Cost of Attendance

The standard cost of attendance includes tuition and MBA fees, books, rent, food, personal expenses, transportation, and a computer allowance. As you develop your budget, we encourage you to account for additional costs for transformational experiences beyond the classroom, such as Random Walks, Industry Treks, student groups, and events.
