Graduate Assistantships

What is a Graduate Assistantship?

In an assistantship role, students will work 20 hours a week for the university. In return, they receive a tuition fee waiver scholarship and a stipend for living expenses. Duties may include collaborating with professors or department heads to support university operations. This is a great way to help fund your MBA!
