  1. $1,000 (Deposit – upon acceptance)
  2. $4,500 (First Installment – one month after deposit)

MSBA Office of Admissions does offer flexible payment plans to accommodate special circumstances. Standard installments are broken down into smaller amounts and spread over time so long as the tuition balance is covered before program launch.

Like many higher education institutions, this fee covers the significant administrative costs associated with properly collecting, organizing and reviewing thousands of candidates prior to the interview stage.
Scholarships will be awarded on a very limited basis. Applicants requiring financial assistance are placed into a separate pool where they are carefully evaluated by the MSBA Office of Admissions. For more information, please contact:
