The average annual cost of attending one of the Top 25 Business Schools in 2017 is $55,593.
Compare that with the cost of attending courses that are comparable to (and sometimes even the same as) those provided by many of those institutions online? $837. That’s 1.5% of the cost of attending business school onsite at some some of the world’s most prestigious institutions.
Too good to be true? In an education economy where public and private universities are working to bridge gaps in accessibility and help create opportunity for learners who don’t have the luxury of attending their schools, these courses are offered as potential goldmines of fast information tailor-made for practical application. In other words, they are the perfect resource for new skill seekers who are willing to make short-term investments of time and energy and financial resources, which can lead to jobs and careers in the long-term, especially for those who choose fields that have largely moved online, like marketing.
In this post, we’ve put together two tables for marketers interested in how it’s possible to cobble together a set of skills and bona fides in their field for a fraction of the cost of a comparable education at a top-tier, global university.
