Tuition rates subject to Board of Regents approval.
A non-refundable $1,000 commitment deposit is required to reserve your seat in your preferred class section and enroll in the program. This amount is applied to your first tuition payment. Your tuition payment deadline is determined by the date you register for classes - class registration for Professional MBA students will open on/around September 1, 2022. Students are responsible for any late payment fees/fines assessed by the University of Georgia.
Students will be notified prior to each module about the course materials they will need for each class, as well as how to obtain specific materials (i.e. textbooks, cases, simulation access, etc.). Students are responsible for purchasing materials and can expect to spend between $2,000-$2,500 over the duration of the program.
The Professional MBA offers optional international and/or domestic residencies as elective courses during the second year of the program. While the program tuition excludes the costs associated with the trips, students can request additional student loan funding to cover the cost of the trips entirely. We recommend that students budget $1,500 -$2,500 for a domestic residency or $3,500–$5,000 for an international residency.
Students pay their tuition directly to the University of Georgia. UGA provides a full array of payment options.
If your company contributes to the cost of your degree, we make it easy. The University of Georgia can bill your company directly for your tuition and fees or provide tuition receipts and grade letters for company reimbursement.
Most Professional MBA students take advantage of federal and/or private student loan programs. Learn more about your options and how to apply from our Office of Student Financial Aid.
The Professional MBA Program offers a very limited number of scholarships. All candidates who submit an application are considered for scholarship opportunities – no additional paperwork is required. The number of awards, available scholarship funds, and selection criteria vary from year to year. Awards for candidates are based on merit (academic achievements including undergraduate GPA and/or test scores) or for non-profit or government sector employment.
