Tuition & Fees

Research has shown that investment in a quality MBA program pays off in the long run with significantly higher salaries and better opportunities for career development and growth.

The Hofstra Online MBA program is priced competitively and is based on the prevailing graduate tuition rate per credit hour. The 45-credit program can be completed in a cohort sequence over 20 months, and students also have the option of taking a longer time to complete the program. Prevailing graduate tuition rate for the specific academic year determines the total cost of the program.

  • Attendance at the orientation residency is optional. Incoming students are encouraged to attend the residency as valuable information related to the program and strategies to succeed in the program are discussed. The 3-day residency, over the first weekend of the Fall semester, also includes interactive faculty lead sessions, teamwork sessions and opportunities to network with current students and program alums.
  • The Global Practicum is optional at additional cost. Participation in the Global Practicum adds a significant value to the program and to your degree. With the overall, global Strategic focus in the program, you will get the critical, practical knowledge you need to progress in your career.
  • An innovative Executive Coaching component is included in the program to assist in career skills and development for all students in the Online MBA program. This is available to you at a nominal cost.

Graduated payment options are provided during the duration of your program.
