Bargain-basement offers

March 17, 2011

The current debate on variable tuition fees and competition seems to miss the point that there are some areas where price is a relatively trivial element in decision-making.

Likewise, a university whose message is "come to us, we are cheap" will not appeal much to prospective students or employers.
