While the Columbia accelerated MBA has no eligibility requirements, the Kellogg program is designed for students who completed an undergraduate business degree. However, the admissions committee will review applicants on a case-by-case basis. Students in the one year program will begin at Kellogg in June and take coursework the complements their undergraduate business studies. Then they join the second year class from the traditional Kellogg two year program. Kellogg emphasizes the flexibility of this program and says it is “designed to enable applicants with clear and consistent career goals to return to the work force quickly.”
The admissions deadlines for the Kellogg one year program are the same as the two year program, but the admissions committe requests one year candidates apply by the second deadline.
