In the US that would be NU Kellogg, Cornell, Mich Ross, DePaul, USC, UCLA. In Europe 1-year programs are more common. Check out Tanaka, INSEAD, ESADE --- there are many more recognized programs here.

Cornell 1 yr is for someone with Graduate degree in a Tech discipline (engineering, computer science, etc) otherwise you dont qualify for admission

Michigan, USC,UCLA 1 yr programs are Executive MBAs requiring multiple years of managerial level work experience.

From your list only Northwestern has a 1yr program where you can get in with at least 3 years of work experience. Very very tough getting into...

The only other respectable/good school offering 12 month regular MBA with 2 years work experience is the University of Florida.

this might be a tough one, but does anyone know of a 12 month MBA with specific specialization in Equity Valuation/Investment Management?

Every schools offers, courses, etc, but I want that specialization shown on my diploma.

you can do MBA/Msc Investment Management
at HONG KONG UST in about 16 months.

In that time you can exchange to Columbia,NYU, Chicago or Berkeley and take their elective courses.

I do not know of any other well known school offering such a combination

Metropolitan College of New YOrk offers a great 1 year MBA program. In fact, if you go to this school, all students go to Europe, London, Paris, etc. as part of the international seminar on global business.

Apart from the exchange possibilities, what makes this MBA so special? I'm curious because I have not heard about the MBA you mention (but that doesn't mean much, I don't know much about US MBAs).

Jona. You are asking what makes the Metropolitan College of New York Special?

1) Well you travel to Europe for 12 days with your classmates and professors and study internationa business there for free if you go to this school. No other school does that.

2) You do an actual "Constructive Action" Project and Thesis. Constructive Actions means your class will set up a real and original business plan, put the plan to work, make the business and evaluate it or improve on a real company's business plan, that collaberates with the school to market the plan. No other school does that. All the other schools do is only teach you a course from a book. That won't get you a job, because you will have no experience. You need experience & and MBA to put on your resume and metropolitan College of New York does that for you.
www.mcny.edu/business/mba_general.php

2) I would say this: The professors teaching you the courses are actual MBA practioners which means they either are CEO's of real businesses or own there own companies. You should look at who is teaching you. For example, at NYU, they don't tell you who is teaching you. Its probably a professor from another department teaching you a course he really doesn't know anything about. Metropolitan College of New York tells you upfront who are the professors that will teach you. You can see the professors profile in the website and all there business accomplishments and verify it. Look at the professor accomplishments yourself. www.mcny.edu/business/mediafaculty.php
They keep updating the list and its always Professors with advanced degrees AND business Accomplishments.

I did not understand you in all your points I'm afraid.
A stay in Europe in order to study in a different environment, certainly is a valuable experience. But what do you mean by "you... study international business there for free if you go to this school. " ? Is the MBA for free, no tuition?

Besides, I don't think it's any true that "all the other schools do is only teach you a course from a book" - on the contrary, a good MBA is conceived to be close to real life, your experience is taken into account, and the goal is to prepare you to perform as a practitioner, in a management job, not in a scientific career.

What is certainly NOT true is that in NYU "Its probably a professor from another department teaching you a course he really doesn't know anything about."

I wonder where you got these ideas? The MBA you describe might have its qualities, but the arguments you give here don't convince me.

Im sorry. let me clarify.

IF you attend Metropolitan College of New York MBA program which is located in New York City, USA, Metropolitan College of New York sends all students to Europe for free to learn International Business perspectives. In Europe, the European companies recruit the Metropolitan College of New York MBA students during those 12 days AND WHEN YOU come back to NY the Companies in NY recruit you, too. You pay tuiton to attend the Metropolitan College of NY MBA program, but you dont pay anything extra to attend the Europe field trip. That is free.

*******I disagree with you. I would know. NYU has a great reputation. But the competition is deep and you are competing with many other NYU students for the same job. Sometimes, patience is good. Sometimes it's not. And many international students, like yourself, won't get into NYU anyway.

Smaller colleges are easier to get into.
Small schools, at times do better than large schools getting you a real job in the career you studied for, because small schools like Metropolitan College of New York, are better at knowing the student, growing with the student, increasing networking opportunities, and many company's CEO's graduated from small schools too and then go back to these small schools to recruit students.
For an international student, I would not go to NYU or these big schools, because you will not get a job in the field. You will have to wait in line patiently as NYU and Colubmia graduate USA students and International students many hundreds of graduates every semester.

I have studied NYU and Metropolitan College of New York program's as I was accepted to both programs at the same time. One issue was money and NYU is not guarteeing me a job so....
I decided to go to Metropolitan College of New York, worked on a business plan & thesis, which is as close to practioner experience as you can get, and graduated in 1 year with an MBA in Media Managment. NYU would have taken me 2 years.

YOu need to research both schools, I suggest you look at the Professors at NYU teaching, see what are there accomplishments. THE PROFESSORS ARE THE ONES THAT GET YOU THE JOBS THROUGH NETWORKING AND CONTACTS IF THEY TRUE PRACTIONERS AND OWN COMPANIES AT THE SAME TIME THEY TEACH and have contacts.........I DOUBT THAT AT NYU, YOU ARE PAYING NYU FOR THE "NAME BRAND" NOT FOR THE QUALITY. YOU NEED QUALITY TO COMPARE.

Keep in mind you are an international student, I was an American student, those big schools graduate American students by the hundreds, and then international students behind that. You may get lost in the shuffle.

Small, schools you may get a chance to integrate yourself better and stand out.

THAT'S IT WITH MY ADVICE. SORRY, DAN.

I've been reading through some posts dealing with 1-yr MBA programs in the US and I have not seen a single post on any site (B-week, here... okay, so that's only two sites...) that mentions Hult International Business School in Boston. Is there a reason for the obscurity or is this place the best-kept secret in MBA circles? I am very curious to hear opinions about this place. It is fairly well ranked in The Economist...

Ross is not a 1 year program (for a mention before), some schools also offer an intensive track (like LBS).

In general, the US traditional MBA is two years, and this will not change. I believe that for many people the 1 year program is better because they do not want to be out of the work for a longer period, and also many companies prefer that their employers enrol a 1Y because they have higher changes of them to come back to the company. Despite all of these, for instance, many MBAs at Insead have criticized the program for to be too intensive in a short period of time (10 months) and not be able to success in a career change.

Hi all,

well.. there were many things said, so I will just add a bit of what i´ve found so far.
there are many good 1 year MBAs most of them in Europe, and pretty cheap - compared to the US ones.. so . i´d suggest you to do a small search.. if u still want an MBa...
cheers

I would say to contact the admissions office directly. Its the best approach, get the fact from the horses' mouth.

Its really the only way, I applied and attending the university and I had little experience. But it may be difficult to get a mba with little experience since the program is designed for experienced professionals.

Best of luck and simply call to get info!

Hi Guys,
There is a one year MBA program At Marshall Business School, USC (it's called IBEAR MBA). Does anyone has any idea about the program? The information at the website is quite impressive and so is the class profile...but what's the ground reality? :-)

Any inputs will be gratefully accepted.

Hult used to be called Arthur D. Little School of Management. It is fairly small and the new name is only 4 years old, hence lack of information on it. I went there - at the time only 48 students or so, but from all over the world (few US students). Good school, particularly if you are interested in international business/consulting. Lots of the faculty are from ADL and Monitor - so emphasis on consulting skills.

I've been reading through some posts dealing with 1-yr MBA programs in the US and I have not seen a single post on any site (B-week, here... okay, so that's only two sites...) that mentions Hult International Business School in Boston. Is there a reason for the obscurity or is this place the best-kept secret in MBA circles? I am very curious to hear opinions about this place. It is fairly well ranked in The Economist...

Hi,
In regards to the Hult one year MBA program
www.hult.edu/mba-program/our-program/curriculum

Like ibanker said, it's a recently renamed program and has been growing a lot in the last few years. It's only recently been ranked, see here:

Financial Times : rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/hult-international-bu…

Economist : mba.eiu.com/index.asp?layout=school_snapshot&mba_program_id=…

Probably an up and coming program. Used to be only in Boston, but now they also have campuses in London, Dubai and Shanghai as well.

I think Columbia's accelerated program is actually 16 months, starts in January and ends in May. So it starts later, and then eliminates the summer internship portion of the normal program. I think it's mainly for those who don't need an internship.

Hey guys,

How about the International Management Program at Boston University? It is a 1-year (14 Months) MBA program at a good school in a great city. The first three months are taught in China (Beijing and Shanghai).

Has anybody heard of this program?

I was accepted last week and would like to hear some comments before taking a decision.

Cheers
