Tuition  $2,850 $1,900
Program Fee $250 $350
Accommodations $900 $600
Round-trip airfare $1,400 $1,250
Total $5,400 $4,100

Notes about program costs:
  1. TUITION is discounted from the regular graduate business tuition rate of $1,475/unit to $950/unit to allow students to use the extra funds towards airfare, accommodations and other expenses. Students may choose to take up to 5 units abroad during the January term to realize the most cost savings. 
  2. PROGRAM FEE is non-refundable once you apply and are accepted to a program. This fee is not a deposit towards tuition, rather a separate payment towards on-site logistical fees such as classroom rentals, speakers,overhead, some group activities, some meals and select ground transportation. 
  3. AIRFARE is estimated as of February 16, 2018 using Please check current airfare using your departure and return cities for a more accurate estimate. If you are applying to take 5 units over intersession, you should research airfare very carefully and compare multi-city flights to round-trip and one-way flights. You may also want to price flights from LAX (Los Angeles) to potentially save on costs.
  4. ACCOMMODATION costs in Europe are currently estimates only. Calculations are based on double-occupancy accommodations and the current exchange rate. Students are not required to stay in group housing, although it is highly recommended to do so. Additional details on the group hotels will be provided to accepted students. 


Applications will be launched at the beginning of fall 2018. Please check back!
