The decision to invest in your graduate education is an important step toward meeting your future goals. Hybrid MBA students typically use a combination of company-sponsored tuition support and educational loans to fund their educational endeavors.

Estimated Expenses

Tuition for the class enrolling in May 2023 is estimated at $59,400* for the 42 credit program, billed in six equal installments of $9,900.  Tuition will not increase for the duration of the two-year program, as long as the student maintains enrollment and graduates on schedule.

Financial Aid

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance through federal loan programs you should complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is completed online by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov. Follow the instructions provided to secure a “PIN” number and save the number for further use. The University of Colorado Boulder treats the summer term as the final semester of the academic year. Therefore, to receive financial aid for the summer of 2023, it is necessary to complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA. For the 2023-2024 academic year, complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA.

Note: If you are interested in receiving federal funding for the summer of 2023, you should complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA as soon as possible.

Quick Steps to Financial Aid

  1. Complete the appropriate FAFSA using your Federal PIN to sign the form online.
  2. Once completed online the FAFSA processors will send to CU-Boulder electronically. The CU/Boulder school code is 001370.
  3. Accept the loan amounts you wish to receive for each semester. Complete the master promissory note by going to www.studentloans.gov using your FAFSA PIN number.
  4. Financial aid for the Evening MBA program is managed by the Division of Continuing Education. For more information, please contact a Financial Aid Advisor at 303.492.5091, or at cefinaid@colorado.edu.

Company Reimbursement

Many of our Hybrid MBA students receive some educational reimbursement support from their employers. Note: While the program takes two years to complete, you might be eligible for three calendar years of financial support from your employer. Be sure to investigate these opportunities through your company's human resources department.

Tuition for CU-Boulder Employees

The Leeds School of Business is supportive of our CU Employees. If you are an employee who has been with CU for at least one year in a position of more than 50% time and you plan to begin your graduate degree with us, reach out for more information.
