Choosing a university, whether you decide to take regular classes, or alternate online delivery, can be a daunting task. You can probably rattle off a list of names of some of the most prestigious and respected universities around, but can you afford it? There's no question that a PhD in business management is going to cost - a lot.
In fact, the average tuition costs for a first year student is somewhere in the $40,000 to $60,000 range, not necessarily including living expenses (assuming you have to relocate). However, when choosing an appropriate post-secondary institution, the last thing you want to do is opt for the cheapest offer. Sometimes a lower costing product is just as good as a higher priced one. Not so when it comes to an education.
Research the institution's track record of retaining and graduating highly qualified professionals. The U.S. Department of Education website is one excellent resource for discovering universities that fit within your budget and academic expectations. Before you know it, you'll be well on your way to a PhD in Business Management.
