A national survey investigated full-time graduate management students' indebtedness and sources of financing, comparing less competitive/more competitive schools, racial/ethnic groups, and genders. Results indicate that among students who rely on loans to finance graduate education, those who borrow the most can expect to owe $47,000 by graduation. Debt burden falls most on students at highly competitive schools. (MSE)
