Explanation of Costs

  • Living Expenses

    This cost of living figure was provided by the MBA Program Office and may not correspond exactly to the cost of living in Austin, which is very affordable when compared to other major business centers. These figures, unlike general cost of living figures for Austin, are specifically tailored to represent the cost of the standard of living generally pursued by our MBA students. Your lifestyle and family status affect your individual MBA Program costs.

  • Orientation Fee

    This fee funds activities and programs designed to orient incoming MBA students to UT and the McCombs School of Business. These funds support orientation graduate staff salaries, program design and printing, receptions, speaker fees, socials, meals and transportation needs associated with all orientation activities.

  • Laptop

    This estimate for a new laptop was provided by the MBA Program Office base on past student data; students are not required to have a specific model, but are required to have a laptop computer that is able to run the current versions of both Microsoft Windows and Office and connect to wired and wireless Ethernet networks. While there are no restrictions on whether you use a Mac or PC computer, students in the past have sometimes experienced compatibility issues while using Mac computers. Please be mindful of this if purchasing a new laptop.
