What’s the sticker price of an MBA? Even for candidates who know their next step is business school, the financial commitment is significant. For candidates who are still deciding, calculating the variables — tuition, time, meeting responsibilities to family, work and community — can be overwhelming. Both types of achievers may be surprised at how affordable a Rice MBA really is.
