'For anyone thinking of doing an MBA, or indeed anyone who wants to understand how the corporate elite are moulded, this is a must read' Luke Johnson, British entrepreneur

The internationally best-selling business classic that reveals what it's really like to study an MBA at one of the most prestigious institutions in the world.

Philip Delves Broughton quit his position as New York correspondent for The Daily Telegraph to take his place on one of the most-coveted and exclusive courses in the world - an MBA at Harvard Business School - to acquire the wisdom reserved for the world's global elite. And what he learns is truly jaw-dropping.

From his first class to graduation - encompassing the guest lectures, the Apprentice-style tasks, the booze-luge, the burnouts and the high flyers - Delves Broughton divulges the advice, wisdom and folly he found whilst studying at the most prestigious business school in the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
For anyone thinking of doing an MBA, or indeed anyone who wants to understand how the corporate elite are moulded, this is a must read * Luke Johnson, chairman of Channel 4 *
Anyone considering enrolling will find this an insightful portrait of HBS life * Economist *
Horrifying and very funny... [an] excellent book * Wall Street Journal *
A searingly funny account... Hilarious * Evening Standard *
The result of Delves Broughton's time there is this funny and revealing insider's view, revealing precisely because he is genuinely fascinated by the world of business, and his fascination is infectious * The Sunday Times *
He sets the scene brilliantly, capturing an essence of HBS that is part cult, part psychological morass, part hothouse... For anyone planning to attend this remarkable institution, Delves Broughton's book is invaluable... A quite brilliant book -- Simon Heffer * Literary Review *
Delves Broughton sketches out the Harvard curriculum and his fellow travellers with skill and wit... His work is a handy introduction for those who crave the mega-bucks and mega-power that HBS brings many of its graduates. But while it is not the kind of book that non-business readers will naturally reach for, it deserves a broader audience * The Times *
A useful primer for anyone considering a similar path, or just curious as to how Harvard churns out all those gleaming little masters of the universe * Washington Post *
A particularly absorbing and entertaining read * Financial Times *
A cautionary tale for those who believe that the grass - and their future paycheck - would be greener if only they could jump the fence into the rarefied world of the Masters of Business Administration * New York Times *
Original, clever, funny - and full of insights into one of the most influential insitutions in the world -- George Osborne, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
What They Teach You...' is a hilarious, perceptive and unflinching account of the strange world of Harvard Business School, its students and the wider world of business which they are set to dominate. It is the Liar's Poker of the MBA set. Destined to become a classic -- Albert Read, General Manager of Conde Nast
Informative, wry, and well-written, this book will make rewarding and pleasurable reading for anybody wishing to understand why business is the way it is. * John Cassidy, staff writer for The New Yorker and author of Dot.Con *
