The Babson MBA One-Year program, ranked among the top One-Year MBA programs by Poets & Quants (2012), leverages your undergraduate business education to deliver an accelerated format of our recently revamped curriculum.
One-Year program classes begin in May, and you’ll complete your degree requirements by the following May.

The curriculum is delivered through three main buckets:

  • Core: Three modules taught during 12 weeks (May through August)
