The National Law Journal Ends Weekly Tabloid Launches Monthly Glossy

first_img Beth Frerking, editor-in-chief of The National Law Journal, attributed the change to audience reading habits — people just don’t have time for a weekly print offering. “Based on the regular feedback we receive, our subscribers prefer to keep informed of breaking headlines throughout the workday, and often find it easier to read our expert analysis in the evening or over the weekend when they have more time to digest our in-depth content,” Frerking said in the release. ALM is changing up its print offerings with The National Law Journal. The weekly news tabloid, first launched in 1978, will publish as a monthly magazine starting with the April issue. The magazine — with a circulation of around 9,000 — will continue the Journal’s coverage of federal courts and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as court appointments and lawmaking news on the state and federal levels. The cover of The National Law Journal Magazine for its inaugural April 2017 issue. While the new magazine is technically a print launch, in a release today, Richard Caruso, VP and GM of legal media at ALM, called this an expansion of the publisher’s “digital-first strategy.” The reduction in print frequency allows the team at The National Law Journal to focus more on daily digital coverage. ALM owns several other law publications and events, including the daily print newspaper The New York Law Journal, and the monthly magazines Corporate Counsel and LegalTech News.last_img read more

There’s great weather year round, beautiful beaches, and you get to enjoy the laid-back California attitude. But do you get a good return on your investment (ROI) going to school in San Diego?The ROI of your MBA program can be difficult to determine considering the many factors that come into play. Not only do you need to compare the cost of tuition and expected salary upon graduation from each school, but you also have to take into account the cost of living where you go to school and your salary change pre- to post-MBA.In this article, we’re going to take a look at the best San Diego MBA programs to get the highest return on your investment. Fowler College of Business Administration – SDSUMBA students who chose to attend the Fowler College of Business Administration at SDSU can expect affordable tuition and decent job prospects. These MBA graduates have one of the best returns on their investments in San Diego.Over 70 percent of the most recent Fowler MBA class had a job within three months of graduation, and that percentage increased to 82.94 percent at six months post graduation. MBA students who were employed found jobs at GEICO, EY, PepsiCo, HSBC Group, Qualcomm, and more.TuitionTuition at Fowler is very affordable. In fact, full-time Master of Business Administration students who are California residents can expect to pay just $29,938 over the course of their degree—$7,223 a semester. Non-California residents can expect to pay a little more, approximately $47,758 over two years.SalaryThe mean starting salary for MBA graduates at Fowler is $61,467.ROIThe salary-to-debt ratio for Fowler MBA graduates who are residents of California is .487, which means that Fowler MBAs can expect to pay off their debt in just the first year. For non-California residents, the ratio is .777, which is still less than a year to pay off the debt.University of San Diego School of Business AdministrationChoosing to attend the University of San Diego School of Business Administration is a fairly reliable choice for return on investment. 83 percent of MBA graduates can expect to be employed three months post graduation at top companies including Amazon, Deloitte, Intel, Bank of America, eBay, Boston Consulting Group, and 21st Century Fox. But what does it look like when you compare tuition to expected salary?TuitionTuition is a bit pricey compared to the other San Diego business schools. For an MBA student, it costs $1,475 per unit with 56 units required. That equals around $82,600 for tuition over two years. In addition, MBA students can expect $1,153.50 a semester for health insurance coverage with approximately $200 in additional fees. Total, over the two years, MBA students can expect to pay $87,614 for tuition and fees.SalaryUpon graduation, MBA students at USD can expect an average starting salary of $72,363 with a range of $50,000 – $100,000.ROIThe salary-to-debt ratio for a USD MBA graduate is 1.21, indicating that it would take you only 1.2 years to earn back what you paid for the program if every dime of your salary went to paying off your tuition.Rady School of Management – UC San DiegoThe Rady School of Management is one of the more expensive Master of Business Administration programs in San Diego, at the same time it has some of the best job prospects.
