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!!!

Sounds obvious, but the 2 year programs are going to have a more in-depth curriculum, allowing you to dive deeper and wider into business and management concepts. The one year programs are more limited in scope. Since you have your own company, however and you plan to keep doing that, a one year program could be just the ticket for you, since you won't have to worry about competing for jobs with other 2 year MBA candidates, who may in some cases, edge out a one year MBA grad.

Thank you for the response!
To understand this better, the 1 year program is suitable for people who want to return to their same company/industry, whereas the 2 year program is suitable for people looking for a career change?

essentially, that's a good way to think about it in my opinion. If you were going to be competing with other MBA job applicants amongst the various recruiters, I would say the full time 2year programs might give you an edge, but if you are not changing careers, or are continuing with your own business, then the one year programs can be an efficient option. At the end of the day, it just says MBA on your resume, not 1-year MBA, so down the road, you should still have the same marketability.
