The College of Business at Tech is planning to begin an online MBA program. The initial startup cost for computing equipment, facilities, course development, and staff recruitment and development is $350,000. The college plans to charge tuition of $18,000 per student per year.
However, the university administration will charge the college $12,000 per student for the first 100 students enrolled each year for administrative costs and its share of the tuition payments.
a. How many students does the college need to enroll in the first year to break even?
b. If the college can enroll 75 students the first year, how much profit will it make?
c. The college believes it can increase tuition to $24,000, but doing so would reduce enrollment to 35. Should the college consider doing this?
