Cal State East Bay MBA Program Among Fastest MBAs in U.S.

In a ranking from MBACentral.org, the university was listed as No. 15 of the Top 50 nationwide

Cal State East Bay has one of the fastest MBA programs in the country. According to a new ranking from the site, MBACentral.org, the university’s MBA program was listed as No. 15 of the Top 50 Fastest MBAs.

The list of MBA programs taking one year or less to complete was examined to find the fastest degree programs with the most value. Information was compiled from the most recent and publicly available sources, including the Princeton Review, U.S. News and World Report and the National Center for Education Statistics.

Cal State East Bay is the only CSU on the list and one of only two colleges and universities in California.

"One factor that can get overlooked when researching possible future MBAs is the amount of time it takes to finish a degree program," said Tammie Cagle, editor of MBA Central in a statement. “Whether it is an on-campus or online program, fast completion time can be of great benefit. A quick completion time allows students to not only obtain critical business leadership knowledge but also retain it. By putting knowledge into practice, students are more likely to use and expand on the information they receive in their MBA classes. Thus, quick completion times can inherently increase value.”
