Summer reading for business students

Undergraduate | Jul 06, 2018 |

Whether you’re taking classes, going to a job or internship, or on vacation, summer is an ideal time to catch up on some reading.

“Reading refreshes your mind and can offer new perspectives on business and economic topics,” says Dean Donna Rapaccioli. Books she has recently enjoyed are Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing by Daniel Pink, and Blockchain: Blueprint for the New Economy by Melanie Swan.

Business Insider’s recommendations include Brotopia by Emily Chang, Applied Empathy: The New Language of Leadership by Michael Ventura, and The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World’s Most Successful People Launched Their Careers by Alex Banayan.

On Inc.’s list are EQ Applied: The Real-World Guide to Emotional Intelligence by Justin Bariso and Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself by Mike Michalowicz.

Looking for books on specific industries? Forbes offers a list for marketers. Interested in what Bill Gates is reading? See his suggested reading list here.

If nothing on these lists inspires you, head to the library to find a cool respite from the summer heat and many more options for every reader.
