The thought of forgoing your salary for two years and shelling out large amounts of money for your education (again) can seem rather daunting. However, you know from your research that the ROI from Fisher's program is strong; the investment you make now will continue to pay you back as you progress throughout your career. On average, it will take you 4.4 years to recoup your investment in the program, according to a recent BusinessWeek ranking. The majority of MBA students fund their education through a combination of personal savings, loans, and scholarships. Scholarships at Fisher are awarded based on academic merit - all admitted students are automatically evaluated for any available merit-based aid. Even with some merit-based aid, many students are unable to fund their education without the support of loans.
