My View:

The books on entrepreneur is always my first preference, recently I went to crossword and show this wonderful book called MBA @ 16, without thinking further I picked this book. Although this is not the first time I am reading Subroto Bagchi so I know his work on entrepreneurship and business.

MBA @ 16 is not about how to start your business at 16 but it’s a curious cases for young MBA’s who wants’ to do something different for the society by becoming entrepreneur. I think this book is a blueprint for those who want to pursue entrepreneurship. Each and every important points being taken into consideration by the author like how to raise fund from angel investor, supply and demand management, logistic, marketing and sales, accounting, innovation, HR, advertisement etc.

The writing style of author is simple and easy to digest, no difficult terminologies being used while convening the message like raw material to finished products is easily conveyed by giving the example of mother’s kitchen. Many complicated business tactics is simply presented to the readers by the author as a story. I really loved to read about Steve jobs, Bill Gates, Dr. Verghese Kurien, Sergey Brin, Larry Page and many other famous personalities.

This book will transform Job Seeker into Job Creator. A must read for those who want to jump in business rather than doing a monotonous job, also I highly recommend this book to the budding entrepreneurs and MBA students.  


Steve Jobs was all of sixteen when he met Stephen Wozniak. What resulted was Apple. When Sergey Brin and Larry Page met at Stanford, they were in their early twenties. They were soon to start Google.

Today’s teenagers are our smartest generation yet. They are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, investors, managers, policymakers, watchdogs and, of course, consumers. But do you know what the corporate and business world is all about? How do businesses touch everyone’s lives? What really makes an entrepreneur tick? How does the engine of a company run? Who is a social entrepreneur? And why do we need the world of business - is business good or bad for us?

If you are curious, come join Subroto Bagchi and a group of smart teenagers on their exciting voyage of discovery, and in a process get yourself a teen MBA!
