Assignment

Return on Investment – Education Funding

Develop a three- to four-page analysis (excluding the title and reference pages) on the projected return on investment for your college education and projected future employment. This analysis will consist of two parts:

Part 1: Explain how you made the decision to pursue an education in Business or Finance. Include a summary of expenses related to that decision, such as: cost of tuition, cost of books, the interest you may pay on any loans, and any other associated expenses.

Part 2: Conduct research on your desired occupation and identify how much compensation (return) you expect to earn. How long will it take to pay back the return on this investment? Be sure to consider the trade-off between the cost of education and the expected return on investment.

The research paper should be comprehensive and include specific examples. The paper should be formatted according to APA 6th edition style guidelines and must include at least two scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library or other scholarly sources.
