Read the book - 80 minute MBA. It’s really good! https://www.google.com/search?q=80+minute+mba+book&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari

I graduated from my MBA last year. First year was majorly core subjects in which we learnt the basics of everything- Corporate Finance, accounting, statistics, marketing , operations. After that its more based on what you want to learn at the next level based on your career ambitions that ranges from marketing analytics, supply chain analytics to M&A etc. i would highly recommend core courses for basics.

Yup this is all available for free on HBS and other schools. As my post noted, I needed actual reference to books. 2 people were really awesome - they sent the list of recommended books and case studies. Huge shout for both the Wharton & Kellogg person!
