One Year MBA option


Moemen

Hi,
I'm searching for one year MBA in the US. I have found some of them ranked in many sources such as: Forbes, FT, economist?etc. I came up with University of Pittsburgh (Katz business school) and University of Florida (Warrington Business School). Both offer strategy concentration which I like to pursue after graduation. So I would like to know about the following:
?Do both have good reputation?
?Can one year MBA help me find a job after graduation? Or should I go for 2 year MBA.

Info about my background: Industrial Engineer with 10+ experiences in operation and consulting field in continues improvement. Grade: ?good 68%? with Post grade diploma in Management with grade ?A?. Actually I do not know if universities in the US recognize those diplomas as some UK universities offer them as post graduate program.

If you want to work in strategy consulting in the US, then you will need a two year MBA from one of the schools that strategy consultancies do most of their recruitment from.

Can you help me with reputable universities or programs for strategy or operation management/Supply Chain Management?
In your opinion, what is the risk in 1-year option for international student like me?

thanks in advance

I can't recommend a one year programme if you want to work in the US.

The risks are that since you probably won't be able to do an internship or consulting project, you will be very limited in your networking, and you won't have that critical experience to show to potential employers.

There are a lot of good US programs for supply chain/operations - but they're all two-year programs: just for comparison's sake check out the curriculum and internship options in programs like Smeal, Purdue, and Georgia Tech.
