Paying tuition

Tuition for the Executive MBA is due over three calendar years.

  • One third of the tuition fees is due in October 2024, the first month of the program

Further expenses

In addition to tuition, students are expected to cover travel to and from modules and accommodation during all modules in Berlin and during Global Network weeks.

Any travel costs needed to complete the Practice Project are also the candidate’s responsibility.

We find students require about €13,000 on average for travel and accommodation fees during the EMBA. Your final total could be slightly higher or lower depending on how far you must travel.
