Financial Support

Financial Aid

Most Executive MBA students finance their education through a combination of Notre Dame sponsored scholarships, external scholarships, personal income or savings and graduate student loans, including both private and federal loan programs. While some students qualify for corporate financial sponsorship through their employer, it is not required to apply to the program.

Financial Aid through Student Loans

If you will be seeking financial aid, the first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the official application for federal student aid at the University of Notre Dame. The Office of Financial Aid will assist you in exploring various loan opportunities.

Executive MBA Scholarships

We consider all admitted students for scholarships primarily based on each student’s academic and professional profile compared with other admitted students in each particular class. Recipients are selected for scholarships based on leadership skills, community service and other outstanding personal or professional accomplishments. Previous academic performance, letters of recommendation, and each applicant’s personal statement and demonstrated need also aid in the scholarship decision process. Applicants can indicate their desire to be considered for a scholarship on their application.
