Financing Your MBA

Pursuing an MBA is significant financial investment, one of the most important that you'll make, and we, at Emory, are committed to working with you to make your educational goal a financial reality. Most Goizueta Business School Executive MBA students make use of the dedicated staff in the Emory Financial Aid Office to learn how to best set up financing for tuition. Your dedicated financial aid representative will guide you through the process and help you secure the funding that you need. There are also payment options that you may explore through the Admissions Office directors.
