The return on your investment Going back to school to pursue your MBA is a big decision for many reasons. A major consideration is the out-of-pocket and opportunity costs involved. It’s important to give careful weight to return on your investment.

The Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is routinely recognized as one of those “top” MBA programs. Yet, the approach to tuition taken by our public, land-grant institution consistently places us at the top of many “best-buy” lists, including those in The Princeton Review, Barron’s Best Buys in College Education, and the Fiske Guide to Colleges. Wisconsin MBA tuition rates the 3rd lowest in the recent U.S news publication when compared to the top 50 MBA programs. As a result, the average Wisconsin MBA graduate breaks even on his or her MBA investment in 2 years. And there’s more good news when it comes to earning your Wisconsin MBA. Neither of these rankings takes into account the fact that more than 75% of Wisconsin MBA students receive meritbased aid each year. The average merit-based aid package at Wisconsin consists of a project assistantship, which provides free tuition, health insurance for the student and any dependents, and a stipend of approximately $9,400 each year in exchange for working 13 hours each week within an MBA department. A top-quality MBA program, tuition that doesn’t break the bank, and an opportunity for substantial financial aid. The Wisconsin MBA offers them all.

A recent article in BusinessWeek looked at top MBA programs across the country and found most charge “upwards of $80,000 for tuition alone. Add two years of forgone salary and the total costs can be well north of $300,000.”
