Program Costs

Investing In Your Future

Tuition at the Merage School is all-inclusive. The cost is the same for all students: California residents, U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens.

The total cost for the EMBA Program starting Fall 2016 was: $109,914 or $15,702 per individual quarter (for 7 quarters). Tuition typically increases 2-5% for each entering class. However, once you begin the EMBA program, tuition fees are locked for the duration of the program and do not increase. Tuition is yet to be determined by UC Regents for 2017.


Program costs includes the following:


  • Tuition and fees
  • Registration
  • Course materials for all required courses
  • Lodging (and most meals) during all (3) Residentials
  • Parking
  • Meals while on campus for class

Tuition is paid on a quarterly basis, and does not include airfare for the international residential, transportation to and from airport, some meals/incidentials during your international residential.


A $1,000 non-refundable deposit confirms your intent to register, and will be deducted from your first quarter tuition when paid.
