Boston University Launches Second-Tier Priced Online MBA

Boston University is launching a second-tier priced online MBA.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, while many institutions make no pricing, or respective quality, distinctions between their online and on-campus degree programs, Boston University is promoting a purposely different online MBA.

Specifically designed for the part-time student, this online degree offered in conjunction with edX, offers a different curriculum and less specialization, and comes in at a $24,000 price tag as opposed to more than $56,000 for the full-time on-campus version.

The takeaway? With so many institutions working to make their online offering as close as possible to the quality and experience of their on-campus version, this marks a decidedly different approach – an admission of and promotion of something entirely different. We’ll all be looking to see how it works.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
