For those of you considering MBA degrees, you might want to rethink it. A core financial term you should understand is return on investment. For the vast majority of MBA students it just doesn’t compute. Now, the exceptions will attend Harvard or Stanford b-schools, look pretty, already come from money, have family connections, and enjoy the return on their grad school investment. The rest of you normal people won’t.

Most b-schools are great revenue sources for the schools that host them and the student loan corporation, but not so much for the students. Rethink getting an MBA. Rethink college. Decide what you were made to do. I think for many of you it won’t include thousands of dollars in student loans.
