Sobre o livro
Who needs a mountain of debt?
Each year, the nations top business schools are flooded with applications from people eager to pursue their MBA dreams. But those aspirations come at a steep price. According toU.S. News and World Report, the average debt load for graduates of NYUs Stern School of Business, MITs Sloan School of Management, and other top business schools exceeds $100,000.
Like most, author Laurie Pickard couldnt shoulder that. But she faced a dilemma: despite two degrees and a Peace Corps stint, she needed a business education to land her dream job in international development. She decided to take her education into her own hands, and found that some of those same prestigious business schools offer MOOCs (massive online open courses) forlow or evenno cost. By picking the right classes from the best schools, she gained the skills — without all the debt.
InDont Pay for Your MBA, Pickard shows self-starters, career changers, and budding entrepreneurs how to navigate the expanding universe of online education. Building on her popularNo-Pay MBA blog, Pickard reveals how to:

- Showcase your nontraditional education in a way that attracts offers
Self-directed learning fills gaps in your training, positions you for promotions, and opens up new opportunities. Why pay exorbitant tuition when you can MOOC your way to success?
