MBA News: Alarming News for Entering Class?

This morning, the Financial Times reported on an alarming situation (“Credit Crunch Takes Toll on Students”) on MBA campuses, where the credit crunch is resulting in fewer lending options and higher lending costs for students – international students in particular. The FT reported that international students can expect to pay 7% on their loans, compared with Americans who typical pay 4.5%. In the report, Rose Martinelli, Associate Dean for Student Recruitment and Admissions at Chicago was quick to illustrate that even though Chicago lost its major lending partner recently, she expects no students to drop out of the program for financial reasons. Further, she noted that student salaries, which are on average more than $100,000, make up for the increased cost.
