Have An MBA Student Loan Question? Ask Phil, Our Resident Expert

Phil DeGisi, Chief Marketing Officer at CommonBond

What are the best options out there to finance your MBA? How do you know which loans are right for you? Should you liquidate your savings to pay for your MBA, or should you invest and take out student loans instead? These are just a few of the questions Phil DeGisi will help to answer as Poets&Quant’s new resident expert on MBA student lending – along with any and all other questions on financing your MBA.

And Phil is uniquely qualified for the job. He is currently the Chief Marketing Officer of CommonBond, a tech-enabled student lender that aims to make higher education financing more affordable and transparent.  Not only does Phil run the product, marketing, business development, and creative teams at CommonBond, he graduated from Tuck in 2009 with over $150,000 in student debt – at an 8% interest rate.  He joined CommonBond because he’s experienced the painful process of paying off his high-interest rate student loans – and he’s dedicated to helping students like you have a better experience.  He went on to pay off his student loans in under 6 years – so he can offer expert advice on how you can do the same.

You can take comfort knowing that Phil has walked in your shoes.  Before joining CommonBond, Phil held marketing roles at both startups and larger companies including Quidsi (sold to Amazon), littleBits electronics, and Walmart.com. He’s agreed to serve as a sounding board and source of advice at Poets&Quants for all questions related to financing your MBA – so fire away!
