Want a master’s degree in business but can’t afford the tuition?
Here’s a solution that will help five current or prospective graduate students at the University of Minnesota Duluth. The university’s Labovitz School of Business and Economics has created five positions for graduate research assistants to be filled.
It’s a 40-hour-a-week commitment for students who need financial help to earn a Master of Business Administration degree. The students spend 20 hours a week, earning $17.08 per hour helping faculty with national and international research projects. They spend another 20 hours pursuing their degree. They get 12 credits of free tuition for the academic year and get subsidized university health care.
The effort is meant to offset the cost of tuition that is a barrier for many. Earning the 32 credits needed for an MBA takes three years. Each credit costs $1,077.
