US MBA tuition plateau


mba hipste...

I just saw an article that said that Harvard and Booth have not increased their MBA tuition for this year.

I wonder if due to the drop in enrollment in US MBA programs we're finally hitting some kind of tuition plateau.

Tuition for the Booth MBA has risen from $56k per year in 2012:

... to $72k today.

that's almost 30%.

It tricky. The value of a top MBA is much, much, higher than the tution. At most US schools, the cost of the MBA is similar to the cost of other degrees at the same college. So, the fees are linked to the value of all degrees and are limited by both affordability and the growing debate over domestic student debt. The falling supply of employable applicants for full time MBAs can't really be effected by fees, since immigration laws and work permit controls nudge international applicants towards STEM degrees, with similar annual tution, and other countries.
