Hi

I know that nowadays its not just the rich people who are taking advantage of international studies. But middle class people are also in the race.
I want to know from the U.S MBA schools' alumni, how they managed their MBA making a combination of university scholarship, outside scholarship, part-time job and loans.
It would be really helpful if someone experienced can guide if it is really possible or not.
You know when we don't have certain specific sources, it is even difficult to convince parents that yes we too can do it .
I need the advice badly.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks

Since your question is specifically for current MBA students I will let them answer, but I just want to point out that part time job is next to impossible considering the hectic scheduled of MBA students. Most of the students typically use a combination of financial aid, scholarships, and personal funds to fund their MBA education. Business schools offer multiple types of scholarship - need based, merit based, etc. - to students. (Check this compilation of scholarships) Also there are few loan providers such as Prodigy Finance that provide education loans without asking for collateral or co-signer.

1. I am an alum from Yale (Indian Visa etc). I used their loan without collateral services. Just by the virtue of being a student, you can avail of the loan. The University is your cosignor, and you don't need a collateral.

2. Much has changed since, and now many MBA programs in the top 30 extend such service to all internationals.
3. Besides, look up organizations like Prodigy, which work on similar concepts.
4. Best however, is to work with an awesome consultant, and hope to get a scholarship. No loans to repay. :-)
