Cornell 1 yr is for someone with Graduate degree in a Tech discipline (engineering, computer science, etc) otherwise you dont qualify for admission

Michigan, USC,UCLA 1 yr programs are Executive MBAs requiring multiple years of managerial level work experience.

From your list only Northwestern has a 1yr program where you can get in with at least 3 years of work experience. Very very tough getting into...

The only other respectable/good school offering 12 month regular MBA with 2 years work experience is the University of Florida.

this might be a tough one, but does anyone know of a 12 month MBA with specific specialization in Equity Valuation/Investment Management?

Every schools offers, courses, etc, but I want that specialization shown on my diploma.

you can do MBA/Msc Investment Management
at HONG KONG UST in about 16 months.

In that time you can exchange to Columbia,NYU, Chicago or Berkeley and take their elective courses.

I do not know of any other well known school offering such a combination

Apart from the exchange possibilities, what makes this MBA so special? I'm curious because I have not heard about the MBA you mention (but that doesn't mean much, I don't know much about US MBAs).

Jona. You are asking what makes the Metropolitan College of New York Special?

1) Well you travel to Europe for 12 days with your classmates and professors and study internationa business there for free if you go to this school. No other school does that.

2) You do an actual "Constructive Action" Project and Thesis. Constructive Actions means your class will set up a real and original business plan, put the plan to work, make the business and evaluate it or improve on a real company's business plan, that collaberates with the school to market the plan. No other school does that. All the other schools do is only teach you a course from a book. That won't get you a job, because you will have no experience. You need experience & and MBA to put on your resume and metropolitan College of New York does that for you.
http://www.mcny.edu/business/mba_general.php

2) I would say this: The professors teaching you the courses are actual MBA practioners which means they either are CEO's of real businesses or own there own companies. You should look at who is teaching you. For example, at NYU, they don't tell you who is teaching you. Its probably a professor from another department teaching you a course he really doesn't know anything about. Metropolitan College of New York tells you upfront who are the professors that will teach you. You can see the professors profile in the website and all there business accomplishments and verify it. Look at the professor accomplishments yourself. http://www.mcny.edu/business/mediafaculty.php
They keep updating the list and its always Professors with advanced degrees AND business Accomplishments.

I did not understand you in all your points I'm afraid.
A stay in Europe in order to study in a different environment, certainly is a valuable experience. But what do you mean by "you... study international business there for free if you go to this school. " ? Is the MBA for free, no tuition?

Besides, I don't think it's any true that "all the other schools do is only teach you a course from a book" - on the contrary, a good MBA is conceived to be close to real life, your experience is taken into account, and the goal is to prepare you to perform as a practitioner, in a management job, not in a scientific career.

What is certainly NOT true is that in NYU "Its probably a professor from another department teaching you a course he really doesn't know anything about."

I wonder where you got these ideas? The MBA you describe might have its qualities, but the arguments you give here don't convince me.

Im sorry. let me clarify.

IF you attend Metropolitan College of New York MBA program which is located in New York City, USA, Metropolitan College of New York sends all students to Europe for free to learn International Business perspectives. In Europe, the European companies recruit the Metropolitan College of New York MBA students during those 12 days AND WHEN YOU come back to NY the Companies in NY recruit you, too. You pay tuiton to attend the Metropolitan College of NY MBA program, but you dont pay anything extra to attend the Europe field trip. That is free.

*******I disagree with you. I would know. NYU has a great reputation. But the competition is deep and you are competing with many other NYU students for the same job. Sometimes, patience is good. Sometimes it's not. And many international students, like yourself, won't get into NYU anyway.

Smaller colleges are easier to get into.
Small schools, at times do better than large schools getting you a real job in the career you studied for, because small schools like Metropolitan College of New York, are better at knowing the student, growing with the student, increasing networking opportunities, and many company's CEO's graduated from small schools too and then go back to these small schools to recruit students.
For an international student, I would not go to NYU or these big schools, because you will not get a job in the field. You will have to wait in line patiently as NYU and Colubmia graduate USA students and International students many hundreds of graduates every semester.

I have studied NYU and Metropolitan College of New York program's as I was accepted to both programs at the same time. One issue was money and NYU is not guarteeing me a job so....
I decided to go to Metropolitan College of New York, worked on a business plan & thesis, which is as close to practioner experience as you can get, and graduated in 1 year with an MBA in Media Managment. NYU would have taken me 2 years.

YOu need to research both schools, I suggest you look at the Professors at NYU teaching, see what are there accomplishments. THE PROFESSORS ARE THE ONES THAT GET YOU THE JOBS THROUGH NETWORKING AND CONTACTS IF THEY TRUE PRACTIONERS AND OWN COMPANIES AT THE SAME TIME THEY TEACH and have contacts.........I DOUBT THAT AT NYU, YOU ARE PAYING NYU FOR THE "NAME BRAND" NOT FOR THE QUALITY. YOU NEED QUALITY TO COMPARE.

Keep in mind you are an international student, I was an American student, those big schools graduate American students by the hundreds, and then international students behind that. You may get lost in the shuffle.

Small, schools you may get a chance to integrate yourself better and stand out.

THAT'S IT WITH MY ADVICE. SORRY, DAN.

I've been reading through some posts dealing with 1-yr MBA programs in the US and I have not seen a single post on any site (B-week, here... okay, so that's only two sites...) that mentions Hult International Business School in Boston. Is there a reason for the obscurity or is this place the best-kept secret in MBA circles? I am very curious to hear opinions about this place. It is fairly well ranked in The Economist...

Ross is not a 1 year program (for a mention before), some schools also offer an intensive track (like LBS).

In general, the US traditional MBA is two years, and this will not change. I believe that for many people the 1 year program is better because they do not want to be out of the work for a longer period, and also many companies prefer that their employers enrol a 1Y because they have higher changes of them to come back to the company. Despite all of these, for instance, many MBAs at Insead have criticized the program for to be too intensive in a short period of time (10 months) and not be able to success in a career change.

I would say to contact the admissions office directly. Its the best approach, get the fact from the horses' mouth.

Its really the only way, I applied and attending the university and I had little experience. But it may be difficult to get a mba with little experience since the program is designed for experienced professionals.

Best of luck and simply call to get info!

Hi Guys,
There is a one year MBA program At Marshall Business School, USC (it's called IBEAR MBA). Does anyone has any idea about the program? The information at the website is quite impressive and so is the class profile...but what's the ground reality? :-)

Any inputs will be gratefully accepted.

Hult used to be called Arthur D. Little School of Management. It is fairly small and the new name is only 4 years old, hence lack of information on it. I went there - at the time only 48 students or so, but from all over the world (few US students). Good school, particularly if you are interested in international business/consulting. Lots of the faculty are from ADL and Monitor - so emphasis on consulting skills.

I've been reading through some posts dealing with 1-yr MBA programs in the US and I have not seen a single post on any site (B-week, here... okay, so that's only two sites...) that mentions Hult International Business School in Boston. Is there a reason for the obscurity or is this place the best-kept secret in MBA circles? I am very curious to hear opinions about this place. It is fairly well ranked in The Economist...

Hi,
In regards to the Hult one year MBA program
http://www.hult.edu/mba-program/our-program/curriculum

Like ibanker said, it's a recently renamed program and has been growing a lot in the last few years. It's only recently been ranked, see here:

Financial Times : http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/hult-international-business-school

Economist : http://mba.eiu.com/index.asp?layout=school_snapshot&mba_program_id=190471619&university_id=180471618&university_name=Hult+International+Business+School

Probably an up and coming program. Used to be only in Boston, but now they also have campuses in London, Dubai and Shanghai as well.

I think Columbia's accelerated program is actually 16 months, starts in January and ends in May. So it starts later, and then eliminates the summer internship portion of the normal program. I think it's mainly for those who don't need an internship.

Hey guys,

How about the International Management Program at Boston University? It is a 1-year (14 Months) MBA program at a good school in a great city. The first three months are taught in China (Beijing and Shanghai).

Has anybody heard of this program?

I was accepted last week and would like to hear some comments before taking a decision.

Cheers

Very few real good MBA programs will allow you to have no work experience upon entry. Further i don't believe you will really gain the full benefit from an MBA program without some real-world experience.

You are better off IMHO looking at Master of Management adn Master of Business degrees these are specifically targeted at guys with no work experience. Most are one year in length.

Hi Everyone,

I am in search of a good 1 year MBA course that's also affordable. I was looking through the Wall Street Journal's ranking for accelerated MBAs. I find Durham Business School in UK to be an interesting find - ranked 14th by wall street journal.
It ranks 74th globally in FT 2010 and 53rd in EIU 2009. It has accreditations from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. The university was established in 1832 while the business school started in 1960s.

It would be great to know your opinion about this school. Please help.

My math is very poor,thus I am afraid of the things.Second,some education company says the total one year tuition and fees is about $23,000,the per credit hour cost is $400 (for all ) ,however,the MCNY.com say per semester tuition is $1 3.000 (for 17 credits) ,and so only the cost for one year of 3 semester core courses is $39.000 ,except the room and board fees and others.I count the cost will be $50.000 in all.So I am afraid that the education company cheat me.Please tell me the truth and what is the total cost for the whole MBA programme on general management in one year.I am an international student who will live on campus.Thx.You are so generous and kindheart man.

Im sorry. let me clarify.

IF you attend Metropolitan College of New York MBA program which is located in New York City, USA, Metropolitan College of New York sends all students to Europe for free to learn International Business perspectives. In Europe, the European companies recruit the Metropolitan College of New York MBA students during those 12 days AND WHEN YOU come back to NY the Companies in NY recruit you, too. You pay tuiton to attend the Metropolitan College of NY MBA program, but you dont pay anything extra to attend the Europe field trip. That is free.

*******I disagree with you. I would know. NYU has a great reputation. But the competition is deep and you are competing with many other NYU students for the same job. Sometimes, patience is good. Sometimes it's not. And many international students, like yourself, won't get into NYU anyway.

Smaller colleges are easier to get into.
Small schools, at times do better than large schools getting you a real job in the career you studied for, because small schools like Metropolitan College of New York, are better at knowing the student, growing with the student, increasing networking opportunities, and many company's CEO's graduated from small schools too and then go back to these small schools to recruit students.
For an international student, I would not go to NYU or these big schools, because you will not get a job in the field. You will have to wait in line patiently as NYU and Colubmia graduate USA students and International students many hundreds of graduates every semester.

I have studied NYU and Metropolitan College of New York program's as I was accepted to both programs at the same time. One issue was money and NYU is not guarteeing me a job so....
I decided to go to Metropolitan College of New York, worked on a business plan & thesis, which is as close to practioner experience as you can get, and graduated in 1 year with an MBA in Media Managment. NYU would have taken me 2 years.

YOu need to research both schools, I suggest you look at the Professors at NYU teaching, see what are there accomplishments. THE PROFESSORS ARE THE ONES THAT GET YOU THE JOBS THROUGH NETWORKING AND CONTACTS IF THEY TRUE PRACTIONERS AND OWN COMPANIES AT THE SAME TIME THEY TEACH and have contacts.........I DOUBT THAT AT NYU, YOU ARE PAYING NYU FOR THE "NAME BRAND" NOT FOR THE QUALITY. YOU NEED QUALITY TO COMPARE.

Keep in mind you are an international student, I was an American student, those big schools graduate American students by the hundreds, and then international students behind that. You may get lost in the shuffle.

Small, schools you may get a chance to integrate yourself better and stand out.

THAT'S IT WITH MY ADVICE. SORRY, DAN.

Hi All,

I have got confirm admit to HULT London class of Sep-2010.

I believe that HULT is one of the most underrated programs with huge potential to unlock. I was quite apprehensive when I received an interview request, 3 months back, from HULT. Proactive approach of school seems suspicious, but turned out to be proof of their commitment to attract best possible talent.

In my last 3 months, I discovered many +ves abt school and ultimately decided to take admit. I am smitten by the school staffs attitude, supportive & encouraging. Always a pleasant & praiseworthy encounter .

Few of the highlights of HULT

1. A True Global School with 5 campuses
2. Diverse International Students
3. Faculty from best bschools around the world
4. Exciting Program/Initiative: Executive Track for High Potential Students
5. Value for Money

Above qualities with eagerness of HULT to carve a place among top programs makes it a worthy choice .

Thanks

Few days ago it came to my mind to do a 1 year MBA programm in the USA. I am not quite sure if this is possible with my educational background.
Do I need for all MBA-porogramms work experience? Would internships and sidejobs be sufficient?

By doing researched I have discovered the California International Business University. Does anybody know if this is a good university?

If you use the search function you'll find 158 accredited US one-year MBAs (http://www.find-mba.com/search/c3cdd439/1). MBAs which are not accredited by the respected bodies (AASCB in the US, AMBA and EQUIS elsewhere) are more or less worthless. MBAs will almost all require work experience, but that will normally include internships and part-time work -- although some schools look for higher-quality work. California International Business University does not have a respected accreditation. At the very least, look for a university with regional accreditation in the US (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_accreditation), which is like the German 'Staatlich anerkannte' status but AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA are the only internally respected accreditations for MBA programmes.

MBAs which are not accredited by the respected bodies (AASCB in the US, AMBA and EQUIS elsewhere) are more or less worthless. MBAs will almost all require work experience, but that will normally include internships and part-time work -- although some schools look for higher-quality work. California International Business University does not have a respected accreditation.

I agree with Duncan. The top 1-year programs in the US (Kellogg, Cornell, etc.) all require applicants to have either an undergraduate degree in bus/econ or a solid quantitate background. It makes sense really - under time pressure, the schools don't want to spend a ton of time on the elementary stuff.

To the OP: have you considered a European school? In Europe, the 1-year track is more standard than in the States.

Thank you for your help.
I have been doing some researches the last two days I found some universities, which offer one-year MBA programs for students, who dont have a Bachelor in business,
So far I have found the University of Kentucky, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Tampa, the Mercer University, the University of Toledo, the Rochester Institute of Technology, the UNC Charlotte, the Cleveland State University, the University of Baltimore, the Mississppi State University and the Canisius college in Buffalo. My favorites so far are the Canisius college, the University of cincinnati and the University of Kentucky.
What do you think about these universities?

No, I have not been considering in pursuing a one-year MBA degree in Europe. I have been dreaming about living in the US since I was 12 and dont want to stay any longer in Europe. I have actually planned to start working in the US after finishing university in the USA, but with a degree (even if it is equivalente to a Master degree) in Italian Philology and due ti the economy crisis it seems to be impossible to find a job in the US.

I agree - the FT rankings are a good go-to for the top global one-year MBA programs. But what I find interesting is that there have been some good developments in the US, where the idea of one-year MBA programs is gaining more traction.

Briefly:

I've heard a lot of good things about the Rochester Simon program - it starts in June and students can pursue concentrations as well.

Thunderbird's 11-month program is also pretty interesting - with a fall start date and decent salary stats.

I'd also look at the other BW-ranked business schools that offer one-year MBA programs: Florida/Hough, USC Marshall, Boston University, etc.

And of course there's the Kellogg MBA and the Cornell MBA - probably the best one-year MBAs in the US.

Thank you for pointing this out Ralph. I've been looking into the Thunderbird program - do you think it's worth taking on an internship or a concentration for the program's fourth term?

I think an internship, in general, can be very valuable, in that it gives you some hands-on experience. And you should only do a concentration if you want to change career direction or industry. But Thunderbird doesn't offer a whole lot of options - and they're mostly centered around international business, so if this is relevant to you, then yes, it is worth it. However, tacking on an internship and a concentration makes the program 21 months long - which is substantially longer than a normal one-year MBA program.

And how do you think it compares to the other 1 year MBA options that have been discussed here (specifically the ones in the US: USC, Cornell, or the Simon School, especially)?

I think that if you are interested or already involved in international business, Thunderbird is a good choice. But it really depends on your career aspirations: for finance, Simon or Cornell. For technology, USC. For consulting, Cornell.

Interesting, thanks for this info.

I hadn't looked closely at the concentrations - but you are right, there's all about international business!

I'm actually in marketing, and probably want to stay in marketing (and hopefully land a more strategic role.) So I may still consider Thunderbird, but are there other 1-year MBAs that might have a better focus? (in terms of placements.)

Maybe the IBEAR MBA at USC Marshall? Although you can't take one of their strong concentrations in marketing (as offered through their two-year MBA), you might pick a few electives from them.

Otherwise, Kellogg is the highest-ranked of all the US business schools offering a one-year MBA.

The Marshall School's Career Resource Center (CRC) provides support to all Marshall MBA students, including IBEAR self-sponsored participants.

The CRC provides career management training workshops, career advising, employer sponsored events, an extensive career resource library, a published resume book and electronic referral system, job postings, mock interviews, and on-campus recruiting.

IBEAR provides additional support, including e-mail mailings to IBEAR business friends, posting IBEAR participants' resumes on the IBEAR website, and providing access to the worldwide IBEAR alumni network. IBEAR also invites alumni and others to campus to talk about job search success factors

I think it depends on how much time you need for job hunting. If you don't need to search for a job, then the 12 month programme is great. But if you do, then 16 month programme will support you more fully.

Thank you both for your input. It would be nice to have a few more months to find a job, and since I'd like to be in New York I'm guessing Columbia is a good option.

However, since I do want to remain in consulting (rather than go into finance/investing) Kellogg also sounds like a good option. I will have to do some more research.

Nice thread...

In terms of 1 year MBAs, do you guys think that the Pepperdine 12 month program is better than the one at CSU Long Beach?

Pepperdine's probably got a larger alumni network, and most like has good relationships with a wider range of employers. However, it's a lot more expensive than the CSULB program.

You can usually get a sense of what career expectations are by contacting the schools' career services departments.

Just to reiterate points made earlier in this thread and elsewhere: 1 year MBA programs work best if you do not expect to make substantial post-degree industry or functional shifts. That's more the sphere of 2-year programs.
