New program can now be completed in 12 months

The Thunderbird School of Global Management has announced that it will launch a redesigned MBA curriculum starting this fall.

The most significant change in the full-time MBA program is that it can now be completed in as little as 12 months. If students choose to pursue an internship as well, the program takes 15 months to complete; and with an added concentration it takes 21 months.

The program will now be delivered in modules which are based around themes. There are seven modules, which generally cover action-based learning topics: One is called "Navigate Complex Initiatives," another is "Deliver Value across Borders."

According to a Thunderbird press release, the program was redesigned to build skills that employers are looking for, and the new courses "model how a manager thinks and acts."
