EMSF Program Fees, Sponsorship & Student Loans
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. Students are registered as part of a cohort 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 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
- Pre-program Boot Camp and residential orientation for incoming students
- Workshops and group tutorial/review sessions
- 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.

Corporate Sponsorship and Reimbursement
Students may be sponsored (in whole or part) or receive tuition reimbursement from their employers. Our office can assist you in framing your conversation with your employer with regard to the difference and added value a graduate degree taken in an executive program has in terms of return on investment (ROI) for the employer, the ability to apply what you learn almost immediately which is an added value to your organization, and how the schedule of the EMBA or EMSF program is a convenience to the employer.
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. We feel this is an important step since some organizations and companies have policies that differentiate the support provided for Executive Masters programs from Part Time or Full Time programs.
Sponsorship is not required as a condition for admission into the EMBA or EMSF program.
Many self-sponsored, self-paying or partially sponsored students apply for student loans to assist in the finance their education. The Executive Programs office can assist you with the process and provide you with information about the various options available to students.
The most common first option is the Federal Direct Student Loan program. Eligible students can apply for up to $20,500 per academic year under the Federal Direct Loan program. This loan is disbursed in two installments (1/2 in Fall semester and the other 1/2 in the Spring semester). The current rate on this type of loan is adjusted and will be set near the end of your program.
Alternative student loans from private lenders are also options available to students.
We also recommend that you speak to you 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 loans is completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at:
*Please note: the FAFSA for new students beginning their program in fall 2016 will become available online in January 2016.
Baruch's FAFSA school code is 007273
