Financing Your EMBA.

The EMBA adds value to both the student and their employer, so many companies already offer tuition assistance programs for their employees. We have also partnered with EMBA students to develop a specific support plan if their companies don't have one in place yet. Contact us to talk about your options.   

Graduate students enrolled in at least 4 units per semester may be eligible for up to $20,500 per academic year from the Federal Direct Loan program. Read more about financing your EMBA (pdf).
