MBA cost dependence on electives

Post Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:35 am
Hi,

I am not aware if all programs worldwide have a fixed MBA cost or variable cost structure. What I want to understand is that is it possible to reduce the program cost by taking less number of electives? If yes, then which US programs offer this flexibility?

Thanks

You typically won't be able to pay less by taking fewer electives. MBA programs, just like undergraduate programs have a minimum number of credits required to graduate. So regardless you'll have to pay for those courses. However, it is typically a flat rate that covers all of those credits. Business school is expensive, but will be worth it.

I think it's not applicable in real.

As far as my information goes, the fees are different for different schools.

There are a fixed number of electives you need to go for. So cost saving in that regard is not possible.
