Saw several articles covering for-profit colleges such as University of Phoenix, DeVry, and how enrollment numbers are severely down.

They cite several factors including the lack of ROI - I wonder if that is going to impact MBA programs since they are pretty much an ROI driven decision....

I think it will impact some MBA programs. But i tend to belive that the higher the ranking the lower the impact will be.
Thanks for sharing news.
