If you’ve been accepted to an MBA program, congratulations! If you’ve been accepted to an MBA program *and* have received merit aid from the school, even better!

This episode of B-Schooled covers:

  • How accepted MBA candidates should go about asking for an increase in merit aid, whether they were offered anything initially or not;
  • The 4 positions a candidate might be negotiating from and tactics associated with each; and
  • Detailed advice for approaching such an ask over the phone vs. email.
