We all know how expensive pursuing MBA can be. Most programs would cost you anywhere from 50-80k a year including living expenses. Then, factor in the opportunity cost of leaving your work for two years, and MBA sure as hell is an expensive credential to pursue.
So, what is the lowest ranked-MBA program that you would consider attending, after factoring in ROI, opportunity cost, and risk/ reward potential?
For me - I wouldn't attend an MBA ranked below U Texas/ UNC range. Getting I-banking or top consulting out of UNC/ U Texas MBA can still be tough, but at least I will get to watch sick sports and have an awesome social life at these schools, which make these two MBA programs worth it to attend in my book.
