One-year MBA programs versus two-year MBA programs

The traditional two-year MBA program generally comprises two academic periods of nine-months each with a summer break between them. The summer is generally spent in an internship.

The one-year MBA is quite the norm in Europe with the INSEAD MBA in lead. While two-year MBA programs remain popular in the US, there are a few business schools offering the 1-year option along with the traditional two-year program.

On the other hand, you are a non-business major who is...
