We all know that an MBA is an investment in both time and money, and for this reason those considering a degree are often interested in financial aid opportunities.  Valentín Cortes, IE’s Director of Financial Aid, was in Johannesburg, South Africa talking about this very thing; he doled out some valuable tips for people who attended the recent IE Business School event at the Michelangelo Hotel Sandton.

For example, Cortes explained that many MBA candidates head straight to the Financial Aid office when considering business school, but this is a mistake.  Like many things in life, it’s best to do your homework first.  Find out what resources you already have available to you — whether they might be personal savings, family help, or a loan — so that you know exactly what to ask for from a school scholarship.
