Business Expert Press Ebooks. Easy to buy, easy to own, easy to use.

Business Expert Press was established in 2008 with input from faculty and academic librarians, and today, our ebooks, print titles, and digital libraries are used by hundreds of thousands of students. Business Expert Press publishes concise, practical treatments of the topics taught in MBA programs. Our born-digital books are written by professors and practitioners who translate real-life business experiences into teaching tools, and serve as curriculum-oriented, cost-effective alternatives to high-priced textbooks. Unencumbered by DRM, they can be used easily and without limitation by the academic community.

More and more of our customers are now on our platform, iG Library eBooks Platform. Our platform offers all the features librarians want – DRM free content, downloadable pdfs, outstanding IT service when questions come up, easily navigated, and other features. iG Library eBooks Platform ensures that all your content is found easily in Summons, Serials Solutions, ExLibris, OCLC, and other discovery services. If you’re not on our platform, and would like to see all that we offer, let us know!
