Tuition does not include the $150 non-refundable application fee, application verification fees, background check fees, mandatory Emory University fees (estimated at $275 per term), travel to and from Atlanta and any travel for the immersion experiences.
Tuition is paid in five (5) equal installments due at the beginning of each term. The number of courses taken each term does not impact the payment schedule.
Goizueta facilitates deferred payment, third party billing and other payment options.
Tuition bills are sent directly to student sponsors and are payable at the beginning of each term. Although some students will seek corporate sponsorships, it is not required for admission.
Deferred Payment Plan for Executive MBA StudentsThis payment plan defers the entire term's tuition payment until approximately 60 days after grades are posted. It is intended for students whose company is sponsoring a portion of the cost of the program, but requires a review of grades before making payment. Interested students must apply each term for this payment plan and sign a promissory note with a $70 non-refundable processing fee two weeks prior to the start of each term.
A variety of federal and private graduate student loans are available to finance your Executive MBA degree. For federal loan options, students must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you secure a federal loan, you must reapply each year by completing a new FAFSA form.
We encourage you to explore your financing options early and reach out to your Emory University financial aid representative will be happy to guide you through the process:
- Kymberley Dent (for students with last names A-G)
- Stacey Collier (for students with last names H-P)
- Jennifer Lyles (for students with last names Q-Z)
