It turns out the rules for M.B.A.’s depend on whether individuals can prove that they were already established in a certain trade or business before going to get an M.B.A. and that the degree will help them maintain or improve their skills in that specific trade or business.
If they can demonstrate both, they can deduct whatever tuition costs their employer didn’t reimburse or offer to reimburse. And if they can’t — say they are switching careers or didn’t have qualifying work experience before heading to school — they can’t.

The goal should be shared governance, he said, with faculty, students and staff working together. "You need to understand what this new generation wants," he said. And it's not "a faculty member with white hair and a tie standing at a blackboard trying to write a formula."At NC State, we certainly take student feedback from focus groups, teaching evaluations and the annual student survey very seriously. But I do not expect to add any students to voting slots on the curriculum committee any time soon.
