Staying local is the general trend for budget-conscious MBA students, and there’s a good reason for this. According to the stats over at U.S. News, out-of-state students could pay close to $60,000 a year.
Here are a few highlights from the research:
• Michigan Ross charged the out-of-state students $59,778 in tuition fees (about $5,000 more than in-state fees), the highest of any of the 50 public business schools associated with the study.
• Out-of-state MBA students who attended Maryland Smith racked up a $49,413 tuition bill. This school is new to the pricey policy shift in public education.
• California hosts several institutions that have made the list for traveling students’ swollen tuition fees, including UC business schools like Haas, Rady, Davis, UCLA Anderson, and Riverside-Anderson.
The question remains: Will students continue to consider the trek to out-of-state business school worth their while.
