Rising Cost of Higher Education

March 22, 2013
, , , ,

I received this infographic in my email, and the numbers and trends it clearly outlined made me think -

Is the increasing cost of higher education and degrees really worth it?


When B-school feeds are of the order of 15-20 Lakh INR, the certifications such as CFA® and FRM suddenly come forth as far better viable options which students can seriously start considering as a cost effective alternative to MBA.

We had earlier discussed the CFA® v/s MBA dilemma, but this new source of data brings us to consider that perhaps an MBA may not be giving the commensurate returns that students often expect it provide.

What are your thoughts on this?
