Many companies in corporate America are not as financially supportive of employees who wish to pursue an Executive MBA program as they once were in the past. The reason? Lack of Return on Investment (ROI) to the employer. While many students choose to pursue an Executive MBA program for professional development and advancement, many are paying the bulk of their tuition themselves, carrying the burden of tuition costs ranging from $50,000 to $130,000. In addition, there is a misconception that all Executive MBA students receive significant employer tuition sponsorship or reimbursement.
