Program Tuition and Fees
Full Program Cost: $48,500
Executive Programs have a different fee structure than other graduate programs at the Zicklin School of Business. The programs are designed to offer administrative ease and convenience, and all administrative contact is provided through the Executive Programs office. This permits students to concentrate and devote their energy to their academic work and careers, and not worry about administrative matters.
Program fees include a wide variety of services to students, including:
- All college tuition, student technology, activity and graduation fees
- All textbooks and educational materials
- Class day meals & refreshments during breaks
- Most of the cost of the required International Study experience (includes group airfare, double occupancy hotel accommodations, ground transportation while on the trip and most meals)
- Administrative support from the program office as a one-stop point of contact for students in the program.
PLEASE NOTE: Full program cost is subject to approval by The City University of New York Board of Trustees. Tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice by The City University of New York Board of Trustees.
The EMSIS requires a non-refundable Acceptance Deposit of $2,500 to confirm enrollment in the program; the remaining balance of the program fee is due in installments throughout the program.
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
Please visit the Baruch College Graduate Student Financial Aid web site for general information about student loans.
