which program? [#permalink] New post 16 Oct 2011, 10:39
Hello,
I am confused whether I should apply to a 1 year or the traditional 2 year program. I have around 3 years of entrepreneurial experience, and would be returning to my business. What's the difference between the 2 programs?
Also, Should I pursue the general MBA or an international MBA or a dual degree?
Thanks!!!

A 1-year MBA program is intense but gets you back into the market much more quickly. Since you are returning to your own company, you do not need an internship, so a 1-year program does make sense for you. If your goals and markets are international, then an internationally focused MBA will be important to you, but a dual degree is only necessary if you are specializing in a unique niche that requires additional education in public health or law or engineering, for example.

that helps a lot! thanks!
so career changers would definitely go for the 2 year program?
Even though dual degrees might be for niche jobs, it can only help my case as well, right?

Applicants need to demonstrate that the dual degree makes sense given their backgrounds and goals. This proof of need for and fit with a given degree is even more challenging to do for a dual degree, since it is a specialized position that spans two worlds.
Career changers generally need an internship opportunity, which most 1 year programs preclude.
