If you have any questions about schools listed here or to report program changes, please contact me.

Note that the vast majority of programs in the UK and Europe last for about one year. I have included only a few of these schools below.

One Year Programs

Northwestern
Cornell
Emory
Purdue (MSIA)
Notre Dame
Georgia
Florida
Case Western
Babson
Pittsburgh
Hult http://www.hult.edu/master/default.asp
Binghampton University(SUNY)
U of Alabama Birmingham MBA for Scientists
Temple (Fox) IMBA
Pepperdine
Monterey (Fisher) Advanced Entry
Syracuse University Accelerate MBA
RIT Fast Track MBA

Western Ontario (Ivey)
INSEAD
IMD
IE

ESADE (One Year MBA)
Vlerick Leuven Gent
Solvay Business
HKUST (12 month)
University College Dublin (Smurfit)
Trinity College Dublin
Copenhagen Business School
Helsinki School of Economics International MBA
BI Norwegian School of Mangagement
Stockholm School of Economics
University of Ottawa
Wilfrid Laurier [Canada]

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list but additions are certainly welcome.

Note that some one year programs place restrictions one who can participate (such as BSBA graduates or holders of technical degrees)

Northwestern: "Students who have earned an undergraduate business degree within the last seven years or completed an equivalent amount of related courses, training and experience are eligible."
http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/adm ... earmba.htm
Cornell is intended for holders of graduate science or engineering degrees
http://www.johnson.cornell.edu/academic/tmo/
Emory is intended for BSBA,BA/BS Bus Econ, and some special cases
http://goizueta.emory.edu/degree/oneyearmba/index.asp
Georgia is intended for BSBA holders
http://www.terry.uga.edu/mba/programs/eleven_month/
Case Western is intended for BSBA holders.
http://www.weatherhead.cwru.edu/mba/ft_11_month.html




Remember that most two year programs do not last 24 months - it is more usual to last 21 or so months (roughly September to June). In addition, do not forget that you can earn a considerable amount of money during an internship.

Another important point is that many schools have an "unofficial" early graduate track so that students can graduate early by taking courses during the summer between the first and second years or even the sumer before the first year. These measures can cut a few months off of graduation time.

Another option, especially at schools with integrated part-time programs, is freeing time during the day by taking courses in the evening. Some students take advantage of this flexibility by continuing to work at their internship firm. It is worthwhile to explore this option as a means of reducing the oppty cost of attending business school.

Other schools offer programs that come close to the one year mark:

SDA Bocconi (14 months)
British Columbia (15 months)
Rutgers MBA Professional Accounting
HHL Leipzig (15 months)

Also this list seems to be arranged according to perceived rankings...A very useful list indeed - especially for someone like me who has a limited budget and have taken a few graduate level courses in business....

It is interesting to note how the US one year programs are generally intended for students with a BSBA or another graduate degree. Constrast this with the European/UK programs such as Cambridge where only 26% come from Business, Economics, and Management undergrad degrees combined.

Florida's One Year Option A does appear to be a US one year program that is open to all majors.

Yes, Cranfield (like the vast majority of MBA programs in the UK) is a one-year program. I did not include Cranfield since I figured that most readers were aware that it was a one-year program but I can certainly add it to the list above. I am a bit confused by the phrase "even Cranfield" but that's just me . . .

How did the one-year program emerge in Europe?

One reason for a rejection of the two-year program in Europe was the fact that the first degree in Europe tended to take longer than the four year standard of the United States. Since European students had already been in school longer than their US counterparts, it did not make as much sense to require the same number of years in graduate business study.

A second reason for rejection of the two year program was to emphasize the fact that business school was inteneded to assist in the development of managers, not to produce full-fledged managers at the end of the program. A one year program would allow students to develop valuable skillls but still make it clear that much more learning would take place in the work force.

It should be noted that many US programs were effectively one-year programs at the time that INSEAD was founded. Accordingly, the one year masters has been with us for quite a long time.

Some schools viewed the masters in business as a one year specialist degree for students who had already studied business as an undergraduate. Other schools were very generous in their waiver policy so that a student with an undegrad degree in business could cut the time to complete the grad degree down to just one year.

For instance, in the late 1950s Pierson reported that about half of the students at Indiana, Washington University, and Wharton received their MBAs within one calendar year of beginning the program. For those interested, the Carnegie report provides an fascinating summary of business school practices in the post-war era.

Another example is Dartmouth program that essentially functioned as a 3-2 program in which students finished their business studies after one additional year of graduate level work.

Since it's been a while since this was updated, the change in Ivey's program hasn't been noted. Ivey has changed from a 2 year (16 month) program to a 1 year (12 month) program, effective with it's May 2006 intake.

Excellent point regarding Ivey. I have discussed the program in some PMs but have not had the time to update this list.

UW now offers a one year Global MBA for applicants with advanced standing and international work experience. Can't comment on the quality of the program because it just started last fall.

Most of the top schools mentioned here require either a undergraduate business background or an advanced degree for admission (specially in USA) . So it is important to first judge whether one is technically eligible to apply for these schools .

Seeing the above list and a little more research.. Is it that for US one year MBA programs (typically like Kellogg's) , an engineering background with decent number of work experience years is not eligible - as he is not equipped with their core courses / other undergrad business degree ?

If you’re intent on picking up your MBA in a single year, your options of attending one of the very best schools in the world narrow considerably. In the U.S., for example, only nine of the top business schools ranked by Poets&Quants offer one-year options. In Europe, where the 12-month degree is more common, there are far more opportunities to get a quickie MBA at a prestige school, from INSEAD to IE Business School in Madrid, Spain.
