LOL. As someone from third world where local currency is enormously devalued with respect to US$, I wonder why would anyone do this?

If you think that's bad look up Executive MBA programs. Corporations basically give a university a nearly six figure donation for their top executives to get a tax-free tuition benefit for a rubber-stamped MBA largely indistinguishable from a real MBA.

I know the above probably sounds like sour grapes, I don't have an MBA or any graduate degree, I just think the whole Exec. MBA thing is a total scam against the companies paying for them and a huge cash cow for universities.

Exec MBAs are not for top execs. "exec" is just the marketing tag. It's exactly the same as exec Masters that GATech and UW do to extract tuition reimbursement funds from big companies like Microsoft

These prices seem mostly targeted employers who offer tuition reimbursement.
