I was reading The Top Part-Time Business Schools article in the Forbes magazines and I was considering the MBA program. The only problem would be that I have to pay everything out of pockets. I thought of the expenses and they’re just too high. The 5 year part-time MBA program in my school of choice, NYU (Stern) is $166,000. That’s a lot of money. I ran some numbers on the Business School Calculator and the payback period comes out fives years and the 5-year MBA gain as a % of expenses. That doesn’t look very appealing at this point.
