American University's new cut at MBAs

Many college grads think they need an MBA to get a job, but then wonder--is this even a way to get a job anymore?

So American University's Kogod School of Business has redesigned its program to reflect 21st century realities.

They are combining opportunity and experience. It's a 21-month program with a solid business core--surrounded by electives aimed at consulting and other sub-interests.

The emphasis will be on where public, private and nonprofit worlds connect.

There will be two-week "signature" courses.

For those already working, there will be morning course options--say 7 am to 10 am. This could be accompanied by online learning.

There was some other jargon about "purpose driven individuals" which I tuned out, but this sounds worth checking out.
