Paying for B-School education: a few findings

Since the height of the Great Recession, fewer prospective students considering MBAs or other graduate management programs have cited reservations about pursuing a graduate business degree.

The Graduate Management Admission Council’s mba.com Prospective Students Survey, which each year surveys more than 12,000 mba.com registrants, finds that the percentage of those saying they don’t have any reservations about pursuing a degree rose from 13% in 2009 to 18% in 2013.

Of those who do, cost and potential debt load remain the top reservations, but the percentage of prospective students concerned about them both declined from 2009 to 2013: cost, from 53% to 48%, and potential debt load, from 51% to 45%.
