Factors like cost and salary loss as a student can be prohibitive for many potential MBAs. However, one solution may be shortening the amount of time it takes to earn the degree, which can reduce both the overall cost as well as the time without a full-time salary. Through accelerated or One-Year MBA programs, students can get all the benefits of an MBA degree in half the time.If you are looking to pursue an MBA in the Chicago metro area, one of the country’s top business and cultural hubs, you may want to opt for a one-year MBA program to keep costs low and get to graduation day even faster. Below, we’ve rounded up the best Chicago One-Year MBA programs.Kellogg School of Management – Northwestern University Liautaud Graduate School of Business – University of Illinois at ChicagoThe Liatuaud Graduate School of Business at the University of Illinois at Chicago, which consistently ranks among the top 25 percent of business schools across the country, offers students the option of earning their MBA in as little as one year through their full-time Accelerated Cohort Program. The accelerated program at Liautaud can be completed entirely on campus through daytime classes, focusing on building a strong peer network, and community of business leaders.The Liatuaud MBA focuses on the foundations of business and management, offering a 54 credit program composed of 26 credits of core courses. The core curriculum is comprised of: corporate finance, financial accounting, marketing, microeconomics, operations management, enterprise strategy, and organizational behavior.Northern Illinois University College of BusinessThe Northern Illinois University College of Business offers a One-Year MBA designed for students to enhance their skills in communication and leadership over the course of 12 months. The program focuses particularly on collaboration, encouraging teamwork by having each year’s cohort begin together and take the same courses together throughout the year. Students will also participate in the One-Year MBA Capstone Project—a live case competition that challenges students to develop a business plan for a real company and with a real business situation.“The decision to choose NIU’s One-Year MBA program was a very simple one,” said Northern Illinois alum Jennifer Rave.  “Not only is it one of the most affordable programs in the area, but the lockstep program that allows you to develop life-long relationships with your professors and peers is just as appealing.”last_img
