Words of the Week – Deciphering American Buzzwords


My friend, Yen-Ju from Taiwan, used to stop me after almost every MBA class to ask for a definition of American buzzword phrases. What does “roll the dice” mean? How about “throw spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks?” Yen-Ju had so many questions, we turned it in to a Words of the Week segment in our International Business Association newsletter. We figured if she was wondering, other international students must be wondering, too.


I continued the Words of the Week series on MBA in the USA, and am so pleased to present the compilation: 99 Essential Buzzwords for International MBAs. Available now at the Amazon Kindle storeBuild rapport, exude competence, and get the offer…all for $2.99. Enjoy!
