  • Apply what you learn in the classroom to the workplace, helping you perform better at your job from day one.
  • Learn skills that will help accelerate your career exponentially.
  • Gain valuable knowledge, insights and confidence that will allow you to do business anywhere in the world.
  • Develop an entrepreneurial spirit that will help you grow in your current job, or even launch your own startup.
  • Expand your professional network, providing valuable new resources, including potential clients, investors and suppliers.

Program Fee

The EMBA program fee is set each spring for the class that will enter in September. The cost for the class entering in fall 2016 is $52,000, plus the flight to and from the international residency location. The program cost is billed in four equal installments payable before the start of each term. The cost of the EMBA program includes tuition, fees*, books and materials, tutoring for quantitative courses during your first year, breakfast, lunch and snacks during class days, most costs associated with the international residency, and a full-time staff dedicated to ensuring you a successful EMBA journey.

*This program fee does not include costs for UB health insurance, which you will be required to purchase if you are not already covered by a health care plan. If traveling from outside the Western New York area for the program, transportation to and lodging in Buffalo are not included in the cost of the program. The EMBA staff has secured special lodging rates with local hotels just minutes from North Campus.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to EMBA students. You can pursue a federal loan at fafsa.ed.gov or you may apply for one through a financial lending institution. 

Upon admittance to the program, a nonrefundable deposit of $1,000 is required. This deposit is credited to the first semester tuition.
