Executive MBA (EMBA) Tuition and Costs

Program Description

The Executive MBA (EMBA) is a 21-month program, with cohorts meeting in Ann Arbor and Los Angeles. Ann Arbor and Los Angeles students pay the same tuition and costs which cover:

  • Tuition and fees  (Veterans:  For additional information, click here.)
  • All Executive MBA course materials (books, course packs, and handouts)
  • Lodging and meals

Participants traveling from outside the respective regions may be eligible (depending on the distance traveled) to stay in campus facilities on Thursday night prior to Friday morning classes and Saturday night after classes.  Lodging and meals also are covered for the duration of extended on-campus residencies.

EMBA students are required to pay for all transportation to and from Ann Arbor and/or Los Angeles.

Residency, Tuition, and Loans

Michigan residents pay in-state tuition rates.
Non-Michigan residents pay out-of-state tuition rates.

U.S. citizens and permanent U.S. resident students may borrow through federal or private loans to cover the cost of tuition, fees and approved other costs.
International students may borrow through private loans but will need a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident cosigner.

Students who believe their status should be changed to Michigan resident, or for other questions regarding residency regulations, please contact the Residency Classification Office (734) 764-1400.

Company Sponsored Payments

While some EMBA students are sponsored in full or in part by their employers, financial sponsorship is not a requirement for admission.  Sponsored students are those students that are registered and require Student Financial Services to bill an outside sponsor for tuition and fees while they attend the University of Michigan.  Student Financial Services will process deferred third-party billing of tuition and fees to businesses, governments, agencies and organizations desiring to sponsor a student at the University of Michigan.
