96K is a lot of money for a one year program, even by MIT standard. From 175 to 900 is unheard of.
I contacted the program's director for verification and a few more queries. Will let you all know if they respond.
The tuition is actually only $72,000. And that includes 3 terms, Summer 2010, Fall 2010, and Spring 2011. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Many other MFin programs are two years long, so the tuition seems like less, but you're just spreading it out over two years. MITs program will definitely be more rigorous, as it shoves 2 years worth of material into just 3 terms, but the price tag is actually the same if you keep in mind that at other schools you pay $35,000 tuitions twice. <o:p></o:p>
The rest of the anticipated cost of living at MIT Sloan is very inflated (For example, they allot $5000 for the purchase of a computer).<o:p></o:p>
So while the price may seem a little steep to dish out for just one year, I guess you have to keep in mind that you're actually paying for a 2 year degree, even though you get to be out in 1 year (which sounds like an advantage to me.)<o:p></o:p>
