and analysis can be difficult if you are new to certain areas. For example, if you work primarily in marketing but need to deal with a finance related issue you could spend an enormous amount of time just identifying relevant concepts and what they mean. Here are my favorite sites for 'ramping up' quickly and easily when I am new to an area or concept.

Portable MBA

Great E-book that can fill in the gaps or refresh your knowledge regarding most business concepts. Excellent chapter on business analysis and valuation of companies as well as good information regarding all functional areas (marketing, strategy, accounting, financce, cis etc.)

Introduction

This guide will help you manage a graduate-level class's research and information needs in MGMT 5320 Healthcare Leadership & Talent Management. It contains several parts.
