Minute MBA: Entrepreneurs are Psychopaths, have ADHD and Don’t Live in Big Cities

If only we could get savvy business tips in short, researched-based anecdotes that are highly entertaining and visual. And wouldn’t it be cool if these snippets of information cut out all the BS and just gave it to us the way it is — like in real life — without the bloated projects, hidden agendas, and brownnosing that often go along with business school?

Still in its infancy, One Minute MBA, a series of videos created to complement online MBA programs by touching on key concepts most commonly tackled in business school, may be on to something in the way it conveys information. Succinct videos that offer real-life applications, tested strategies and research-based theories come to life in snarky, sassy and humorous one-minute clips. So far, the company has nine videos as part of its larger “online MBA guide,” but we sort of think it’s a great resource for anyone who could use a little brushing up on the ABCs of business.
For a sneak peek into this clever resource, check out this video on 5 characteristics of successful entrepreneurs:

    Watching this was disappointing. The first comment is particularly absurd. Entrepreneurs deliver value to society: they see a problem and find solutions. This is not psychopathic behavior.

    Not all super wealthy people are entrepreneurs and not all entrepreneurs are super wealthy. How are they then lumped together as psychopaths? If you made this kind of first point in an assignment for your MBA class or for that matter in an undergrad business class, you should get an F.

      Hi Vijay. Sorry this upset you. The post is meant to be humorous as is the video. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we found it to be quite funny and didn’t take it personally. Please understand that we support small businesses and entrepreneurship and that this was simply meant to be a light-hearted Friday post.
