MBA In A Year

"For me, the one-year option is the most convenient for getting into the workforce faster than my potential future competition in the business arena. I view it as an opportunity to further sharpen and hone in on skills I have already acquired in my undergraduate education. Undergrad gave me iron; now I'm trading it in for steel." Paul
