Executive MBA (EMBA) Program Cost
Upon acceptance into the Executive MBA (EMBA) program, a $3,000 deposit is due within 10 business days of the offer of admission. Your deposit is subtracted from the overall EMBA program cost and the remaining balance is payable in five equal payments due at the beginning of each semester. If you choose not to enroll in the program, the deposit is non-refundable. The cost of the EMBA program for the class starting August 2019 is $65,000 for Texas residents and $79,500 for non-residents. This program cost includes:
- Course registration
- Access to individual sessions with an executive coach
- Text books
- Online course materials (course packs and case studies)
- Parking pass
- Breakfast and lunch (on full-class days)
- Refreshments and light snack available during class meetings
- Technology package (i.e. tablet)
- Off-site orientation including 2-day hotel booking
- Eight to 10-day sponsored international trip including hotel, flight, food, and cultural experiences
We recognize that commitment to the EMBA program is an important investment in yourself and your future. Many students fund the program through a combination of personal funds, corporate reimbursements and financial aid. If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you will likely be eligible for federal student loans. You can read about, and apply, for most loans through UTSA’s financial aid website. To determine your eligibility for federal student loans you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
EMBA Student Loan Options
As an EMBA student at the graduate level, you are eligible to apply for a Federal Direct Stafford Loan. With a Federal Direct Stafford Loan, students may borrow a maximum of $20,500 in Federal Direct Unsubsidized loans per academic year. The UTSA EMBA program covers two academic years, which means you could borrow up to $41,000. Basic eligibility requirements for the Stafford Loan include that the student must:
- Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or eligible non-citizen
- Complete and submit the FAFSA before the annual deadline
- Enroll at least half-time in an accredited college
- Not be in default on any other education loan
As an EMBA student, you may also apply for an additional loan, called a Graduate PLUS Loan, which is credit-based. Some students use this loan to make up the difference between the program cost and the Federal Direct Stafford Loan. For more information about student loans, please refer to UTSA’s financial aid website.
Post 9/11 GI Bill
The EMBA program will bill Veterans Affairs (VA) each semester on your behalf and the VA will remit payment of eligible charges directly to UTSA. You are responsible for paying the difference between the full costs of the EMBA program, less your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. You may fund your program through a combination of personal funds, corporate reimbursements, Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, Hazlewood credits and financial aid. For additional information, please contact the Veteran’s Certification Office.
