There are many ways to categorize programs in order to find the right fit. At MBA Central, we focus on value. Some choose to only focus on prestige and others on price, but by weighing both, students can find a balanced MBA that gives great value.
“One factor that can get overlooked when researching possible future MBAs is the amount of time it takes to finish a degree program,” suggests Tammie Cagle, Editor of MBA Central. Whether it is an on-campus or online program, fast completion time can be of great benefit.
A quick completion time allows students to not only obtain critical business leadership knowledge but also retain it. By putting knowledge into practice, students are more likely to use and expand on the information they receive in their MBA classes. Thus, quick completion times can inherently increase value.
Each of the programs in this ranking allows students to finish their degree in a very fast paced and driven environment.
MBA Central is an editorially unique b-school ranking and resource site. As higher education researchers and businessmen and women ourselves, we have striven to provide rankings and insights into selecting a business school and pursuing your career.
