Funding Options and Tuition Fees
Financial hurdles should not be an obstacle to studying, as a degree at HSBA Hamburg School of Business Administration offers you unique career opportunities. However, the completion of a Master's programme requires financial planning. In the following we will give you an overview of the tuition fees and which financing options are available.
|Study Course||Course Fees for the Overall Programme|
|MSc Business Development||22,500 EUR|
|MSc Digital Transformation & Sustainability||28,500 EUR|
The course fees are for the overall programme. HSBA alumni and staff at partner companies, JOB & MASTER candidates as well as applicants that apply before 31 May receive a 10% discount.
The course fees include the exam fees but please be aware that costs related to the study trip are not included. Usually the employer pays a part of the course fees.
JOB & MASTER is a free service for applicants who are looking for a matching partner company for their part-time master’s degree at HSBA in order to combine demanding academic and professional development. Renowned companies based in Hamburg are seeking Bachelor’s graduates with a focus on business administration, economics, and related fields, who can be hired as young professionals in the company parallel to their part-time MSc degree.
Please note that not all students are eligible, for participation requirements please take a look at the JOB & MASTER Service.
If the applicant is already in employment, it may be possible, depending on the company, for the employer to cover most of the tuition fees.
With Income Share Agreements (ISA) tuition fees are financed in whole or in part* by CHANCEN eG. In return, starting from a fixed annual minimum income, the student will repay a fixed share of his income to the Chancen eG after completing his studies. The concept envisages that student repayments can be used to fund study places for future generations using the same model. On the website of Chancen eG you can find further information. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
*Partial financing is possible from a minimum funding limit of EUR 8,100.
Of course, you can also finance your studies yourself. If you finance your studies from your own resources, tuition fees can usually be deducted from tax. Additionally, there are some more options to support you:
As part of the HSBA study funding programme, funding of 25 or 50% of tuition fees is possible. We encourage especially incoming students to apply for these scholarships. Other funding programmes and scholarships remain unaffected. More information on the HSBA scholarship here.
