Arizona State - Carey full time MBA is free :)


George Pat...
This is not new, so apologies if it was discussed before, but it is most definitely worth reminding :) Arizona State - Carey offers full scholarships to everyone admitted for full time MBA

As seen on:
https://wpcarey.asu.edu/mba-programs/full-time/scholarships

"all accepted Full-time MBA students will receive a full scholarship covering the total tuition cost of the program — regardless of your ability to pay"

This is a great program ranked No 51 by the FT

Edit: This post is from 2018. This information is no longer on the website, so students must pay for their degree, like everywhere else.

Yes, they started this program a few years ago. Warrington is also doing the same thing this year:

ASU's incoming classes are starting to get a lot stronger, and the program is a lot more selective now. The average GMAT for the most recent class is over 680, and average GPA is over 3.5. A lot of interested people are applying for the 'free MBA' but most of them will be rejected. I think the section rate for this most recent class was 14%.

True it gave opportunity to many people so they got many (1159) applications for 2016. And the acceptance rate was at 14%
But the applications drop on 2017 to 634 applications. That gave them 24% acceptance rate, it is very reasonable so the chances for people to join are good
I think this most likely happened because people with so high gmat and gpa would choose some higher school, provided they can afford it.

Does anybody know if this is still in effect? I checked out the page and they suggest they give generous scholarship support but nothing about the degree being 'free.' Am I missing something or did I miss the opportunity?

Indeed, the degree was never free. All the admitted students were given scholarships.

It seems this is no longer the case, so you missed the opportunity.

It used to be "all accepted Full-time MBA students will receive a full scholarship covering the total tuition cost of the program — regardless of your ability to pay" as seen on the 1st post here.

I edited the 1st post to avoid future confusion.

It is still true for university of florida though.

The Warrington program, if it's still completely subsidized through scholarships, would be a great alternative.

"The UF MBA full-time program is offering 100% tuition scholarships for students admitted during the 2018-19 year."

Doesn't say anything about 2019 or 2020.
