Next fall, incoming students at Arizona State University won’t have to pay tuition to get an MBA. Up to 120 business students will get a free ride thanks to a gift from a real estate developer that had been intended to recruit new faculty.

Now the money is being redirected to recruit a more diverse class of MBA students who may have been turned off by the cost of the degree.

Amy Hillman, dean of Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business, speaks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about the program.
