Louisiana State University Launches One-Year MBA

New accelerated MBA program open to undergraduate business majors

Louisiana State University's Ourso College of Business (LSU Ourso) has announced the launch of a new one-year MBA program. 

The new program is aimed that those who have received an undergraduate degree in business. Although work experience is not required, the school says that it prefers that candidates have two years of experience.

Since MBA students armed with an undergraduate degree in business presumably have an essential understanding of business concepts, most of the program's core curriculum requirements are waived. This allows students to focus primarily on their interests and career paths during the one-year degree.

The program will begin in June. During the summer, students will attend a “pre-MBA” session which focuses on an MBA Foundations course, plus another course on professional development and communication.

Other than an undergraduate degree in business, potential one-year MBA candidates should also submit a GMAT or GRE score. A GMAT score of 600—or a GMAT score of 315—is preferred.

Although one-year MBA programs are rare in the US, an increasing number of business schools are offering them. The shortened programs allow students to quickly skill-up, but usually don't include a summer internship.

To apply for the 2019 LSU one-year MBA intake, applicants should apply by May 15.
