norm in Europe. Although these programs are much less common in the United States,
has become increasingly attractive ─ ─ especially in the older, do not want to
spend two years learning among the students.

Few people outside assessment on such courses, one of the reasons is that they do not

we did not include some of the smaller, lesser-known high schools, as well as those

These schools to stand out because they provide a compact course, also adding the

Kellogg School of Northwestern University is ranking the highest ranked U.S.
business schools. According to students and alumni, these Ranking school graduates
to high-paying jobs also prepared, in the global business environment, to stand out.
The majority of respondents said that recruiters and managers to their degree and
two-year accelerated MBA degree in the same treatment.

Some short-scale

Of course, these programs are not for everyone. If you want a great help in changing
careers, MBA accelerated program may not be for you.

Many students complain that their job search service department did not try to help
them establish contact or to pave the way towards a new career. In addition,
sometimes there is not enough time for an internship or consulting project, which
means no links in a new company. Some students said the alumni networks were not
well developed, unlike the two-year project as a strong network.

However, for those who seek assistance to enhance their current career, or who
improve the skills required to enter a new industry people, MBA accelerated program
can have a certain job and salary enhancement. On average, alumni respondents
indicated that, in studying the basic pay before the MBA is the annual salary of
55,050 dollars. In the first job after graduation, the wage rose to 95,000 dollars. Two
years later, the alumni earn more than USD 110,000.

Economic buffer

In addition, many alumni said they felt the MBA degree in the economic downturn in
the protection of their career. June year from the Kellogg School of Business graduate
program in Ross (Justin Rose), I have a friend who was laid off, their jobs and the
same position before I graduated. When they interviewed for a new job, was told that
the company would only hire MBA.

All of this requires commitment to studies. Although the IMD study of its 6 days a
week, 100 hours per week is known, list most of the projects are rigorous course work.
Nearly two-thirds of students surveyed said that in addition to classes, they have to
spend 15 hours per week than do their homework.
