Business Insider has a feature on the business schools that offer the most financial aid. As we mentioned in the April 2 blog, price is just one (albeit important) selection criteria. If the school won't likely help you achieve your post-MBA ambitions, it's not worth attending even at the price of free.

SOM Dean Edward Snyder stated, "The drivers of this [tuition increase] frankly are to stay within our peer set in terms of where our tuition is, and most of our focus is on increased scholarship support for our students."
Quite frankly, the top schools are raising tuition because they can. The ROI is there for their graduates and, to be fair sided, the tuition hike will allow the schools to successfully compete for research, star professors, etc.
