Costs and Financial Aid

Tuition Costs

The cost of the Executive MBA program is $45,000 ($833.33 x 54 credit hours) for the full two-year program. This includes:

  • Tuition
  • Textbooks and class materials
  • Travel and lodging expenses for the Foreign Business Excursion

These costs are divided into six payments throughout the program.   Please refer to our Tuition Schedule.

Employer Sponsorship

Employer sponsorship is encouraged, but not required. Several businesses in the area fund some or all of their employees' tuition. They find the MBA education beneficial to the whole organization, as Executive MBA students are able to incorporate new management insights from the classroom into the workplace.

Financial Aid

Student Loans

Stafford (Federal Direct) loans are handled by our Financial Aid Liaison Steve Hamberger. Many students are eligible for this guaranteed loan sponsored by the United States government.   

Graduate Plus Loans are available for Graduate and Professional Degree Students. You are not required to have financial need, but you will need to fill out the FAFSA form and meet all eligibility requirements including a credit check.

It is important to note that the Executive MBA program is considered by BYU to be a part-time graduate program, even though students are enrolled full-time during certain semesters and terms. 


Stafford Loan (Federal Direct) disbursements are scheduled to coincide with the regular university semester/term start dates. For all Executive MBA academic students must arrange their financing to pay tuition on or before the established due dates, regardless of Stafford Loan (Federal Direct) disbursement dates.


Deferral of a Stafford Loan (Federal Direct) is not automatic upon enrollment in a program of graduate study. There are several categories under which a deferral can be obtained; some are precluded by the fact that the Executive MBA program is considered a part-time program. It is important that you determine your individual situation by reviewing the laws governing Stafford Loan (Federal Direct) deferrals.

Reimbursement Documentation

The MBA office will provide employer reimbursement documentation to students as needed. The turnaround time for grades, transcripts, and reimbursement letters is one month from the end of a semester or term. We cannot guarantee that reimbursement documentation will be provided in time for students to receive reimbursement from their companies before the next tuition payment is due. Students are responsible to pay tuition when it is due, regardless of whether they have received reimbursement from their company.
