The course fees are EUR 5,625 per semester / EUR 26,500 for the 24-month overall programme including exam fees for applications received prior to 31 May (i.e. including the early bird discount of 12.5% otherwise EUR 30,000). The course fees include the mentoring programme as well as participation in a large number of extracurricular events.
Tuition fees may be tax deductible.
Financing with the assistance from the employer
The Executive MBA is designed to train students for management tasks in companies and to lay the foundation for success. This is attractive to students and companies alike, which is why many employers support their employees both in financial terms and by granting additional free time for the EMBA programme.
Scholarships and funding programmes
Each year HSBA awards several part and full scholarships to cover the course fees (for example together with the VDI [“Verband Deutscher Ingenieure”:
Association of German Engineers], Commerz Collegium zu Altona (a traditional association of businesspeople in the Hamburg district of Altona) and Verein der Freunde und Förderer der HSBA (an association of HSBA sponsors)). The funding is awarded to particularly gifted applicants who require and qualify for financial assistance. Student loans are also available with special terms and conditions from banks cooperating with HSBA. There are also numerous scholarships for students available from foundations and other institutions. HSBA is happy to provide advice on these programmes.
The JOB & MASTER programme
HSBA’s JOB & MASTER programme is a free placement service for applicants looking for a study place who wish to combine challenging academic and professional development. Many companies that work together with HSBA value the highly trained applicants from different specialist areas and the possibilities for further education provided by HSBA’s MBA programme. The programme is aimed primarily at candidates for the M.Sc. in Global Management & Governance. In special cases MBA candidates may enter the programme, especially if they do not live in Hamburg and are looking for a new professional challenge.
It is a matter of particular concern to HSBA to ensure that highly qualified and motivated candidates can attend the Master's degree programme despite the costs. Thus, HSBA supports particularly gifted applicants who require financial assistance in different ways. Next to the early bird discount of 12,5%, HSBA scholarships for 25% and 50% of the course fees are offered.

Other scholarships and funding programmes
Currently, some 25%, 50%, and in exceptional cases 100% scholarships within the HSBA funding programme are still available for particularly eligible applicants. HSBA hereby particularly supports applicants with the following backgrounds:
- Expatriates and international professionals
- Women in Leadership: (future) female leaders
- Practitioners with relevant work-experience without a first university degree
- Professionals from small- and medium-sized as well as family-owned companies
All candidates should add a motivation letter to their application, in which their special suitability for the scholarship is explained.
