Costs

Forbes magazine recently ranked the BYU MBA Program No. 15 in the country for return on investment for an MBA degree. The BYU MBA prepares its graduates to compete with graduates from other top-tier schools in an international marketplace. It provides a world-class business education, and it does so affordably. 

BYU is a non-profit corporation affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and significant portions of university operating costs are paid with the tithes of Church members.  In recognition of this support, Church members are assessed lower tuition fees than those who are not members.  This practice is similar in principle to that of state universities charging higher tuition to nonresidents. 

Although students who are not members of the LDS Church pay a higher tuition than members of the LDS Church, their tuition levels are still extremely affordable in comparison to similar programs. On average, graduates from top-tier private MBA programs leave with around $101,937.50 of student debt. BYU MBA students who are not members of the LDS Church can expect to graduate having spent $46,480 – nearly two-and-a-half times less than comparable programs (students who are members of the LDS Church should expect to spend $23,240).
