One Year MBA US b-schools


TMWNNM
Hi, I've been doing a bit of research on US business schools offering one year MBAs.

I understand from reading this board that these programs are not really a good fit for international students who want to work in the US.

But how about for American students who just want to save some time and money?

For instance I'm looking at the Cornell program. I'm especially interested in this one because I could do a concentration in marketing analytics. Concentrations seem to be less common for one year MBAs.

I am also considering the Kellogg program because I've heard a lot of good things for it.

If any body could comment on these two MBA programs and especially in terms of their fit for domestic students rather that international students that would be super. Thanks!

I think the pros and cons are the same: you have less time for job hunting so it's better for people who are accelerating rather than changing course.

For many MBAs, the summer between the 1st and 2nd year tends to be the time when they do internships, projects, etc., which can obviously help them land jobs after graduation. For one-year MBAs, they don't have this valuable time. That's not to say they're *bad* choices, just maybe designed for people who don't need the extra time or an internship.

Thank you both for the advice.

'...better for people who are accelerating rather than changing course.'

I'm not changing course exactly. I'd like to continue my marketing career but develop more skills in the analytics area (which will help me accelerate hopefully.)

Plus, having Cornell or Northwestern on my resume could help a lot I think.

Laurie, I understand your point about the internship. This would sadly be an element that I would have to go without if I did a one year program. I still haven't made up my mind yet but that's definitely a con.

The Cornell program has a Management Practicum which is similar to an internship.

Thanks for the post and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply. The management practicum looks interesting but I guess you have to juggle it with other classes, etc. I suppose it's better than not having something like this at all, but it's not really the same as a summer internship where you're solely focused just on the internship.

Indeed, but without a longer program, there would not be enough time to have a real 'internship' experience. If that's a factor for you I suggest doing a traditional two-year MBA.

Yes, I'd rather not but it's within the realm of possibility. Thanks for the advice.
