Hi Everyone, Here are select questions specific to 1yr MBA that were asked in last week's Cornell chat. Full chat transcript can be downloaded here.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... l#p1919758

Q: Hi guys, how different is the one year prog from the 2 year?
Eddie: The one year MBA program is a more condensed version of the 2 year MBA program. The one year MBA program starts usually around May with the core classes beginning and goes all the way to the next year.


Q: Who should apply for one year?
Lindsay: Professionals with significant experience and advanced degrees or certifications (listed below) are eligible to apply. Professional certifications and/or advanced degrees may be awarded credits at the start of the program. We encourage you to Check your Eligibility for the program and if you have any questions or would like to gain a deeper understanding of the One-Year MBA, please schedule an Admissions Consultation with a team member.


Q: What percentage of your 1 year MBA candidates are typically seen to be triple shifters - in terms of geography, industry and job function? Would you say that the 2 year program is better conducive if I was looking to use my MBA to help myself with a triple shift, maybe?
Chelsea: Good question. The One-year program is structured typically for career enhancement and the Two-year MBA is tailored more for career / industry changers.


Q: Do recruiters prefer two year mba grads over one year?
ec785: Recruiters do not prefer the two year MBA over the one year MBA. Both degrees are exactly the same on your resume and the curriculum is very similar. You should look to do which program fits your needs better based on the point in your career and life.

Q: Hello, I am a curious about the one year MBA program. I started my career in public accounting and am currently working in private equity. My goal is to make a switch from accounting to management consulting. Would it be difficult for me to meet this goal if I chose to apply to the one year program over the two.
ec785: My background is actually quite similar and I have successfully made the transition into management consulting. The consulting firms do not have a preference over the 1 year vs. 2 year MBA program. The curriculum is very similar with the exception that the one year program is much more accelerated. You will not be at any disadvantage if you apply to the one year MBA.


Q: Is the Park fellowship offered to one year MBA’s or is this solely for the two year program. If it is not offered to one year MBA’s, is there a similar opportunity?
Chelsea: The Park Fellowship is for Two-year MBA students. We do offer merit based scholarships for One-year MBA students


Q: If I apply for 2 year MBA and One Year MBA/Tech would that count against my application?
Eddie: You are only allowed to apply to one of our MBA programs.

Hi Gmatclub members,

I'm having slight trouble deciding between the two 1 year MBA programs offerred by Cornell. Would be great if someone could provide a bit more clarity on this.

Professionally, I'm a product manager at an ecommerce startup and plan
to remain in product management, but move to the fintech/edtech space after MBA. In the long term I plan to move to Venture Capital. I have also been an entrepreneur in the edtech space and am an engineer.

Questions:

1. Looking at my goals which one of these programs do you think I more suited to my needs?
2. My long term goal is to move into Venture Capital. For this purpose, do you think it would be better if I apply to the more holistic general 1 year program at Ithaca?
3. How did prospective applicants here decide between the two 1 year MBA programmes offerred by Cornell?
4. Is there a possibility of spending a semester at the NYC campus with the Tech MBA grads for students who have enrolled in the general 1 year MBA program at Ithaca?

Any other pointers would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

I would recommend you to connect with current students and alumni regarding your goals. If you can, visit campus and do your research on the program.

Submitted application on Nov 15. Still in 'submitted' status. Hopefully, they will not be reviewing anything this week because of the Thanksgiving holidays.
