As an MBA student fresh out of undergrad, I always felt I lacked guidance when it came to pursuing a graduate degree.

But how exactly do we get to innovation? The answer lies on entrepreneurship.

MBA tuition and graduate school tuition


Graduate school may sound intimidating for certain people. For others it may be another challenge to expand their knowledge. Others, though, may say “graduating from college is intimidating enough, why bother with grad school?” And yet others, the more down to earth, may say “I can’t afford tuition for graduate school.” Now, the latter group makes a strong case. But just like a college degree, a post graduate degree is an investment.

Graduate school is not cheap at all, not to mention if it is an MBA. Check these numbers out:
