Babson’s Olin Graduate School of Business, known for entrepreneurship, has begun offering a new “blended” MBA program out of San Francisco; the program combines a fast-track model with distance learning and will cater to an executive audience.
Lasting 24 months and opening in March 2010, the new program will combine periodic on-site meetings in San Francisco with online learning.
Fast-track programs are nothing new. However, an increasing number of these programs have sprung up in the past few years as prospective students have called for a greater number of flexible options that don't force them to take a two-year hiatus from the workforce.
