Participating in our Online track requires an investment of € 25,000. This is a competitive rate, yet undoubtedly it is still a solid investment that needs to be well considered. We try to assist our participants in the best possible way and therefore choose to offer a payment scheme that spreads the payment across the duration of the programme.
Total costs for joining the Online track are € 25,000. These costs include the tuition fees of all programme components of the online learning environment, costs of all e-learning materials (e-books, articles and cases), access to the university’s physical and virtual learning facilities, and participation in the three educational weeks. The sum does not include travel expenses and accommodation costs. The programme currently does not provide for scholarships of any kind.
The MaastrichtMBA tuition fees are equally allocated over the two years of the educational programme, hence you are being invoiced as you go. No attendance in one of those online courses means no invoice and the fees will automatically be spread over the time of your study, no matter if you spend two years on your study or the maximum of four years. The programme fee is divided over three instalments of the total amount.
|Instalment 1||Start of the programme||€ 8,500|
|Instalment 2||Before start fourth online course||€ 8,500|
|Instalment 3||Before start seventh online course||€ 8,000|
Although we do not offer scholarships for MaastrichtMBA, please keep in mind that tax authorities can compensate for a part of the educational costs you make. As of January 1, 2022, the Dutch government replaced the tax deduction procedure by STAP assigned for Dutch residents. The STAP budget is 1000 euros (including VAT) per person per year. It can be used for any kind of continuing education or training and therefore, you can apply this budget when choosing for MaastrichtMBA. You can request a STAP budget on the UWV website. The application will need to be completed before the start of the programme and you can apply on specific moments in a year. Visit this page for more information and this page when to apply for the STAP budget.
If you reside abroad, please check with the tax authorities in your country of residence to explore your options. If you would like to know more about the STAP budget and/or tax deduction possibilities, please contact our office via this e-mail address.
Each year between April 1 and May 15, MBA students who work in the educational field can apply for a teacher grant (Lerarenbeurs) from DUO – the educational execution agency for the Dutch ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
