Estimated annual expenses for the 2013-14 academic year are shown below, including tuition & student budget.

For added curriculum flexibility, the Broad MBA program offers a block tuition structure. As an MBA student, you may register for up to 17 credits each semester without incurring additional cost, which gives you the option to pursue various business electives or electives in other fields of interest.

For budgeting purposes, you may find actual expenses differ from the amounts shown, depending on your lifestyle. For instance, housing costs differ for on-campus graduate housing versus an off-campus shared apartment.
