Tuition and fees

Financing options for the Global Online MBA

The tuition and fees for the Global Online MBA are €25,000, which includes access to the learning platform and content, required case study licenses, as well as a Smart Certificate.

For the greatest financial flexibility, the Global Online MBA tuition can also be paid by module:

Module Price in EUR
Module 0 + enrollment fee 4,000
Module 1 3,500
Module 2 3,500
Module 3 3,500
Module 4 3,500
Module 5 3,500
Module 6 3,500
Total tuition 25,000

The first payment of the non-refundable enrollment fee including Module 0 is due within four weeks after your acceptance to the program and at least two weeks before the program start. The remaining module payments are due at least two weeks before the respective module start.


Early-bird discount*

For students who apply by the early bird deadline, the Module 0 and non-refundable enrollment fee is reduced by €2,000. The first payment will thus be €2,000 instead of €4,000, reducing the overall tuition to €23,000.


Payment in full*

If you choose to pay your tuition in full before the program start, you qualify for a 10% discount of the overall price of €25,000.

*Please note: It is not possible to combine the early bird tuition discount with the full advance tuition payment discount of 10%.


Financing tip! Should you qualify for the tuition discounts above, your Global Online MBA could cost less than €1,000 per month when dividing the remaining tuition across the 24 months of the program.

Optional courses and electives at an additional cost

Some optional parts of the Global Online MBA can be purchased for an additional fee: Personalized career coaching sessions, as well as the Global Experience elective, are offered at an additional cost should you choose to attend them. You can choose to add these options after beginning the program. For more information, please contact the Admissions Office.
