1-year MBA Programs


Duncan

I think NPV is more appropriate than RoI for judging this: http://marketinggovernance.com/?p=383

Lindner looks like a programme without serious careers support. Is the MBA mainly serving part-time students? When would the internship happen, and how is it sourced?

Hi Duncan,Ezra,Ralph. What do you think of University of Cincinnati -Lindner's 1 year MBA program(with internship -16 months) ? Considering the location,Cincinnati would be a good choice. Also,it's one of the top schools from ROI perspective in US. Thanks..

What are your career goals?

Like Duncan, I'd be highly critical of career support, especially if you're an international student. Contact them and ask them about what kind of support you'd receive, where other graduates end up, etc. (The business school's career services page is actually down right now, that's not a good sign.)

I asked Career Services about 3 weeks back for detailed employment stats.I am yet to hear from them. They only say most students found jobs at graduation. I spoke to a couple of current students. They said overall although the salaries are less(56K-60K), most students, even international students found jobs .People find jobs thru networking and thru career service events. Most study full time,although a few take course part time.

I suggest you speak to some of those international students. See
http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-business-schools/university-of-cincinnati-lindner-01177 where it seems that only 69% find work.

Also, it seems that 58% students in recent years have been part-time. http://www.princetonreview.com/schools/business/BizBasics.aspx?iid=1011109

Duncan,
Thanks.. I will talk to them again.
Between U of Cincinnati and San Francisco State University.. Which program according to you is better for an international student going for full time MBA.? Princeton Review shows 75% employed at graduation and 90% [3 months] at SFSU... I intend to work for a few years in the US to payback loans.

If you ever hear back from the school with detailed employment stats, be sure to report back - I think a lot of applicants would be interested in these as well.

I can't make up my mind between these programs:

Northwestern - Kellogg (1-year MBA)
- June start
- around $80k tuition

Columbia 16 month MBA
- 16 months
- January start
- No fellowship support

Any advice?

what are you goals

Both of the schools are the in the elite group of MBA. Kellogg is geared towards consulting while Columbia to finance and investment.

Otherwise I see no difference because both are non-traditional MBA programs

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.
