Executive MBA (EMBA) Program Cost
The Executive MBA program cost for the class starting August 2021 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
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 Executive MBA 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.
If you meet one of the criteria below, you may qualify for a deposit reimbursement:
- UTSA Alumni Reimbursement: You have already successfully completed an undergraduate or master’s degree at UTSA.
- Company Discount: If five (5) or more people are registered from the same company or organization, each student is eligible for a deposit reimbursement.
How the Deposit Reimbursement Works
The maximum deposit reimbursement is $3,000, which is contingent on your successful completion of the Executive MBA program. You only need to meet one of the criteria above to be eligible, and reimbursement criteria cannot be combined for an additional discount.
Students who qualify under one of the reimbursement categories will have each of their five (5) semester payments reduced by $600 (5 x $600 = $3,000).
Students who leave the program before completion, will receive the reimbursement for any semesters paid in full, but are no longer eligible for the full deposit reimbursement.
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).
Student Loan Options to Assist with Executive MBA Program Cost
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 to cover the Executive MBA program cost, 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.
