I got a strange phone call from an admissions officer at University of Texas at Dallas. Because my GMAT score was a 730, they asked if I was interested in applying to their "Honors" MBA Program, a 15-month "fast track" program.

Besides the shorter time-frame, have you heard of an "Honors" MBA Program before, and if so, would it be worth the extra work and intensity compared to a normal MBA?

Thanks.

I've certainly heard of the idea before. It seems somewhat similar to the development of "honors programs" at the undergraduate level which are often an effort by lower ranked universities to attract desirable students by offering special classes and more contact with professors. It is hard to say whether these programs are worth the effort since there are relatively few of them. I do think it is something worth exploring further.

Thanks Hjort. I must say it appeals to one's ego to be called "superior", but then I remind myself that a GMAT score, like the SAT/ACT, only measures one's potential in a certain format.

Sweat and ingenuity make the real reward.
