Estimated annual expenses for the 2018-19 academic year are shown below, including tuition & student budget.

For added curriculum flexibility, the Broad MBA program offers a block tuition structure. Under the block tuition structure, students may take up to 18 credits per semester, with a maximum enrollment of 68 credits in the 4 semesters of the MBA program. Through periodic meetings with the MBA advising team, students choose a mix of required and elective courses to create their ideal degree plan.

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.
