What people are talking about 7/31

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

We knew that MBA programs don’t come cheap, but six figures? According to Poets and Quants, Duke University’s Global Executive MBA program is the seventh most expensive in the world at $166,000 for 15 months. Not to mention an additional $2,000 charge per elective. UNC’s Global One EMBA comes in at No. 34 with a $105,520 expense. And No. 1? The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business at a whopping $181,500. And it doesn’t matter if you enroll in the home or satellite campus. Is it worth it?

Where is Pharrell Williams? Raleigh-Durham is ranked No. 4 on a list of the happiest cities in the U.S. with a population of over 1 million. Are you happy?

What scandal? The academic scandal hovering over UNC-Chapel Hill hasn’t kept away donors. The university netted almost $300 million for fiscal year 2014, its second-best year ever, and a 9 percent increase from a year ago.

Close the gap. It’s pretty well known that American women who work full time are paid 77 cents for every dollar paid to a male counterpart. But black women fare even worse at 64 cents for every dollar paid to white men. That means black women have to work nearly 19 months to make as much as white men in the previous year alone, according to the National Women’s Law Center. And it crosses all occupations from doctors to customer reps to personal care aides. For shame!
