Pardon My Ignorance…..The Costs of Education, part 4

While doing a little research for the previous posts in this category, I came across this really interesting thing that has me completely baffled.

At almost every school, when I looked for information about tuition and fees, there was always a note that the tuition and fees were different if the student was majoring in Business.


It’s not like there are any special things involved with being a business major. No special equipment. No special classes.

So why are Business majors paying more in tuition and fees than English or History majors?

Pardon my ignorance, but this seems very odd.

More later.

One thought on “Pardon My Ignorance…..The Costs of Education, part 4

  1. Until very recently, practically all MBA grads got great jobs right out of school. At my school, the average starting salary for MBA graduates (first year out of school) was more than $100,000. So they can generally afford to pay more. Also, most of them have already been out in the business world earning pretty good livings before they return for their MBA. In addition, most business school faculty earn higher salaries than their counterparts in other professional schools, so the cost of educating business students is somewhat higher.
