Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Costs and Financial Aid

As an MD/MBA student, you pay the first two years of tuition to the School of Medicine.  The next three years of tuition (seven semesters) will be a blended rate split between Fuqua and the School of Medicine.

Fuqua Financial Aid and Merit Scholarships

The Daytime MBA program provides financial aid in the form of merit-based scholarships and through various student loan programs. Merit scholarship recipients are selected by the Admissions Merit Scholarship Committee. The selection criteria include:

  • Prior academic achievement
  • Demonstrated leadership qualities
  • Level of community involvement
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Professional accomplishments

Merit-based scholarships are awarded for the two-year duration of the MBA program and range from partial to full tuition so you can plan for the entire cost of your education. There is no funding for new awards in the second year.

Every admitted applicant is considered for a merit scholarship.  The awards are made independent of your eligibility for loans and work-study employment. If selected to be a scholarship recipient, you will receive notification of the award within two weeks after admission.

Fuqua has a variety of student loan programs that are available to both domestic and international students. You are eligible to apply for a combination of federal and alternative student loans to meet your cost of tuition, fees, books, and related living expenses.

School of Medicine Financial Aid and Scholarships

The School of Medicine will process all domestic student financial aid during the entire joint degree program. Learn more about the School of Medicine's financial aid programs and scholarships here.

International students who wish to borrow through the Coastal Federal Loan Program will be able to borrow only the Fuqua percentage of the blended tuition and living expenses.  Any scholarships awarded by Fuqua will be given in the 3rd and 4th years reducing any borrowing eligibility.
