A typical 1-year MBA could be a viable option for students who cannot afford to stay away from job for 2 fulltime years ! Also it could be a good decision in these times when the world is experiencing the ripple effects of economic downturn.
In most of the B-Schools, 1-year MBA program expects the students to have the necessary professional work experience & the ability to complete the rigorous curriculum successfully. These programs lengths can typically range from 10 months to 16 months at times, depending on the course curriculum designed by the respective B-School. Due to the intense nature of the program, students may not be able to do any internships or part-time jobs during the course. But at the same time, one can complete the degree in 1 year & save a considerable cost too !
As it is a well-known fact that majority of the B-Schools offer fulltime 2 year MBA degree, one year MBA is already a well established model in Europe (including the UK). Though GMAT is compulsory in most of the B-School in USA, it may not be required in Europe or UK. Some B-Schools may conduct the interview of the candidate to understand the goals of the candidates.
