Why are Wharton and Columbia (~54000) more expensive than HBS (\$48600)?

You have to take into consideration of the living expenses as well (that's the first thing that came to mind). However, as I'm typing this, I kind of realize that what I just typed is probably wrong.

Yup, because this is the amount for tuition only. Then again, HBS has a mandatory 4800 fee for books, cases etc. Columbia and Wharton have books and supplies fees but only about 2000- 3000. Still that doesnt make up the difference.

While I imagine there are many explanations, the simple one is: HBS does not rely on its tuition as much as almost any other school. They have an incredibly profitable publishing company... and, from what I've heard, a rather successful alumni that is known for giving back to the school : ) (Not that the other top schools don't have that alumni, as well).

From what I have read, HBS' tuition does not cover the costs it incurs to have you as a student.
