It'll be as long as you make it with the transition settings. Go to Slide Sorter view, if you've already got transition settings on it, then you'll see the time for each slide in slide sorter view.

If you're not setting it to automatically go from slide to slide (and you're using mouse-clicks to move to each slide), then you'll need to rehearse timing so it fits into your budgeted time frame.
