Prospective or Current MBA? Entrepreneur? Manager? Executive?
MBA Depot is designed for all those interested in business, not just current or future MBAs.
Since 1999, I have searched the Web looking for articles, tools and resources to aid your study or your ongoing business career.
Below is a look at what the site offers.

Best-of-Web Articles & Links
Looking for the best business articles and resources? We have combed the Web to bring you the noteworthy, not the noise. You can see a list of the publications or a list of the authors we have included to date.
Recommended Business Books
I know the best-of-web articles will keep you busy, but don't forget the paper press. I've collected the best business books ever published.

Business Case Studies
Case studies are the core learning tools at most MBA programs but you don't need to be an active student to benefit from them. Take a look at the various online business cases I have collected as well as some useful links to different case study repositories.

Business Related Quotations
Need inspiration? I've collected some great quotations for you. Plus, you can create your own collection by saving your favorites. Besides being focused on business, what really makes this 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 (though, naturally I have included many famous business quotes as well).
Too often HR or legal policies solve for the exception — but then you force everyone to operate in a worse environment simply because someday there could be a bad actor who does a bad thing. I’d much rather solve for the 99%.— Marco Zappacosta

Multimedia (Audio/Video) Content
As multimedia content becomes increasingly popular, more and more business material is becoming available and naturally I am always looking for the gems. When possible, the audio/video content will be embedded directly on this site; when not, I will link to the original source.

I have aggregated some of the content types listed above for nine core areas of MBA study, including Accounting, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, IT, Management, Marketing, Operations, and Organizational Behavior into what I call the subject learning center. I have done the same for industry information in the industry learning center
I challenge you to find a more comprehensive collection of online career resources for high-level business professionals. In addition, I offer original content to help you with your Résumé, Interviewing, Networking, and Internships.

Prospective MBA Resources
Articles, Forums, and other Resources
There are many articles and websites for MBA applicants. I have assembled perhaps the best collection of these and grouped them by category:
Links to MBA Program Websites
If you are investigating different MBA program options, I have put together a single page lising of program websites and their BusinessWeek profiles (where available). Various programs also have student-run newspapers that can be worth reading to get a better understanding of the school and its culture.
Essay Writing Course
I have partnered with the folks at Essay Writing Course
