New Call-to-action


At RIT, we understand that pursuing an Executive MBA is a significant investment.  While most students fund their education through some combination of employer reimbursement, personal savings, and federal and private loans, the Saunders College of Business does provide a limited number of scholarships for qualified applicants based on merit, need, and commitment.


Students will be billed for each semester of courses.  Courses dropped within the first four days of each session will be 100% refundable. Tuition refunds are available on a prorated basis after the add-drop period.

Commencement Ceremony (optional)

Students of the Online Executive MBA program are invited to participate in the commencement ceremony at RIT’s campus following completion of the program. Students are responsible for all costs associated with this trip, including their flight to and from Rochester, accommodations, and meals. The cost varies based on the dates of the trip, as well as the student’s location and time of booking. There is no cost for the cap and gown.
