MBA Mission in Crain’s Business New York… Again.

Jeremy Shinewald was recently quoted in Crain’s Business New York in an article entitled, “As economy sputters, grad schools overflow.” Discussing how the global financial meltdown would impact students’ abilities to finance their own educations, Shinewald stated, “(Some) graduate students finance education via the sale of a house or liquidation of investments…Many people will be reluctant to do so if they are under water. This is going to mean more students will look for loans.” Fortunately, it was also noted in the article that domestic students will not need to worry about securing these loans, as the Stafford Federal Loan Program and the Federal Graduate PLUS Program enable students to borrow up their full tuition. However, international students are facing an uncertain future as Citigroup has cancelled the CitiAssist program, which allowed international students to borrow funds without a domestically based co-signer.  We are expecting announcements from schools in the coming weeks to discuss how they will facilitate lending for international students going forward.
