So that's a great point - it might help to distinguish between what a school records and what you report. So on a transcript, almost all programs will denote, in SOME way, that you attended the 1 year program. They have to for their own records purpose. If they didn't, that would just be really confusing. However, externally (i.e. resume), most don't require it. Cornell, for example, doesn't require it. This is directly from their website:
Q: Is your One-Year MBA recognized as equivalent to a two-year MBA?
A: Yes. In fact, we offer four ways to earn a Cornell MBA. The differences among our MBA programs reflect the varying backgrounds and needs of the students. All result in a rigorous general management education that prepares MBAs for leadership roles.
So even though the school will record it as an AMBA or 1-year or whatever, what you report will still just list a Masters from Cornell. Similar to part time or weekend programmers, for instance. No one on a resume states, "Part-Time MBA from School X" - that would be just as awkward as if someone wrote "2-Year Full Time MBA from School X".
