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

Fuqua merit-based scholarships will be applied in all joint degree academic years that have a blended tuition rate and will pay towards Fuqua's share of the blended rate so you can plan for the entire cost of your education.  The scholarship award may range from partial to full Fuqua tuition share. There is no funding for new awards in subsequent years.

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.

International students who wish to borrow through the no-cosigner international student loan program will be able to borrow only Fuqua's share of the blended tuition and living expenses.
