Our MBA program offers graduate assistantships to full-time students each academic year. There is also potential for summer assistantships based on need and budget availability.

The graduate assistantship award is equivalent to full-time tuition and fees, plus a monthly stipend of $800 up to a maximum of $6,400 per academic year (September through April). Full-time tuition is for nine graduate credits per term, up to a maximum of 36 graduate credits per year, if the student's position and/or program includes summer enrollment.

Room and board, additional tuition charges, books and incidental costs are not included.

Our graduate assistantships are designed to provide financial support and stimulating, practical learning experiences to graduate students. Students will have an opportunity to work with faculty (including but not limited to) supporting department initiatives, administrative duties, marketing and event support, student support and possible research duties for the Rowland School of Business.

Graduate assistantships are awarded for a one-year period. They are renewable for a second year based on the recommendation of the faculty mentor; the decision will be made by the department chair.

Both U.S. citizens and international students are eligible to apply.
