Don’t Pay For Your MBA
Connie‘s Motivational quote is by ~ Theodore Roosevelt
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
This quote will make more sense as we discuss today’s topic… Don’t Pay For Your MBA – The Faster, Cheaper, Better Way to Get the Business Education You Need.
The costs for college education and graduate school have become so expensive that kids are coming out of school will mortgage payments. You probably know a few of these broke kids.
The benefit of college & grad school is that they or their parents have invested in their future…right? If that’s true then why is having a college degree not a guarantee for landing a job that allows you to earn enough to pay off the college debt? Where did we go wrong?
Here’s a fun facts: In 1908 the Master of Business Administration graduate degree program was established at Harvard College to prepare students for management and leadership positions. MBA’s are still popular, yet times have changed. These credentials no longer offer a guarantee for employment let alone a six-figure salary to off set the high costs. So what’s the alternative?
Today your host, Connie Whitman, speaks with Laurie Pickard. We are going to discuss her new book, “Don’t pay for Your MBA – The Faster, Better Way to Get the Business Education You Need.” In her book she shows how to create customized business curriculum to rival an Ivy League MBA by taking advantage of online courses offered by professors at the world’s best business schools.
LAURIE founded the No-Pay MBA, which has been featured in Fortune, Entrepreneur, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Business, and CNN Money. In addition to advising self-directed learners worldwide, she leveraged her self-made MBA into a successful career as a business and entrepreneurship development consultant, most recently as a private-sector development adviser for the U.S. Agency for International Development in Rwanda. She is currently based in Washington, D.C.
