Approximately 40 percent of Executive MBA students rely some form of financial assistance, which can include federal and private loans, Haas Scholarships, and instructorships. If you are planning to finance any part of the MBA for Executives Program, please review these webpages to determine your financial aid options. If you are entirely self-sponsored, you may be able to borrow the entire cost of the education if needed. The Haas Financial Aid Office at the University of California, Berkeley exists to help students efficiently secure the best federal, institutional, and outside funding to achieve their degrees.
Effective Fall 2016: All students will use CalCentral to review bills and financial aid award letters.
The MBA for Executives program crosses three of the university's standard academic years (July 1 to June 30). Consequently your financial aid will not follow the typical disbursement schedule. If pursuing loans, students will be required to apply for loans in accordance to the applicable calendar. Any scholarship funding will be disbursed in equal amounts across your five terms of enrollment. Details on billing and loan disbursements can be found on the Loan Options page.
To maintain eligibility for federal and institutional aid, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). All graduate students are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 for continued participation in the program and graduation. If your GPA falls below the minimum, you will be placed on academic probation and may become ineligible for the undisbursed portion of any federal loan. Further, students must successfully complete at least 6 units each term that they are enrolled.
