It does not have the same training effect exactly. However, if you don't have time, you don't have time, and getting a run in within two runs still has greater training benefit then just not doing it. If it's not a habit, just do the best you can! Remember a single run will never make or break your training. It's all about consistency.

Are you following a training plan for a half-marathon or similar? If yes, then yeah, the point is to run all of it at one time because the point of the training plan is to help you build endurance to run a 10k/half/full/other distance. If you're not training for something specific, it doesn't matter but you still won't be working towards building up your endurance.
