Tuition & Fees
Executive Programs are designed to offer administrative ease and convenience. All administrative contact, including registration, is provided through Zicklin's Executive Program offices in New York City and Mumbai.
The total program cost for the Modular EMSF in New York City in 2018 is $38,500 USD. This includes a range of services, such as:
- All tuition and fees for 10 modules, including any taken in Mumbai
- All educational materials
- Meals and refreshments on classroom days
- Administrative support from the program office as a one-stop point of contact for students in the program
When traveling to Mumbai or New York City to attend each module's two consecutive weekends in the classroom, students cover their own travel and lodging costs as needed. This gives students maximum flexibility and control over travel and accommodation expenses and allows Zicklin to keep tuition and fees as low as possible.
Possible Financing Sources
Your current employer may sponsor your education whole or in part or provide tuition reimbursement for courses or degrees completed. Speak to your manager and human resources representative before applying to determine the level of support your organization will provide. Some organizations have policies that differentiate support for executive master's programs or part- or full-time programs. Some organizations include general tuition reimbursement as part of a comprehensive benefits package rather than a separate sponsorship program.
Student loans from private lenders are also an option for executive students. Speak to your accountant or tax advisor about credits, deductions, and tax treatment of student loan interest and employer financial support for continuing your education.
Student Loans for U.S. Students
Many self-sponsored, self-paying, or partially sponsored U.S. students apply for student loans.
The most common first option is the Federal Direct Student Loan Program. Eligible students can currently apply for up to $20,500 USD per academic year under the federal program. This loan is disbursed in two installments, and the interest rate is set near the end of your program.
The first step in applying for loans is completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at: fafsa.ed.gov. Baruch's FAFSA school code is 007273.
Please visit the Baruch College Graduate Student Financial Aid website for general information about student loans.
Fees for Extending the Program
Program costs may be adjusted if you complete the program at your own pace. CUNY reviews and sets tuition annually. You may be subject to an added cost, on a pro-rated basis, to reflect any future CUNY tuition increase for modules completed after 11 months. All 10 modules must be completed within 36 months. Any additional cost will be calculated when a CUNY tuition change is announced.
Students in the Mumbai program who opt to complete more than one module in New York City will pay an adjustment to tuition to reflect local charges.
