Asking for MBA Tuition Reimbursement

Let’s Talk About Tuition Reimbursement in Four Steps

Each person considering taking the time and effort to earn an MBA has their own motivations: promotions, higher salaries, expanding their business acumen, gaining respect and increasing their credibility in the office. Even if their reasons for pursuing an MBA differ, each potential candidate likely shares the same question: How will I pay for this program?

We’ve got good news for you! Many companies are willing to offer tuition reimbursement or have tuition assistance programs already in place to help with the cost of your MBA. In fact, a 2017 World at Work survey found that 92 percent of U.S. companies offer some form of tuition reimbursement, but the average employee participation in these tuition assistance programs was only around 5 percent.1 If you’d like to take advantage of this often-overlooked resource, download our tuition reimbursement guide.
