One year MBA vs two year MBA [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2005, 21:40
I am 27, Indian with 5+ years of consulting experience in Supply chain industry (GMAT: 720) .. I am inclined towards one year MBA programme, since that saves me a lot of money and time.. What are the pros/cons of doing one year vs two year MBA... What are good one year MBA schools where I should apply ?
I am aware of INSEAD, IMD .. Are there good one year MBA programs offered in US ? It will be great if anyone has a list of schools offering one year MBA programmes..

The main con to the one year program is for those trying to do a career change, since most don't allow for an internship. Naturally the pro is the cost savings.

Take a look at Kellogg, Cornell and Emory.

Thanks Scott !

Actually to be precise, I want to spend least time away from my family (we will be shifting to bay area soon..) .. So, heres what my thought process looks like..

1. Look for a one year MBA programme .. that leaves with me INSEAD, IMD.. I dont have any background in courses like finance, statistics, accouting.. so, I am keeping out Kellogg, Johnson (I assume they look for a solid background in above subjects..) .. Now, with a degree from europe, what are my chances of getting a job in US ? Are there significant US companies recruiting (and sponsoring H-1 as well) out there in INSEAD, IMD ..

2. Look for good schools in/around Bay Area.. That leaves me with Haas school Berkeley and Stanford.. Assuming I want to major in supply chain, ops, logistics industry, how good are these schools in this area .. Do you have any recommendations to which schools should I apply given my interest area (without considering my constraints) ?

Thanks for your time..

Getting a job in the U.S. with a European degree can be a lot harder. Companies in the U.S. still respect the degree, but cery few of them actually recruit at European schools, which means you will be on your own in terms of finding a job. I don't necessarily recommend getting a European MBA if you definitely want to get a U.S. job right out of school, but it can be done. It's just harder.

Stanford and Haas both make sense for you. For supply chain, also consider Broad (Michigan State) or Tepper (Carnegie Mellon).
