Financing Your Degree

A return on your investment that you can count on

Compared with other top 30 programs, Fisher has ensured that it offers a very competitive package. The consistently strong job offerings our graduates secure are a favorable return on the investment in earning a Fisher MBA degree.

For many years running, more than 90 percent of Fisher MBA graduates have secured jobs within three months after graduation. 

Funding Sources

Available funding is a key factor to consider when choosing your MBA program. There are two main sources with respect to paying for your MBA: merit-based and financial need-based. A majority of our students take advantage of both offerings.

There is ample merit-based funding available at Fisher. We offer university fellowships, Fisher-specific assistance, housing scholarships, and graduate assistantships.


Cost of Living

Ohio State is located in Columbus, Ohio, a bustling city of over 1.5 million, with extensive offerings in cultural, business, and recreational activities. Its Midwest location benefits our students with comparatively low rent and food costs.

Columbus enjoys a cost of living substantially lower than many other major U.S. cities. In the areas where many MBA students stay, an average one bedroom apartment runs from $650-$850 per month. This figure will vary according to individual housing preferences.

As you plan for your MBA program, we encourage you to take advantage of resources like the Council of Graduate Student's Budget Calculator to help in your planning.
