With costs below national and state averages, the Missouri State University MBA program is committed to providing a quality, affordable education. In addition to these lower costs, we offer a variety of graduate assistantships and scholarships that will help you follow your passion and find your place. Missouri State COB undergraduate students can realize additional savings through the accelerated option.
Graduate students are encouraged to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year of study. For more information about how to apply for federal and state financial aid, please visit the Office of Student Financial Aid.
Graduate assistantships are on-campus opportunities that help pay for your MBA, offer a stipend and provide valuable resume-building experience in administration, research and teaching. MBA students are encouraged to apply for assistantship opportunities all over campus.
You may submit a copy of your application, a resume and three professional references to the department(s) seeking applicants.
For assistantships available in the College of Business Administration, please contact the appropriate department.

Students are notified of their awards in early April.
