The CIMBA programs have long been recognized as affordable. With Consortium of Universities for International Studies members all being public institutions of higher education, CIMBA is able to offer a superior academic experience at a cost far below that of other Europe-based MBA programs.
Full-time MBA Program
Full-time CIMBA participants spend up to $45,000 for the year in residence, including tuition, fees, books, study materials, housing, living, and miscellaneous personal expenses. Married and accompanied students spend more, with the additional amount dependent upon the student's family situation and lifestyle. There are a variety of scholarships to reduce and loans to delay program costs available to participants.
It typically takes less than three years to recover the cost (tuition and expenses) of attending the CIMBA program. In contrast, the recovery period is closer to five years for two-year MBA programs. The trade-off is that the CIMBA program is far more intensive and demanding, requiring students to be highly motivated.
Participants spend about €20,000 for the two-year program including tuition, fees, books, study materials, housing and living expenses in the U.S., and miscellaneous expenses. Married and accompanied students spend more in the U.S., with the additional amount dependent upon the student's family situation and lifestyle.
