Here is an article from The Economist that is making the rounds. Rapidly rising tuition fees seem to have little impact on MBA applications.
"A school’s position in The Economist or the Financial Times ranking,
however, has little impact on applications. Indeed, where an effect can
be seen, it seems that rising in the rankings leads to fewer
applicants. The researchers suspect that this may be because weaker
students are put off from speculative applications. Another thing that apparently has no effect on applications is whether the school is accredited."
In the US, MBA degrees have grown faster than the population.Between 1971 and 2008, the number of new MBAs increased by a whopping 487.5% while the US population increased by 46.6%.
Can the trend continue?
