MBA Admissions Tip: Columbia Accelerated MBA
For many potential MBA students, taking two years off to attend a full-time program is not ideal. In which case, consider one of the accelerated MBA programs offered by Columbia, Kellogg, Cornell, or Emory.
The Columbia Accelerated MBA takes four consecutive terms to complete. For the coming year, students would begin in Jan 2008 and complete the program in May 2009. The program is a good choice for students who do not need to complete a summer internship. Thsi would include entrepreneurs, individuals returning to a family business, students sponsored by employers, and students who want to remain in their chosen field or who already have a strong network in their chosen field.
Columbia Business School uses rolling admissions for all of their programs. They began accepting applications for the Jan 2008 accelerated MBA on April 25 and will continue to accept applications until October 10. Applicants receive notification within 10 weeks of submitting their application. Columbia encourages interested students to apply sooner rather than later.
Next Monday we’ll look at the Kellogg accelerated MBA program which has some eligibility requirements.
