Don't Pay for Your MBA: The Faster, Cheaper, Better Way to Get the Business Education You Need
<Don't Pay for Your MBA: The Faster, Cheaper, Better Way to Get the Business Education You Need>—— Laurie Pickard
Who needs a mountain of debt?
Each year, the nation’s top business schools are flooded with applications from people eager to pursue their MBA dreams. But those aspirations come at a steep price. According to U.S. News and World Report, the average debt load for graduates of NYU’s Stern School of Business, MIT’s Sloan School of Management, and other top business schools exceeds $100,000.
Like most, author Laurie Pickard couldn’t shoulder that. But she faced a dilemma: despite two degrees and a Peace Corps stint, she needed a business education to land her dream job in international development. She decided to take her education into her own hands, and found that some of those same prestigious business schools offer MOOCs (massive online open courses) for low or even no cost. By picking the right classes from the best schools, she gained the skills — without all the debt.
In Don’t Pay for Your MBA, Pickard shows self-starters, career changers, and budding entrepreneurs how to navigate the expanding universe of online education. Building on her popular No-Pay MBA blog, Pickard reveals how to:
Define your goals and tailor a curriculum that works for you ● Master the language of business ● Build a strong network ● Choose a concentration and deepen your expertise ● Showcase your nontraditional education in a way that attracts offers
Self-directed learning fills gaps in your training, positions you for promotions, and opens up new opportunities. Why pay exorbitant tuition when you can MOOC your way to success?

Man, I love this book. It really helped me target what I want to do and make some decisions!
The author gives a good background, motivation, and path and shares good stories of other successful candidates. I contacted author myself and got immediate response. I will want to reread the book after I finish my MOOC MBA.
Embarked on my own nopaymba!
Inspiring and very pragmatic!
Taking “financial accounting “ and “a whole MBA in 1 course” as suggested by the book, right now.
Enjoying so far!
Love this book
I purchased this book just out of curiosity and I wasn’t expecting anything special. But the book turned out to be very informative with detailed explanation. Overall, this can be very useful for someone who loves learning and wants to try to tailor his/her own education program.
When some of the most prestigious business schools in the world began providing free versions of their courses online, Laurie Pickard saw an opportunity to get the business education she had long desired, at a fraction of the typical MBA price tag. The blog site she launched to document her journey, NoPayMBA.com, quickly became an international phenomenon. and has been featured in Fortune, Entrepreneur, The Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, Financial Times, and Bloomberg Business. From these beginnings, Laurie has grown into the role of MBA adviser to independent students from around the globe.
