We believe as long as the top MBA programs remain dynamic and continue to provide a strong ROI, they will not have much to fear. Two years has proven to be a good break for many graduates from the workforce so they can internally focus on their career goals and work hard to provide a good transition to a new career path. For those who are looking for advancement within their current field, the one-year option has similarly proven to be a rewarding path. Other options, we believe, won’t satisfy the impatience many MBA students seem to have to expeditiously complete the educational hurdle and we’re not sure how employers will feel about employees who are taking significant amounts of time over significant lengths of time to round out their formal business education. (Which, we believe, explains why the part-time MBA did not surpass the full-time MBA years ago.)
