Tuition, Financial Aid, & Scholarships


Saint Louis University takes pride in being a “Best Buy” college according to U.S. News & World Report. The John Cook School of Business is committed to educational excellence in the Jesuit tradition. This commitment is validated by our scholarship programs that have been created to recognize academic excellence and to make Saint Louis University affordable.

Tuition & Financial Aid

Estimated tuition for the MHA/MBA dual degree (combination of both programs over two years) is $84,447 based on 2013-2014 rates.

The Cook School, in its efforts to maintain competitive and viable options for students, works hard to ensure that our programs are affordable so that every student has the opportunity to achieve success.

Merit-based Scholarships

Due to the generosity of several supporters of Saint Louis University, all applicants who are admitted to the full-time MBA Program are considered for merit-based scholarships. No separate application is necessary.


Graduate Assistantships 

A limited number of competitive MBA graduate assistantships are available. Graduate Assistantships offer a stipend of up to $1,800 per semester in exchange for 10 hours of work per week, and are available only for fall and spring semesters. Assignments are determined by a combination of student interest and departmental needs and are announced towards the end of the summer term. All applicants who are admitted to the full-time MBA Program are also considered for graduate assistantship awards. No separate application is necessary. 


Competitive Scholarships 

In addition to merit-based awards and graduate assistantships, competitive MBA scholarships from the John Cook School of Business are available. Anyone accepted to the SLU full-time MBA program can apply for these competitive scholarships. Please note that the total of Saint Louis University scholarship awards in a semester cannot exceed tuition in that semester. Therefore, your scholarship levels may be adjusted accordingly across semesters.
