It‘s a popular belief that getting an MBA is the golden ticket to kickstarting a successful business, climbing the corporate ladder, or snagging a high-paying job that can buy you a vacation house in the Hamptons. And sure, you learn a great deal and become more business savvy when you , but there is still a large scope of practical skills that business school can fail to impart in its students.

Venture capitalist, professor, Goldman Sachs alum, and proud Columbia University MBA graduate Chris Haroun knows that, and it‘s precisely the reason why he came up with the course — an e-learning package you can now get at the Mashable Shop .

In this course, you‘ll get expert advice on how to score a meeting with anyone, learn the secret to navigating corporate politics and interacting with the big guns, gain tips on how to lead with confidence, and explore a litany of the best management and sales practices, all from a man who‘s raised over $1 billion during his career.
