ezra

Saw an article today about MBA programs in the US that lead to the most student debt. Here's the run-down, with approximate debt per student:

NYU Stern - $105k
Virginia Darden - $105k
Duke Fuqua - $102k
MIT Sloan - $100k
Michigan Ross - $96k
Cornell Johnson - $96k
Yale - $95k
Dartmouth Tuck - $95k
Kellogg - $89k
Thunderbird - $88k

It all seems like a lot until you realize that many MBAs from these program make over $100k per year plus a potential signing bonus - so they can expect to pay off most of that debt within a year or two.

Ezra, normally you ll pay 30-40% of your income in taxes, plus living costs (3-4000$ per month are enough in city like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco?), then you need a car and you also have to pay your 100.000$ loan interests (6-9% on the loan).

For context, I recently read that the average loan debt for INSEAD MBAs is around 70,000 USD.

And at IESE it's about 52,000 USD.
