An MBA is an increasingly expensive degree, especially when you add living expenses and for international students, often higher programme fees. How can an MBA be made accessible to a wider range of potential students with a more diverse set of post graduation plans?
There are a growing number of platforms online that facilitate peer-to-peer lending – usually one individual lending another individual money, often to start or expand a business idea. Students enrolled in the Future MBA could have the possibility of having their programme fees partially or completely funded through small loans provided by alumni or family and friends. A similar platform could also allow alumni and businesses to provide micro scholarships to students with backgrounds or goals they want to support.
