EMBA Tuition & Fees

Program fees for the 22-month Executive MBA program cover the cost of your tuition, meals (morning and afternoon breaks and lunch on each meeting day), textbooks, course materials, orientation, graduation, guest speakers, annual international trip (excluding airfare), and miscellaneous fees. Special parking arrangements are also made. The program is entirely self-supporting, and receives no public monies or grants in financial support of its operation. All fees are based upon projections of anticipated expenses and are, therefore, subject to annual increases.

Upon acceptance to the program, you are asked to submit a $500 deposit to reserve your place in the class. The deposit is applied toward the first tuition payment, which is generally payable in the beginning of August. Tuition and fees for the incoming class that begins in August 2017 are $68,400 for the entire 22-month program.

SDSU's Executive MBA Program didn't end with the degree but provided a lifelong family where we get together and help one another achieve life goals. This family not only provides the fundamental knowledge but also the powerful network to make our dreams come true. I am so proud to be a part of this great family!
