Course Costs.


RMantle
I was curious as to some of the per course cost there are for online MBA programs. The one I am looking at states they are $2,500 per course American. Although as I am Canadian, I get a reduced cost of $1,300 per course. It is hard to know if this is low, high,etc. Of course you cannot evaluate a program merely by cost...but it is just a point of interest?

Thank you

No I don't think that is important. One MBA might have twice as many courses as another, for example by teaching in quarters rather than semesters. What matters is the value of an MBA, and that differs much more than cost. A $15000 MBA that does nothing for your career is less value than a $30000 MBA that boosts your salary or a $100000 MBA that doubles it.

Look at the overall cost of the program rather than the cost-per-course.

In fact, you can even look at ROI for many schools: how much, on average, grads make after the MBA, compare that to your salary, and see what the difference is. Usually for good schools no matter what the cost is, they are worth the investment.
