Accelerated MBA for business grad - other than Queens? [#permalink] New post 28 Feb 2010, 23:55
Looking for universities that are offering an accelerated program for people with an existing business undergraduate degree. I have come across Queens accelerated 1 year part time program, and like the idea. Any others in Canada, the US or international offering the same thing?

Thanks

I'm not aware of any 1 yr PT programs out there, but there are plenty of 1yr FT ones if that's an option for you. In the US: Columbia, Cornell and Kellogg; also most schools in Europe (Said, Judge, INSEAD, among many others).

Check out Dalhousie's Corporate Residency MBA. I'll be posting a more detailed thread about it once I gain the necessary credentials on this site... but the main points are in my signature. (I'm a current student, part of the first class; it's a brand new program).

I suppose signatures aren't always static, so I'll reiterate what it says:

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Length: 22 months
Tuition: ~$39,000 CAD

Features:

No work experience required
Designed by employers/corporations
8-month paid corporate residency embedded into curriculum (make back most of tuition costs)
A focus on soft skills that many MBA programs downplay/ignore

The main site is dalmba.ca, where you'll find up to date blogs and testimonials. a big part of the program is platformed on the idea of Fast Tracking one's career.

If you have any further questions I'd be happy to field them here or however else you'd like to get in contact (we have a Twitter feed and Facebook pages).

I hope this helps!

- Jordy

i think laurier has a pt mba program located in toronto? don't think it's 1 yr but if it's pt i don't think it matters as much.

also you can jointly take the cfa/cma while you're in the program i think. they've got great teachers for those. there's supposedly one guy who pretty much guarantees you pass the cma if you take his course lol.
