Business Related Quotations

Need inspiration? We've got the words for you. Plus, we let you create your own collection! Besides being focused on business, what really makes our collection of quotes unique is that they are mostly taken directly from articles and other resources reviewed for the site so you are not likely to find them anywhere else (but, of course, we do have some famous quotes as well).

left quotation mark image Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. right quotation mark image -- Barack Obama

Letters of Recommendation Help Center

Case Studies

A typical MBA program will expose you to a lot of theoretical learning and reading material and countless case studies. If you're a current MBA student, why not use the case study center to share thoughts, files and other case study efforts. But, don't neglect the "practical" readings that are found throughout the MBA Depot site as a supplement to all the theory you're getting in the classroom.

My School

You may also find the My School feature useful. It is a collection of useful links to many MBA programs across the globe. You can use it to explore potential programs or, if you are currently enrolled, you can use it as an online set of bookmarks for your school's most useful URLs.
