One-Year MBA Program

The Zicklin One-Year MBA offers the same academically challenging, real-world curriculum as the Full-Time and Evening MBA programs, in an accelerated format. The One-Year MBA is designed to better meet the needs of certain professionals who possess relevant academic preparation in fundamental business knowledge along with adequate professional experience and skills in business practice.

Enrolling its first cohort in Summer 2017, the Zicklin One-Year MBA offers the same academically challenging, real-world curriculum as the Full-Time and Evening MBA programs, in an accelerated format. The One-Year MBA is designed to better meet the needs of professionals who possess relevant academic preparation in fundamental business knowledge along with adequate professional experience and skills in business practice.

The One-Year MBA is a 42-credit degree that is completed in 12 consecutive months beginning in June.

Is this Program for you?


Zicklin’s One-Year MBA program is for those who already have an undergraduate business degree from an ac­credited business program and have acquired significant work experience (2-5 years) in business-related func­tions or positions, such as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, IT, and business consulting. The pro­gram is ideal for professionals seeking to accelerate, rather than change, their career. As a prospective student, you will be expected to handle an intense class schedule and academic learning.

Against the backdrop of the vibrant business environment of New York City, you’ll enjoy incomparable career-building and networking opportunities, including access to industry mentors and alumni groups, participation in the program’s management consulting practicum, and exposure to a diverse cohort of highly motivated classmates.
