Quick Hit: Study Abroad Inquiry

The NYTimes reports today that the latest story on study abroad programs is going to be the new focus on cash incentives to universities by loan companies. They're already looking into a number of programs that offered perks in exchange for promotion of their study abroad programs. The problems with these incentives is that students weren't getting accurate information on study abroad. There could have been great programs where students could have learned a lot, but because these profit-seeking institutions were dominating the game, these students' educations suffered. Hopefully the attorney general will learn information to stop such a system where students pay the price.

I came across a website which has a lot of information for anyone who is planning to study abroad. It includes information on courses and universities from US, UK and Australia and other countries as well. Especially for an MBA, take a look here!
