Tuition and Living Costs
The table below provides program cost information for the Texas Executive MBA class entering in August 2017. Returning students will not experience a rate increase or change. Your tuition will remain the same for your entire time in the program.”
A non-refundable $2,000 deposit is required once you accept our offer of admission in order to secure a seat in the program, and is credited toward your first semester’s program costs. Payments for each semester's tuition and fees are due approximately six weeks before each semester begins. For those who cannot establish Texas residency, there will be an estimated supplemental cost of $4,000 - $4,600 per semester, depending on the semester and the number of credit hours taken.
Return on Investment
Your degree starts paying dividends immediately. In fact, U.S. News and World Report named the Texas Executive MBA Program the 17th-best executive MBA program in the country—in large part because of how quickly and effectively you’ll advance in your career during school and after graduation.
MBA Career Management
We recognize that pursuing an MBA is a big investment in your future. To make that future attainable and that investment a strong one, UT Austin awards financial assistance to many Texas MBA students to help cover tuition and living costs.
Loans and Other Options
Education loans are only one of the many possible sources of funds to cover the cost of your MBA education. In today’s economic climate, students need to think carefully before taking on debt and seek to use alternative funding sources as much as possible.
If you're a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you'll likely be eligible for federal student loans. To determine your eligibility, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available January 1 of each year and has a priority application date of March 15. It is recommended that you have your FASA completed at least by June 1.
Once your FAFSA has been successfully processed, you may be offered federal loans.
If you choose to pursue a private loan, we recommend applying no sooner than a few months before you start the program. Most private loans are credit-based and the approval decision may expire. Check with your lender about the length of time your application will remain valid before you apply.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at FinancialAid@mccombs.utexas.edu.
For International Students
For an international student, there may be loan options. Better loan terms may apply if you have a U.S. citizen or permanent resident co-signer. We are not able to recommend any lenders specifically, but we will work with all banks and lending institutions.
We, as the University of Texas at Austin, cannot be your co-signer.
