What do b-school profs and Lady Gaga have in common?

November 3, 2011

Earlier this week we posted about the high – and increasing — cost of college.

As a throwaway point, we mentioned that the annual tuition in Georgetown’s MBA program is about $50,000 … $49,638 to be precise.

That caught some attention, so let’s put the number in perspective.

A Gtown MBA student takes 18 module-courses per year … so. the tuition works out to about $2,750 per module-course.

Each module-course is two classes per week for 7 weeks … so, the tuition works out to about $200 for each of the 14 class sessions.

Let’s put that number in perspective.

According to SeatGeek.com, Lady Gaga ticket prices averaged $182.43 on last year’s Monster Ball Tour … about the same as an MBA class session.

Hmmm.

A couple of hours of Lady Gaga or 75 minutes soaking in some b-school wisdom … bring your wallet and take your pick.

Yipes.

P.S. For the record, I think of that $200 number every time I walk into a classroom. Move over Gaga.
