The Acton MBA is an accelerated program, which packs two years of coursework into single fast-paced year. Every day is a marathon, with students meeting for break-of-dawn study groups before class kicks off at eight o’clock in the morning. With its emphasis on discussion, “Class is incredibly intense; the professors are knowledgeable, and the students are incredibly well prepared.” On that note, there are roughly ten cases assigned every week, so you can reasonably expect “90-100 hours of case prep per week.” Fortunately, the rewards of the Acton MBA are well worth the effort. Despite the long hours, “Discussions and material make the days go by so fast. It really is a lot of fun once you get past the tough schedule.” Not to mention, the rigor itself is a great teacher; here, the curriculum is “so difficult and time-consuming that you are a different person after you finish.”
“Acton is run like a well organized company,” and overseen by a staff of 3 that is “very easy to work with and very efficient.” The “School administration is very responsive to problems” when they arise, treating students like valued customers. A case in point, all Acton instructors are required to sign a contract agreeing to step down if students are dissatisfied with their course. Students also appreciate the accelerated structure, which limits their educational expenses to a single year. Sure, you may sweat through it, but “The amount of education packed into one year is better than any 2 or 2+ year program in the country.”
