Tuition and Financial Aid

Financial Aid Programs


Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans are available to students with or without financial need. In addition, students who qualify can secure student loan financing through private lenders. Learn more about loan options.

Alternative Forms of Aid

Bentley offers merit-based aid to qualified graduate students in the form of scholarships, student employment and assistantships. These awards are based primarily on academic, professional and personal achievement, with consideration given to the contribution that each individual can make to the graduate school population — without regard to financial need.

Dean's Leadership Award Program

Working with leading diversity and corporate partners, the Dean's Leadership Award program is a unique scholarship fund designed to provide students with the opportunity to pursue a graduate education. Three awards are available each year to active members of participating organizations. These awards are made to academically excellent students who have a demonstrated commitment to leadership and social responsibility. Two full-tuition scholarships are reserved for qualified candidates accepted into the full-time Emerging Leaders MBA program and the 11-Month Bentley MBA (one award for each program); an additional half-tuition scholarship is made available for qualified part-time students accepted into the fall semester of any of our evening programs.

Tuition (2017-2018 academic year)

Part-time Professional MBA, & All MS programs: $4,445 per three-credit course
One-Year Bentley MBA: fixed at $76,500
Two-Year Emerging Leaders MBA: $82,000 *Students may waive out of some or all of the foundation work which will reduce the tuition costs.

The Two-Year Emerging Leaders program is a cohort program which means the billing varies a bit from other graduate programs.  Specifically, students will be billed in equal Fall/Spring semester installments and the amount will be based on the total number of courses you are required to take determined at the time of your admission (up to 5 foundation courses could be waived bringing the minimum amount of courses to 13, including the required Global Business Experience course). Billing is not tied to the amount of courses you take in a semester or to the pace with which you complete the program.

There are fees and expenses associated with graduate study at Bentley in addition to tuition. The average budget breakdown provides an estimate of all costs that students incur.


Payment for tuition is due by your first class each semester and may be paid by check, MasterCard, VISA or Discover.
