Invest in yourself

The ESMT MBA is an excellent investment into your future. On average, graduates earn more than double the tuition during the first year of employment after the program.

Most students fund their studies with a mix of personal funds, loans and scholarships. To help make studying for an MBA a reality, ESMT Berlin offers access to the following loan programs for part-time MBA students.

  • Prodigy Finance
