Last week in the capital city, there was a briefing session on an American MBA program specially designed for managers and high level executives.
While many other MBA programs can also claim to cater for top executives, this one no doubt is definitely meant for company CEOs and those with equal power and authority.
Because the fees itself is already a cool $1++K. In US Dollars!
And this is not including the cost of traveling to various campuses around the world every few months which the stunned-to-silence-audience was told can work up to B$100K per year.
On top of that, you’d need to take one week leave to attend a study session every 5 weeks.
From the brochures, this program is definitely great and hugely beneficial. But it is by far the most expensive MBA programs that I have come across.
Even if you can afford the monetary side, I cannot imagine your boss will be too thrilled to have you take study leave for around 3 months in a year. Unless of course, you ARE the boss.
But those who have the time but not the money, you can perhaps try to look for student loans.
This particular loan provider seemed to offer really good service such as student loan consolidation where students can combine their study loans and pay lower interest rates. However, I am not sure if their private student loans service covers non-American students or most importantly, this kind of amount.
Anyway this particular MBA program did sounded like a wonderful program to join but unfortunately, the cost is simply too high.
