Financing Your PMBA Program

UCR MBA Students Talking

Our graduate programs are made up of diverse and talented students who have demonstrated promise to become future business leaders – and we won’t let financial obstacles get in the way of your success.

Generous scholarships are considered for all qualified applicants based on a holistic review of your background. In fact, approximately 96% of our admitted students received scholarship funding. Your academic, personal and professional achievements can qualify you for several of the scholarships we offer.

California applicants receive an automatic tuition discount and are eligible for other scholarships. If you are applying from out-of-state or are an international student, we offer several exclusive scholarships for you as well.

Professional MBA Program Tuition

An MBA is a significant investment with promising return. The Professional MBA (PMBA) is an 80-unit program designed for working professionals to complete the program part-time or at a flexible pace. PMBA candidates have the ability to maintain their income while studying to advance their careers. According to an Alumni Perspectives Survey conducted in 2018, two in three part-time MBA alumni agree they received more promotions than peers without their degree (GMAC, 2018). The tuition is calculated by unit and payments are made on a quarterly basis.

Should you decide to pursue the PMBA program at a flexible pace, the program cost may be anticipated over the course of 3 or more years.
