Corporate Sponsorship and Reimbursement
We encourage students to seek partial or full financial sponsorship or receive tuition reimbursements from their employers. We recommend that you speak to your Human Resources department and manager prior to applying to determine the level of support your organization will provide. This is an important step since some organizations and companies have policies that differentiate the support provided for Executive Masters programs i.e. only covering tuition and not additional fees.
Sponsorship is not required as a condition for admission into the program.
Many self-paying or partially sponsored students apply for federal student loans to assist in financing their education. Some students also consider student loans from private lenders, such as their bank or financial institution.
We recommend that you speak to your accountant or tax advisor about the tax consequences and benefits (such as credits, deductions, and tax treatment of student loan interest and employer financial support) of continuing your education.
The first step in applying for federal loans is completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
Baruch’s FAFSA school code is 007273

The Zicklin School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
