Program Costs

You will pursue an MBA once in your life--make sure your choice reflects the return you desire. At Goizueta Business School, our Evening MBA students have discovered the value of an investment that will go with them anywhere in the world.

Typical semester tuition for students starting in Fall 2014 (the Class of 2017) is $9,200 with an estimated total program tuition from start to degree of $73,600. Tuition per semester varies with the number of courses taken. This does not include student fees or the cost of books which may range from $200-400 per semester.

Scholarships

Goizueta's Evening MBA Admissions offers a merit scholarship award based on academic performance, leadership, and overall profile. Each award is $18,000, which equates to approximately one quarter of total program tuition. All applicants to the Evening MBA program will be considered for scholarship during the admission review process, and awards may be offered to up to 20% of the incoming class. Scholarship awards are communicated with the admission decision. No additional application materials are required, though applying by Round 4 is recommended for first consideration.

Aid & Payment Options

Approximately 40% of Evening MBA students take advantage of the variety of loans available through Emory's Financial Aid Office. Students can borrow up to the budgeted cost of attendance less any scholarships, and loans are available for both domestic and international students. For detailed information about student loans and how to apply please visit Emory's Office of Financial Aid website or contact 404-727-6039.

Additional payment options are also available through Emory University's Financial Aid Office:

  • Third-party billing (bills sent directly to sponsor) payable at the beginning of each term
  • Deferred payment plan (payment due 60 days after the end of each term)

FAFSA

Federal financial aid is also available in the form of low interest and interest-deferred loans. To receive the most favorable student loan, the Emory Office of Financial Aid recommends that you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible. Evening MBA candidates must complete the FAFSA form.

Outside Resources

A variety of scholarships are available to graduate students from private organizations, industry associations, school and fraternal alumni associations, and foundations. Useful online scholarship search resources include FinAid, FastWeb, Scholarships.com, and Peterson's.

Promissory Notes

Promissory notes can be dropped off at the Evening MBA Program Office with your tuition check and we will deliver them to the Bursar's Office. Or you can register and pay online through Emory's Online Pathway to University Students (OPUS).
