Cost of Pursuing MBA in Europe

The cost of an MBA is much more than mere tuition fees—MBA candidates account for living expenses, such as housing and board, transportation, meals, health insurance, and other personal expenses. Some programs may demand fees and funding for activities and materials. Knowing how much expenses you will incur for an MBA program is helpful. Approximately one-third of European business schools offer need-based scholarships to assist with MBA tuition. Many programs also provide fellowships to assist with MBA tuition costs.

Here is the total cost of prominent European MBA schools for your reference:

European School Cost
Cambridge Judge£81,668 (2023 intake)
ESMT Berlin€70,975
