MBA Tuition and Costs  April 10, 2023 – 08:22 am
Columbia School of business

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 bottom is based on a moderate student lifestyle and represents the maximum amount of financial aid possible for the current academic year. Tuition is set by the University's Board of Trustees and is ratified in June of each year.

Estimated Student Budget 2016-2017

Item Cost
Tuition $68, 792
Mandatory Fees $3, 737
Health Services & Insurance $3, 882
Books & Supplies $900
Room & Board $21, 375
Personal Expenses $6, 026
Total First Year Budget $104, 712*

*Students may incur additional costs, such as study tours or club events.

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.
