The Business School Question is brought to you by the team at BusinessBecause.

Hosted by BusinessBecause editor, Marco De Novellis, this is a podcast for anyone considering applying to business school.

Every episode, we interview a leading expert from the business school world and ask them one key admissions question—to help you on your journey to business school.

On the very first episode of The Business School Question, we ask Gareth Howells—executive director of MBA, Master’s in Finance, and early careers programs at London Business School—Is an MBA Worth It?

At LBS, the full-time MBA costs just over $100,000 in tuition alone. At Wharton, two years of MBA study will set you back over $150,000—that’s before living costs, travel, health insurance, bar tabs, and all the rest of it!

We explore whether an MBA really pays off in terms of return on investment, what else an MBA gives you, and when an alternative, more affordable program might be a better option.

For our next episode, look out for announcements on our FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn pages, and on our website.
