For working professionals and those with an undergraduate degree in business, an online one year MBA program is a logical choice. It will allow them to skip unnecessary reviews of business basics and delve right into the more complex topics that will adequately challenge them. In addition, as the one year MBA is only half as long as a typical MBA program, the tuition is much lower for the shorter program. For example, at Clarkson University , the tuition for a one year MBA program is approximately $10,819 less than the regular two-year MBA program. With financial aid, grants, and scholarships, you could incur even more savings.
Given the open-ended length, it is possible to cover more than one meaningful activity, project or accomplishment. However, the fact that HBS has been consistently trimming down its essay set in recent years likely indicates that a 1,000-word essay would be unwelcome. Moreover, it may be tempting to draft a lengthy essay on traditional subjects such as your career goals, greatest successes, and interest in the school; however, your need for an MBA or specific career goals may be adequately covered in your other materials. This should help to narrow your focus, select your topic and craft a succinct essay. You should take care to steer clear of simply “recycling” essays from HBS’s peer schools, such as Stanford or Wharton, as the adcom will probably spot such an essay based on the highly unfocused nature of the HBS prompt and will not respond positively.
We are moving to Germany from USA, got a nursing job at the US Military Hospital in Landstahl Germany. My son is a sophomore in University in USA and is very excited at the prospect of studying in Germany/Europe. We have been researching schools and found University of Maryland University College in Heidelberg Germany. Is this a reputable college? I don’t see it listed here, are there any other schools that offer degrees in Computer Science. It has to be a school where the medium of instruction is English. Would it be better for him to study in England? Otherwise I will have to find out a way of him staying back here and continuing his education.
