Trouble in the middle


georgep
Just read an interesting article in the economist.

As per this article, it is safe to do MBA at either "top tier" schools or at the "value tier" (moderate/low fee but accredited) schools. In both cases one could get the benefits in reasonable time period.

I like this cartoon ..

Do you like to share your views?

PS: I have already opted for "value tier" and convinced that the article is very true in the current economic turmoil.

another 10% drop in the exchange and I'll follow you in the "value tier" choice :-)

I think that the lower the return on investments become for those schools in the middle, the more western students are going to go elsewhere for their MBAs. Clearly, a lot of the talk on this board about schools like CEU, Skolkovo, and even schools in Asia like Cheung Kong and CUHK show that western students are becoming increasingly open to schools elsewhere, as long as those schools are accredited and have a decent promise of good jobs afterwards. People are rational beings, and if an investment does not look good, they'll look elsewhere.
