The course concludes with two lectures that will help you select, apply to, and prepare for your business schools of choice. However, you don't have to be a prospective student to benefit from this course. Any business executive wishing to further hone his or her management skills will find this course to be extremely valuable.

Definitely geared towards people considering entering an MBA program (since there is a decent amount of info about the application and admission process), and not quite as great for people who want a sampling or refresher of MBA material. I believe that there are other books better suited for that.
One really annoying thing while listening was the number of audio editing issues. There were many occasions where the narrator made a mistake and then repeated his whole sentence assuming it would be corrected during audio editing, but they never were. Apparently no one proof-listened to this production before releasing it. That kind of carelessness is hard to believe (especially for an audio book that retails for $40!). If you can ignore it, then it doesn't really affect the material. I definitely found it annoying and embarrassing though.
I am a business law teacher, with a law degree but not an MBA. I wanted to link up my language and concepts with those of other business courses. This professor essentially reads a big outline at a fairly fast pace. A person without some previous exposure to the general topics might struggle with this. The download materials include helpful charts, but complete competence would of course require taking the full classes.
