A Tippie MBA pays for itself in just 3.1 years -- the fastest payback any U.S. MBA program can offer, according to Forbes' 2011 rankings. Financial Times also recognized Tippie as #3 Best Value in the U.S. in its latest rankings. Combine this with the fact that more than half of Tippie students receive merit-based financial awards, and a Tippie MBA becomes a smart investment for ROI-savvy MBAs.
How to pay for your degree is a key factor to consider. There are two main sources to finance your MBA: merit-based funding and financial need-based funding. Most Tippie MBAs use a combination of both to finance their degree.
Tippie offers merit-based financial awards to more than half of incoming students every year. Awards are based on the same criteria used for admission: work experience, leadership skills, GMAT/GRE scores, results from the admissions interview, academic ability, and overall fit with the Tippie program.
