Product description

From the Back Cover

While an MBA can accelerate your career, the cost is formidable: for traditional business schools, two years of lost salary and $100,000 in tuition. Few people can shoulder that load. Fortunately, no one needs to anymore--not when schools such as Wharton, MIT, and Stanford offer courses online for 1/100 of the cost. Don't Pay for Your MBA shows you how to get a world-class business education by tapping into these no-cost and low-cost MOOCs, or massive open online courses.

Author Laurie Pickard is a pioneer in online education. Her quest to piece together a business education while working abroad has been featured in national media--and inspired enthusiasm among people seeking MBA-level schooling, but without the six-figure price tag.

In this helpful, insightful guide, Pickard delivers hard-won lessons for successfully navigating the vast array of offerings, selecting the best options, and filling gaps in your nontraditional education. Packed with stories of self-directed learners in every field, the book reveals how to:

Define your goals and chart a career course - Build fluency in the language of business - Develop a core curriculum, with a focus on skills - Choose a concentration and deepen your expertise - Create a strong in-person and online network - Showcase your education to attract job offers - And much more.

An MBA degree is notoriously expensive, with very few free rides. Whether you want to prepare for your next career move or tackle a complete MBA curriculum from scratch, Don't Pay for Your MBA opens up valuable online alternatives--at a fraction of the cost.

Laurie Pickard founded the No-Pay MBA website, which has been featured in Fortune, Entrepreneur, The Wall Street Journal, CNNMoney, Financial Times, and Bloomberg Business. She also works as a business and entrepreneurship development consultant, most recently at the U.S. Agency for International Development in Rwanda.
