    Six-Figure EdD

    Nope. Not your salary, your tuition cost.

    USC 's hybrid "Global Executive EdD " is $135,800.

    University of Pennsylvania (usually ranked in the top ten for schools of education ) has an "Executive EdD " that costs about that much and that one can complete it in two years with monthly visits to Philly.

    For $135,000 you could get a Global Executive MBA from Duke.

    This might be something you'd consider if someone else was paying the bill but otherwise I can't see how it would be worth that much for an EdD .

    If your eyes are popping out, you guys aren't watching tuition across the entire board.

    AVERAGE PUBLIC 4-year university in the United States is with dorm is over 35 grand per year. Times have changed. https://trends.collegeboard.org/coll...sector-2016-17

    Not to add insult to injury, but 6 years is the new average to complete a bachelor's degree - hasn't been 4 in a long time. https://nces.ed.gov/fastfacts/display.asp?id=569

    6 years @ 35 grand is over 200k to complete a public bachelor's degree earned traditionally.

    You might be right about that. I pay no attention to most schools, just the DL schools and really just the cheaper DL ones. I know that the percentage of people graduating in 4 years has gone down. I think the average cost per year stat might be misleading though. It might be the average (averaging all the schools) but that's not necessarily what most people pay as the majority of people may well be attending the cheaper schools. I'm just sayin'

    USC is certainly a top brand-name, but that's absurd IMO.

    I think Northeastern University 's Ed.D fits the bill. USC and Johns Hopkins University (JHU)'s Ed.D do not have a return on investment.

    There are certainly plenty of DL Ed.D. programs at respectable schools that will not break the bank to that level.

    Reviewing the "student profiles" section of the program page, I find it hard to believe that many, if any, are paying the full sticker price. This looks to be a SHARP group, many of whom probably received full rides to previous graduate programs. I can't imagine that after having Ivy League and comparable educations covered in the past that they would be willing to drop $135k (even if MOST meals during face-to-face session are free!) for a doctorate (for some, a second doctorate, at that).

    Thank you for noticing. I received an email notification that someone had sent me a personal message through Degreeinfo and when I went in to answer, I realize that it HAD been quite a while. With a job promotion, a daughter's wedding and a lot of extracurricular professional association and accreditation activities, publications and presentations, I fell out of the habit of checking Degreeinfo to see if there was any damage that I could do.

    If it could open doors to an administrative position at a university or large high school, say something pulling down six figures, that might be a good ROI. But a bit risky.
