Tuition and costs
Living and Other Expenses
The above information is for the class entering in the fall of 2016.
* Tuition is subject to review and/or change, with approval by the University Provost's Office and Case Western Reserve University Board of Trustees.
* Students are also responsible for the cost of transportation for international study tour in the summer. Actual costs will vary based on personal spending choices. Tuition includes full breakfast and lunch during all residencies.
* According to the Department of Education’s Cash Management Regulations: Under proposed §668.164(c)(2), if an institution includes the costs of books and supplies as part of tuition and fees it must separately disclose those costs and explain why including them is in the best financial interests of students. Case Western Reserve, Weatherhead School of Management provides all books, cases and articles to the students enrolled in the Executive MBA Program. These materials are delivered to the students prior to, or at the start of each term. The total cost of books, cases and articles is approximately $2,460 per student over the five semester program. While students could purchase these materials directly from the vendor it is usually at a higher cost (for example, Harvard Business Publishing cases sold directly to the student would be 67% higher). However, each student has the right to opt out of the all-inclusive tuition rate and purchase the materials on their own. Students will receive a $615 credit each fall and spring semester if they chose to purchase their own materials. A student who takes this option does so for the entire academic year (i.e., you can’t opt in or out by term). Students that opt out are responsible for locating and purchasing all materials prior to class deadlines and are responsible for paying all copyright charges according to current copyright laws.

Paying for a master's degree is an investment. One option to fund your Cleveland Clinic-Weatherhead EMBA tuition is a student loan. Weatherhead does not endorse any specific lender or receive compensatory benefit from any lender. We recommend careful consideration and comparison of all lending options and terms before entering into a loan agreement.
Loans are given to students who have demonstrated financial need and repaid in accordance with the specific terms of the loan. Student loans may be private or government-sponsored, subsidized (need-based) or unsubsidized (non-need-based). Interest may not start to accrue until after graduation or it may begin immediately.
The university’s Office of Financial Aid provides detailed information on the types of loans that are available and how to apply for them.
