MBA Duration for Harvard

Post Tue Jun 23, 2009 2:05 pm
Hi,

While short listing schools, I read somewhere that harvard MBA program is 18 months long. However, I saw their timetable online and it seems that it is a two year program.

Can anyone correct me ?

Thanks

Thank for the reply...

When Wharton and Stanford talk about their MBA duration, they include the vacation times as well...

From an MBA applicants prospective, MBA duration means the time for which (s)he will remain out of job and the money associated with it... In this case, INSEAD seems to be the best option... Not a better brand name than harvard but saves a lot of money...

Technically, if you count the number of months from September through May of each academic year of the program, you will arrive at 18 months. But most people consider it to be a two year program. Hope that helps!
