Fees and funding

The total cost of the Oxford Executive MBA programme for home and overseas students is £117,080 for a September 2024 or January 2025 start.

Total course fees include:

  • tuition, all essential reading materials and meals
  • university and college services
  • membership of The Oxford Union

Other expenses include:

  • laptop
  • travel to and from each module
  • accommodation for each module (excluding the international modules*)

*There is currently one compulsory overseas module and optional overseas electives. For electives, you will need to cover all costs of travel and accommodation. For the compulsory module, the School pays for accommodation and meals, and you pay for your travel. 

When studying part-time your living costs may vary depending on your personal circumstances but you must ensure you will have sufficient funding to meet costs for the duration of your course.

The fees and funding section of the University of Oxford website provides further information about course fees, including information about fee status and eligibility and your length of fee liability.

Employer sponsorship


Some Oxford Executive MBA students receive full financial sponsorship from their organisations and many more ask their employers for part sponsorship.

Even if you do not ask for a financial contribution, you will need to come to an agreement over holidays and unpaid leave to suit the programme schedule. 

To help you assess what kind of sponsorship you might need, contact the EMBA Recruitment Team.

The Director’s Scholarship opens up the EMBA to people who may otherwise struggle to participate. It helps ensure that the students you sit beside at Oxford (and message, email and video call when away) are the most talented, diverse and experienced group you could meet.
