Will My Company Pay For My MBA?

Some employers might pay for a team member’s MBA because it is a valuable investment, and as such, often expect a return on their expenditure. They will often require you to stay at the company for a predetermined number of years, which are often laid out in a contractual agreement. This type of MBA assistance is usually offered in the form of reimbursement, and may be contingent upon degree completion or even be grade sensitive.
