New on BSchools


Recently here at BSchools we pointed out that online MBA programs carry extraordinarily large startup costs, in part because online curricula require sizable investments in production facilities and equipment. These programs also carry high ongoing upgrade costs, especially at highly-ranked business schools that exploit competitive advantages from new technology. However, at one top program, a different and surprising objective behind these investments has also emerged.


Within the past 15 years, new kinds of business plan possibilities have captured the imagination of entrepreneurs. Some of these planning approaches—which embody radical departures from the process of drafting traditional business plans—appear to be gaining momentum.


The surprising study draws two remarkable conclusions. First, it found that managers who earned business degrees at both the master’s and undergraduate levels actually cut their employees' wages over time. Second, the research also found that despite earning substantially greater salaries, business school-trained managers were not more productive than their counterparts who lack such degrees.


Work-from-home (WFH) is so 2020. The latest workplace trend no longer embodies the remote work-from-home model or even the hybrid model where post-Covid employees spend one or two days a week back in their old offices. The cutting-edge trend is actually WFA, which stands for work-from-anywhere.

Popular Types of Online MBA Programs

The range of options provided by flexible MBAs include evening and online courses; alternate admissions deadlines; and the capacity to complete coursework one class at a time instead of having to complete multiple courses simultaneously.

One of the most difficult parts of the MBA application process can be taking standardized tests. Some applicants just do not "test well", or do not have the time to prepare and sit for a GMAT exam. Conveniently, there are several business schools offering GMAT waiver online MBA programs, where the GMAT exam requirement is waived for qualified applicants.

Among aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders, obtaining a master’s of business administration (MBA) is seen as a crucial stepping stone towards a successful career in the business world. Reputable MBA programs provide students with valuable knowledge and hands-on training to help them thrive in the job market upon graduation.

  • How to Become a General Manager (GM) – Steps & Requirements

    The GM of a business department isn’t all that different from the GM of a sports team. This is a role that asks for a competitive spirit, an appetite for risk, and attention to detail.
