Ways to finance MBA studies

Each funding option has its bright sides and drawbacks. Personal funding may be at your disposal, but how wise is it to invest all of it in your MBA? Employer sponsorship is a valuable support and a very tempting option, but it entails binding terms. However, these terms may have positive consequences for you, rather than just limitations. Scholarships and grants are free, but their availability is always limited and access to them is highly competitive. Work-study options such as assistantships are perfect for any business minded student, but one has to meet the eligibility requirements. MBA student loans are readily available, but at what cost?
