Tuition and Costs

Recognizing that attending Columbia Business School is a significant investment of time and money, we strive to provide our students with various means to finance the degree.

The budget provided on the right is based on a moderate student lifestyle and represents the maximum amount of financial aid possible for the current academic year. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Also, visit Student Financial Services for a complete University guide, including the most up-to-date information on billing, payments, and financial aid. Note that tuition is set by the University’s Board of Trustees and is subject to change.

Given the rigor of the full-time MBA program, employment during the academic terms is discouraged, particularly in the first year. Teaching and research assistantships are offered directly through faculty members, although these appointments are generally awarded to doctoral students.
