Your investment

Focusing on your education is an exciting opportunity, and we’re committed to making a Duke MBA accessible to all qualified candidates. Here you’ll find basic information about the Accelerated Daytime MBA program costs. For more detailed information about merit scholarship options, how to apply for student loans, and to see other financial aid opportunities, please visit Financing Your Degree.

Tuition for the Accelerated Daytime MBA program is based on a percentage of the two-year Daytime MBA program tuition. With a two-year Daytime tuition of $70,000 in the current academic year (entered July 2019), the Accelerated Daytime MBA tuition would be $86,835. The reason for the pricing differentiation is that Accelerated MBA students will take more than half of the two-year Daytime course credits in their one-year accelerated program. Two-year Daytime MBA students entering July 2019 will pay $70,000 tuition in their first year and $70,000 plus an approximate increase of 3% in their second year.

In planning for an entrance date of July 2020, students should budget an increase of approximately 3%. Tuition will be finalized by March 2020, and this site will be updated with an estimated Cost of Attendance accordingly.

Estimated Expenses (class entering July 2019) Cost (USD)
Tuition 86,835
Estimated Medical Insurance & Other Fees 7,482
Estimated Educational Supplies 666
Estimated Living Expenses 18,702
Estimated Total Cost of Attendance (USD) 113,685
