Tuition cost

Whereas other executive MBA programs' tuition may only include the cost of courses, our program costs are designed to be comprehensive and all-inclusive. As a Kellogg Executive MBA student, your tuition covers everything from classes and textbooks to accommodations on the Miami and Evanston campuses, meals, career services and more. That means less time worrying about the essentials and more time focused on the classroom.

The annual cost of tuition for cohorts beginning in September 2019 or January 2020 is $106,782. The total two-year cost is $213,564

Program costs are set in the spring. (Historically, tuition has increased 3 to 4 percent annually.) For budgeting purposes, please consider whether travel costs, loan fees or incidental expenses will apply to you. Note: Tuition covers the cost of accommodations, textbooks, and most meals for one global elective selection (two elective units). Students pay for the international travel to and from the global elective and deposits for emerging market course selections. For students taking more than one global elective, the tuition will cover textbooks and most meals; students will pay for accommodations, travel and deposits where applicable.
