B-Schooled Podcast Episode #102: Financing Your MBA


After you’re accepted into an MBA program, you’re bound to feel like you’re walking on air for days or weeks after receiving the happy news. And you absolutely should celebrate this huge accomplishment after all the time and energy you poured into your materials. But then at some point, you need to figure out exactly how you’re going to pay for those two phenomenal years!

This episode focuses on the three mains ways you could finance your MBA: with your own money, free money, or loaned money (or a combination of those methods). We talk about why the FAFSA is so important, how graduate-school financing is very different from undergrad financing, and important factors you should consider when taking on federal or private loans.

We think investing in yourself by earning an MBA is worth it, but it’s critical to go into the process with your eyes wide open.
