A Guide to 1-Year MBA Programs

One-Year or Accelerated MBA programs are generally designed for recent graduates and working professionals with significant business experience. Accelerated programs are usually offered as full-time programs or as five-year programs in combination with an undergraduate degree.

At MetroMBA, we know that life factors–family, location, career, finances–are all crucial considerations in your decision to attend business school. So we’ve put together the following list of MBA programs, organized by metropolitan area for your browsing convenience, that are designed to be completed within 12 months or a bit more. Unlike other guides of this kind you’ll find on the web, our guide doesn’t list for-profit online programs. We list only high-quality, accredited, brick-and-mortar MBA programs.

You can also check out our other compilations, including our Guide to MBA Programs that Don’t Require the GRE or GMAT and Guide to MBA Programs that Don’t Require Work Experience.
