      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    MBA At 16: A Teenager’s Guide To Business is a book for teenagers dealing with the functionality of a business entity.

    Summary Of The Book

    Subroto Bagchi’s MBA At 16: A Teenager’s Guide To Business presents a business guide for teenage readers. Designed to be a young people’s guide, it unleashes the true picture of the business world. Teenagers who have always been curious to know how a business entity works will find this book quite interesting and informative.

    Many of the leading businessmen started their businesses when they were young adults. Steve Jobs met Stephen Wozniak at the age of sixteen and together they produced Apple. The founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, were in their early twenties when they met at Stanford. Today’s generation will be tomorrow’s consumers, managers, investors, and entrepreneurs.

    These teenagers, who dream of leading a business, are often confronted with various questions. What is the business world all about? How does a business touch lives? What are the key character traits of a successful entrepreneur? How does a company run? This book answers these questions and more.

    MBA At 16: A Teenager’s Guide To Business covers various aspects of raising funds from angel investors, venture capitalists, nuances of supply-chain management, difference between the sales and marketing department, importance of advertising, worth of true leadership, and many others. One of the most important features of this book is that all the aspects of fundraising are explained from the point of view of a teenager of Urban India.

    Bagchi organized workshops in Bangalore that included select students from National Public School. The aim of these workshops was to figure out what these teenage students wished to know about business. Though the situations and conversations included here are fictional, the characters of the book are drawn from the actual students. Additionally, there are a few imaginary characters such as Fly High, Cyber the Dog and Polar.

    MBA At 16: A Teenager’s Guide To Business does not teach how to crack the CAT exam. It does not even inform how one can acquire an MBA degree. On the contrary, it is a book specifically for teenage readers to help them know what goes on in a business entity on a day-to-day basis.

    Not up to mark

    Though I received this book before time from flipkart and started with lot of excitement. But I found, its not upto mark and its lack of the X factor with comparison to rest other books(Go kiss the world, high performance entrepreneur) by Mr. Bagchi. Something grossly missing in this book where you wont feel like complete the book at a stretch.

    What is Business?

    Being a 14 year old, I really enjoyed this book. With a long term aim of becoming a businesswoman, I wanted to know what exactly is business; and this book does exactly that. It takes a teen through the actual world of business without boring him/her. The language is simple, which appeals to us.
    Firstly, I was a little apprehensive about buying this book as seeing the title, I assumed it to be a self-help book. But hey, you can never be sure right? The delivery service was amazing as usual (...

    Must read for a budding entrepreneur

    Great book, especially for the teens.
    This book definitely changes your perception on looking at ones "Core-Competency". It also helps you understand a few Bussiness terms like moving up the "Value Chain".

    However, I feel "the debate" towards the end should not have remained inconclusive or could have been dealt better.

    Strictly meant for below 18

    Being a Subroto Bagchi fan, jumped and grabbed this book.
    Honestly, a big disappointment after reading specially the professional by same author.
    While reading, I knew the analogy of examples which will come next so that MBA course in this book is completed.
    This style is different but not to the level created by Mr. Bagchi.

    A must read for everyone

    This book is just not for people who are 16 but also for those who have completed their MBA and also for those who are currently working. This book tells you in very simple way just like a story but in a very positive manner. For those who are thinking to have their own startup this book is very helpful. I recommend this book to all ages and also Schools should adopt this book in their curriculum.

    Simply Amazing...!!!

    MBA at 16 is just amazing book. According to me each and every entrepreneur must go for this book at least once. The way author explain the all the business concept with examples are awesome. Not a single page you will find boring. Each and every pages generates eagerness in you what is next concept. It will help only for Businessman and Start Ups. Author can also add some of the more practical example but overall its good and in easy language.

    Travelled in vague direction on a Right path till now.. but in Right direction from now onwards

    This book as titled 'MBA At 16' is not only for teenagers of 16 years old but for everyone who wants to know what business is actually all about. I didn't know most of the things that are explained over here by Subroto. Very vividly he wrote and made a mind understand that what is MBA and how big and large enterprises originated. Well written (Y). Do read if you really want to get the knowledge of business and surely before aiming for MBA.
