BABSON mba One-Year Program 

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)
  • Signature Learning Experiences: Simulations, action-learning projects, and self-reflection
  • Electives: Courses across multiple disciplines as well as nontraditional electives, including consulting projects, independent research, and more

In order to qualify for the One-Year program, candidates should have an undergraduate degree in business or economics, or have a proven foundation in the business disciplines listed below. If a candidate does not have an undergraduate business or economics degree with foundational work in the disciplines below, the Admissions Committee will take under consideration significant professional experience with exposure to disciplines such as financial analysis, operations and logistics, strategic analysis, marketing, finance, or accounting.

Due to the accelerated nature of the program, qualification for the One-Year MBA Program requires demonstrated educational or practical foundation in Accounting, Finance, Statistics, Strategy, Operations, Economics, and Marketing.

Tuition and costs are reflective of 40.5 credits for degree completion.
