Fees and Deadlines

  • The current schedule will allow students to complete the program in 17 months or less.            
  • The $37,000 EMBA total program fee (plus $55.00 application fee) will be broken down into installments in amounts corresponding to the set of courses offered. The tuition covers the cost of textbooks, case materials, handouts, use of the MBA Lab, the University Library, parking, continental breakfast and lunch each Saturday, and air and lodging costs associated with the required international trip. Some meal costs for the international trip will be the responsibility of the candidates.                                   
  •  We have a two-step application process. Prospective candidates must submit a completed application first to the EMBA coordinator to be reviewed by the Craig School of Business, Graduate Business Programs office and later with the Admissions Office at Fresno State (please see their web site for applications, and additional information). The GMAT (graduate entrance exam to business schools) requirement is waived for executive applicants. The $55 application fee is paid by credit card when you submit the CSU Fresno application on line. For the first step in the EMBA application process, the applicant must submit an application, two writing samples (both found on admissions page, this web site), original transcripts for all Universities you have attended (two sets, one will be used in the second step of the admissions) and two letters of recommendation (found on admissions page, this web site).

The next EMBA cohort is on a first come, first served basis and pending having at least 30 candidates that have committed to pursuing their EMBA. The EMBA program is limited to a maximum of 35 executives and would be offered at most twice per year.
