Introducing P&Q Live, Our Weekly Podcast


What are the pros and cons of a one-year MBA program?

How hard do MBAs really work and how many hours do they put in at major employers of MBA talent?

Can a 27-year-old analyst at a boutique consulting firm that does litigation support work get into a highly selective business school?

In Poets&Quants’ debut podcast, Founder and Editor-in-Chief John A. Byrne tackles these three stories in the first of what will be a weekly podcast starting today (June 24). Every Friday morning, Poets&Quants will release a new 30-minute-long show.

P&Q Live with Poets&Quants’ founder and editor John A. Byrne

In this week’s first segment on one-year programs, he interviews P&Q staff writer Nathan Allen, who recently reported our story on the best one-year MBA options (see The Best One-Year MBA Programs At U.S. Schools). He discusses his reporting of the story and what he discovered, naming the best schools offering accelerated programs and why they are becoming more popular.

Then, Kevin Marvinac, a Chicago Booth MBA and one of four co-founders of TransparentMBA, steps into our Bay Area studio to talk about the fascinating data the startup — known as the Glassdoor for MBAs — is gathering from current students and recently graduated alumni (see MBA Envy? Not When You Know The Crazy Hours MBAs Work).

Finally, Sandy Kreisberg, founder of HBSGuru.com, dials in from Cambridge, Mass., to bring his highly popular handicapping series to audio. He assesses the odds of a white male who graduated from a top-three accounting program with a 3.9 grade-point average and has a 710 GMAT. The candidate has racked up three years of experience performing economic analysis for damage calculations, having been promoted after one year. He expects to apply to Dartmouth Tuck, Northwestern Kellogg, Duke Fuqua, and UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.
