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.
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
- Administrative support from the program office as a one-stop point of contact for students in the program.
- An international trip included in a credit-bearing course.
Program fees for the Fall 2017 entering cohort will be announced soon.
PLEASE NOTE: Tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice by The City University of New York Board of Trustees.
Executive students may consider financing their education using one or more of the following:
Corporate Sponsorship and Reimbursement
Students may be sponsored (in whole or part) or receive tuition reimbursement 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. 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.
Financial sponsorship from an employer is not required as a condition for admission into the EMSF program.
Many self-sponsored, self-paying or partially sponsored students apply for student loans.
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 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:
Baruch's FAFSA school code is 007273
