Rajesh Setty has just published a free ebook inspired by a column of mine from a long time ago: "When you can't earn an MBA...".
The reason people need an MBA? (or at least the reason most people do): it's hard to follow through and stick with a self-improvement program when you don't have the financial commitment and social pressure.
You could be the exception... it's shorter and cheaper than two years, but not so easy!
