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.

Ninety six percent of Fisher MBA graduates secure employment within three months of graduation—making Fisher #1 in employment success among the top 30 business schools. (U.S. News & World Report, 2013)

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.
