If you're going to go to NYC for a master's degree in business AND you intend to stay there, your best options are NYU and Columbia. Both are highly ranked and will probably land you the better jobs. However, they are not cheap and are not easy to get admitted to. I think NYU will run you around $90k for an MBA and Columbia might be over $100k. There are other schools outside of NYC you can look at that are well ranked and a bit more affordable. Indiana University is ranked in the top 20 and I believe their program is around $60k. There are a few others in the top 20 in that range. Good luck.

Look into CUNY Baruch College. A masters at a CUNY school will cost less than $15k.*

What are your career goals? If you think you can get a cheap degree and land a banking job in Manhattan with a mid-six-figure bonus, you don't know how the city works.

If you want value for money you should get your degree in Europe from a reputable school. The higher ranked the better. Some place like the European School of Economics doesn't count. Universities get much more state funding in Europe than they in the US. Also, for highly compensated professions like law and business, tuition at US states schools is often similar to private schools. The states don't subsidized those degrees as much because they know graduates will earn a lot money and can afford to pay back the loans (in theory, anyway).

By the way, I have a friend who is getting his undergraduate in economics at Columbia. We were discussing graduate schools for economics and he said that the good schools often don't take grad students who have a bachelor's degree in economics. They're not considered smart enough. Nowadays economics grad students frequently have an undergrad degree in math or physics, not economics.

Wow that's cheap. You sure that's not the tuition for a year? $30k seems a lot more in line with what I've seen price wise for MBAs from non-ranked schools.

Yeah well, welcome to America.

When it comes to graduate degrees like JD's or MBA's, you want to go to the absolute best school you can get into, because reputation and name brand really does make a difference at that level in terms of future salary, getting the job, or even just getting callbacks when you start pounding the pavement after graduation. Silly, because the quality of education may not (probably doesn't in most cases) justify the price delta between a state school and a top tier, but that's the way of it none the less.
