MBA shorter than 1 year


jorgeg

Hi everyone:

I am very interested in attending a Master / Certificate / Module on Business or Public Administration in the USA, but I would like it to last between 6 and 12 months, ideally 8 months.

I have other interests and I would not mind considering other graduate degrees, like on Leadership, Innovation, Public Administration.. but the biggest constraint is the time.

Could anyone recommend such a program, please?

Best regards,
Jorge

I suppose it depends on what you'd hope to get out of a program like that, in terms of your goals and expectations.

About the shortest time frame you could do an MBA is one year, and one-year MBA programs are relatively rare in the US. Schools like USC, Cornell - Johnson, Pittsburg - Katz, Kellogg... These schools offer one-year MBA programs, but be advised that they are for a particular kind of student: those who don't want to make large shifts in their career.

Other, shorter options might include a general management program: Harvard's GMP is delivered in four modules, both on-campus and off, over the course of five months. Columbia's General Management Leadership Program is less robust, but also less costly and time-consuming: it's only one two-week long module. Good program though.

For public administration focused courses, there are a number of shorter executive programs that you could potentially mix and match in order to surgically target your needs. For instance, the Brookings Institute offers a number of policy-type programs, one- or two-day type deals, many of which are aimed at federal employees, but some are more general. Here's a listing of those:

Rather than one year MBA two year is more comfortable to get a good job.
