MBA Cost & Financial Assistance
Typically more than half of incoming Eberhardt MBA students receive some level of merit-based financial assistance. Consideration for an award is made on a rolling basis. Students who apply and are admitted early have a better opportunity to secure scholarships or graduate assistantships. Students will be notified of any award upon acceptance to the MBA and be asked to complete additional documentation to accept the award offered. Scholarship awards usually range from $2,000-$6,000 and a graduate assistantship award can cover up to one-half of tuition.
