  • Tuition and fees (for 45 credits)

  • All meals while classes are in session on Friday evenings and Saturday
  • Required hotel accommodations during orientation and residencies
  • Graduation cap and gown
  • Facilities with access to printers, copiers and wireless internet

Executive MBA Program Costs

Tuition (fall 2024 start)$17,800/semester
Enrollment deposit$1,500
Total Investment$89,000*


  1. Program is comprised of five semesters over three calendar years.
  2. Executive MBA tuition applies to all in-state and out-of-state domestic students.
  3. University policy requires that all international students (i.e. Non-U.S. residents) are automatically enrolled in and charged for the MSU Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP). To avoid these fees students must demonstrate health care coverage that meets the waiver criteria. Additionally, international students are charged a $75 student fee each semester.
  4. In addition to tuition, the University charges a $25 invoice processing fee for sponsored students if their employer does not cover this fee.

*Expected tuition for the Class of 2026. The MSU Board of Trustees will approve tuition in June 2024.


All admitted students are required to pay the non-refundable enrollment deposit to reserve their seat in the EMBA program. This enrollment deposit is applied to the first tuition payment. Tuition is billed in five equal installments at the beginning of every semester.

When I began my Executive MBA at Michigan State University, I knew what all of my commitments would be. The program is all inclusive. Books, class materials, course registration and even meals are all taken care of. All you have to do is show up and learn.
