Financing Your MBA

Pursuing your 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. Our students combine financing options available through outside resources, scholarships, personal funds and Emory University's Office of Financial Aid to help realize their MBA goal.

Program Costs

Based on the usual 8 semester program duration, typical semester tuition for students enrolling in Fall 2015 will be $9,200 with an estimated total program tuition from start to degree of $73,600. Tuition will vary for students choosing to take additional or fewer courses in a given semester. Tuition figures do not include student fees estimated at $275 per semester, or the cost of books which may range from $100-400 per semester.


All applicants to the Evening MBA program will be considered for general merit-based scholarships during the admission review process. Award decisions are based on academic performance, professional experience, leadership, and overall profile. Typical awards are equal to approximately one quarter of total program tuition and are communicated with the admission decision. No additional application materials are required, though applying by Round 4 is recommended for first consideration.

Applicants employed by nonprofit organizations, other than Emory University, may be awarded the Evening MBA Nonprofit Scholarship designed to support talented nonprofit sector professionals as they seek to apply business acumen to the unique challenges of not-for-profit organizations. No separate application is required, though additional documentation may be requested.

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)


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,, 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).
