Tuition and Financial Aid

Executive MBA (EMBA)

Earning your MBA is one of the most important investments you will make in your lifetime: it is an investment in yourself. The Graziadio Business School is dedicated to helping you explore ways to finance your education and to guide you through the financial aid process to help you meet your educational goals.

Executive MBA Tuition and Costs

We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact us for current information regarding tuition and related costs. Tuition costs for the Executive MBA fluctuate annually. Tuition increases are estimated at 4-6% per year. 

Financing Your Executive MBA

You have several options to choose from when financing your degree. Potential funding sources and payment options for students to consider include:

Financial Aid

There are three main types of financial aid: Federal Direct Stafford loans, the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS loan, and alternative educational loans. To begin the financial aid application process, submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate academic year.


The Graziadio Business School offers a number of special scholarships for EMBA students meeting specific scholarship criteria. Awards are made annually according to established requirements and amounts may vary based on the availability of funds. For more information about scholarships, visit our Financial Aid site or contact Murzi Kay in our Financial Aid office at murzi.kay@pepperdine.edu.

Company Reimbursement

Many companies offer full or partial tuition reimbursement for their employees. Check with your human resources department to determine what kind of education benefits are available. The University will allow a deferral of payment for students receiving tuition reimbursement from their employers and not receiving financial aid.

Payment Plans

The Graziadio Business School offers payment plans for your convenience. There are three options to consider – simple payment, two payment, and three payment options per trimester.

Veterans' Benefits

Pepperdine University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and assists students who have VA benefits. For more information regarding the GI Bill, post 9/11 benefits, the Yellow Ribbon Program, and other VA benefits, explore our Veterans Benefits page.
