1-year MBA programs in U.S. [#permalink] New post 07 May 2010, 13:37
Interested in some feedback about 1-year MBA programs in the U.S. (Kellogg, USC, Cornell, Ross, etc), particularly from people who recently graduated. How is the 1-year "accelerated" program viewed by employers vs. the 2-year program from the same school (same degree, less coursework, but same value?). Are the career opportunities generally the same - participating in career events, getting interviews, salary offers, etc.? Did you have sufficient time to network and make lasting connections?

Interested in switching careers, so I understand an internship is valuable. I have 6+ years of consulting experience, so this should help somewhat make a career transition.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Given that you're a career switcher, you will likely benefit from a 2 year program. I understand that a one year program has a lower opportunity cost, but in the US these are generally recommended for people with experience in their post-MBA chosen field, who don't need an internship (and schools in the US will likely want to know that is the case before they admit you).

ps: btw Columbia has an accelerated program as well, but I didn't think Ross did.
