Loan terms available through the US Federal Student Loan program are becoming less attractive, and origination fees for both Stafford and Federal Plus loans are on the rise.  BusinessWeek writer Alison Damast writes:

“Incoming first-year MBA students and second-year MBA students typically spend July trying to finalize how they’ll be paying for school in the fall. This summer they’ll be in for a rude shock as they calculate how the recent raft of changes to the federal loan programs will affect their student loan payments…”

Recently during a market development trip to Ukraine, we met with several high potential candidates to discuss their profiles, motivations in choosing IE Business School and how they planned to fund their studies.  We met with 17 candidates in total, and most of the candidates we met with were very well prepared, and had a very clear financial plan in place.

As part of our activities in Ukraine we worked with MBA Strategy, a local firm that focuses on helping top candidates join elite international schools, to interact with top candidates in Kiev.  We also recorded an interview with them, and it’s now available on YouTube.  To see the video, click here.

As part of a recent IE trip to the UK, the Director of Financial Aid for IE met with BusinessBecause reporter Kate Jillings (see profile here) to talk about the investment that an MBA from an elite school is, and how to go about financing it.

“In the third in our series of ‘Meet the Team’ we go behind-the-scenes with an experienced Financial Aid director to understand what role funding plays in the MBA admissions process. An MBA from a top school, says Joel, is in some ways like a “luxury product experience” and it’s definitely a long-term investment in the future – but what assistance does IE Business School provide to help finance this investment?…”

In a recent interview with First Financial Daily, both Julian Trigo – Director of Admissions at IE Business School, and Joël McConnell – Director of Financial Aid at IE, talked about evolving patterns in applicaitons for MBA programs offered by top European business schools.  In the article the effect of the financial situation in Europe on MBA applications is discussed, and the new realities applicants are facing, with regards to program funding, are also discussed.

“己身处的国家正值危机,这多少让人感到沮丧,更何况当这危机真实地影响到自己的生活,负面的情绪恐怕更为强烈。

Antonio的体会正是如此。已晋升中层管理人员的他为欧洲当地颇为著名的大型企业工作,为了以后的晋升作准备,Antonio计划申请欧洲的顶尖商学院进修MBA课程。“公司能提供助学经济补贴,不必担心高昂的学费。”Antonio原本认为这是个很好的机会。

然而变化也来得很快。先是自己的妻子失业,然后Antonio又收到公司的通知:公司取消了员工的助学经济补助。Antonio的财务状况一下子变得紧张,既要维系整个家庭的开销,又要承担高昂的学费,Antonio犹豫之后决定放弃申请MBA。….”

Chinese women are now leading the way, with regards to completing their master studies outside China, at the world’s top institutions (see the recent BusinessWeek article on the subject here) and many of these top candidates need financial assistance to access top master degree programs.  While IE has been active in China for many years, and we also have a representative office in Shanghai (contact: china @ ie.edu), we are actively supporting top candidates via Financial Aid as well.

To learn more about the awards, see here.  Keep in mind that to apply for these awards you must have previously been admitted to a qualifying master program.
