Payment options

An MBA yields a lifetime of dividends, both professionally and personally. Pursuing an MBA, however, is a serious commitment of time and money and this investment needs to be carefully considered by applicants. To help assess the financial obligations required to attend our programs you should first acquaint yourself with the fees. You should also start considering your financing possibilities (savings, student loans or scholarships) early enough.
