Brian Dick

Before I launch into the “About Me” portion of this page, I’d like to first thank you for visiting The Condensed MBA. I hope that through my site, you are able to gather valuable information about the MBA admissions process, classes, and post-graduation career guidance.  I have developed this site to help chronicle the learnings I’ve made through my MBA experience, and to provide answers to the questions that I wish I had asked throughout my MBA experience.  If you have further questions or insights that you feel are not covered on this site, I encourage you to send me emails (@ CondensedMBA@gmail.com ) or check out my MBA Resources page. On this page I will include links to other popular MBA-related websites that I’ve used along the way. These sites

were the resources that were provided to us as incoming first year’s at Ohio State University (Fisher). I have included other resources after contacting fellow MBA alums from other programs to ensure I did not have too strong of an OSU bias in my content. It turns out, fortunately, that most top level schools follow the same general structure and disseminate similar information and resources.

  • My take on advertising: I have opted to include Google Adsense ads on my site to help to recoup my hosting costs if at all possible. These links, however, do not necessarily promote products that I’ve used or endorse. If there is a product I wish to endorse (because either I or a friend has used it successfully), I will make explicit note of this so that my audience knows that it receives the “Condensed MBA Seal of Approval.” I will try to keep the ad content minimal to increase user experience, but I may also be testing various ad placement for my own learning (analytics.)
