School Is Cool Again
In the recent economic slowdown internet based start-up companies have been among the hardest hit, and the outlook for the near future is not good. This has led an increasing number of dot-commers, who for the last five years have been only too happy to go to work straight out of college, to take the GMAT's and pursue MBA's. Unlike the similar wave of laid-off engineers who went back to business school during the 1991/1992 recession, many of the employees of Internet start-ups---whose compensation was heavy in stock options---will have trouble shouldering the high costs of business school.
