Dr. Patrick Raines, dean of Belmont University’s College of Business Administration, discusses why enrollment in MBA programs is down at many schools, in this article in the Oct. 26 Tennessean.

A sluggish hiring environment made some potential students reluctant to leave their jobs, said Pat Raines, dean of Belmont University’s College of Business Administration, which includes the Massey Graduate School of Business.
”On top of everything else, we know the 25- to 34-year-old demographic is declining so there are going to be fewer applicants,” he said, adding that incomes in that age bracket fell by 14% between 2000 and 2002.
