The University of Illinois at Chicago's Liautaud Graduate School of Business announced its plans to offer a new accelerated MBA program.
The Cohort MBA Program (CMBA) is a one-year degree and will be based in Chicago. Compared to the traditional full-time MBA program which typically lasts over 16 to 21 months in a two-year format, this program is more intensive and requires a more demanding course load.
Students can choose between two concentrations : Financial Markets and Risk Management (FMRM) or Strategic and International Business Management (SIM).
The program for the FMRM track begins in May 2014 and the SIM track in August 2014.
