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 HCEMBA Program for Fall 2014 is $106,708 or $15,244 per individual quarter for 7 quarters.  Once you begin the HCEMBA program, tuition fees are locked for the duration of the program and do not increase.



Tuition includes all of the following:

  • Registration
  • Textbooks and materials
  • Course software
  • Parking permit
  • Lodging during all three residentials
  • Meals while on campus for Class

Tuition is paid on a quarterly basis, and does not include airfare for the Washington D.C. residential. A $1,000 nonrefundable deposit confirms your intent to register, and will be deducted from your first quarter tuition once paid.

The Merage School also offers a $1,000 tuition credit if you purchase a recommended laptop offered by our MBA Computing Services Center. Several options are available each fall.
