Los mejores libros de negocios que están marcando el futuro

Today’s business students are tomorrow’s business leaders, entrepreneurs, and
policymakers. So DegreeQuery thought it would be a good idea to find out what books are
shaping the minds that will shape our future. Using data from Open Syllabus,
DegreeQuery researchers identified the most assigned business books at public schools
and Ivy League colleges.
And although no books appear on both lists, they still found some big overlaps in the
subject matter. For example, Ivy League and Public Schools both put a strong emphasis
on leadership skills. The Essentials of Organizational Behavior by Stephen Robbins and
Organizational Culture and Leadership by  Peter Schein made it onto the Ivy League’s
most popular reading list.
At the same time, public school students are learning the art of effective management from
Daniel Goleman’s insightful collection of essays, What Makes a Good Leader: Why
Emotional Intelligence Matters. Goleman’s often cited work combines business strategy
with the latest neuroscientific research to create a data-led approach to boosting
performance, fostering effective relationships, and encouraging innovation.
“Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character;
sow a character, reap a destiny.” – Stephen Covey
And both public and private Ivy League schools are making sure that future business
leaders understand a company’s greatest resource – its people. Abraham Maslow’s A
Theory of Human Motivation is one of the most assigned pieces of reading at the Ivy
League. First published in 1943,  A Theory of Human Motivation is a classic paper on what
Maslow called the hierarchy of needs – a vital theory in developmental psychology for
understanding human motivation. 

Peter  Senge, a senior lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),
explores Maslow’s ideas in The Fifth Discipline. A fixture on public school reading lists
across the states, Senge’s book argues that enabling employees to achieve personal
mastery is one of the quickest ways to make any business a success.
