MBA programs boost fall classes, as more people take break to retool
Here's today's story on what's happening with area MBA programs.
And here's some scoop on the University of Texas at Dallas' MBA program, which we missed: Lisa Shatz, director of the full-time MBA program, says enrollment is up 25 percent for the fall class, and applications were up more than 50 percent.
Beyond the broader factors (economy) driving graduate enrollments up, Shatz attributes UT-Dallas' increase in applications to the School of Management's No. 49 ranking behind No. 47 SMU in the U.S. News & World Report best business schools ratings, and the school's total program cost of less than $25,000.
