Financial Aid for Executive MBA

The EMBA program is an investment in your career. We see this investment as a partnership between you, your employer, and the Asia School of Business. While ASB does not directly provide financial aid, we offer support and guidance throughout your EMBA journey.

We are happy to meet with your company’s HR Team to discuss the program, the benefits, and what can be gained by sponsoring a student.

  • Time Off of Work
    The Executive MBA Program requires approximately 2-3 weeks off per semester, across 4 semesters, in addition to weekend coursework. A ll employers must agree to let you out of the office during residency weeks. Some will agree to give you additional time off without taking it out of leave. Others request that their employees use some or all of their annual leave to complete the program.

  • Financial Support
    Financial support may include full or partial sponsorships from your employer. It is not uncommon for some larger companies to fully sponsor their employees. When sponsorship occurs, it is not uncommon to be bonded.
