Summary List Placement
Traditional MBA programs typically involve investing two years of time and tuition. Given the commitment and cost — which can add up to six figures for a degree from a top-ranked program — it’s no wonder alternatives like executive MBAs, part-time MBA programs, and online MBAs are popular among busy executives and those hoping to break into a field fast.
Well, there’s another option to add to the list: The accelerated MBA — a full-fledged MBA degree packed into as little as 10 months. This alternative has been adopted by several well-ranked universities, such as Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, which debuted its one-year program 50 years ago. It’s also often available online, which can be a perk for people who need a more flexible MBA experience.
While there’s no standard defined time criteria as to what makes an MBA “accelerated,” they’re generally shorter than two years and can often be completed in 12 months.
Business Insider reached out to the faculty and alumni of accelerated MBA programs currently offered by well-ranked universities to learn more about what sets accelerated MBAs apart from their two-year counterparts.
