Programme fee

The programme fee is 465 000 SEK, excluding VAT. This fee includes lectures, supervision and all mandatory study literature. It also includes refreshments and lunches. Travel and accommodation costs where applicable are not included in the programme fee. This applies to the recurring on campus sessions, the three-day, off-campus leadership workshop and the two separate one-week residencies in China and India.

Our participants need to be fully sponsored by their employers. A non-refundable tuition reservation fee (10%) is required upon acceptance to the programme. The remaining tuition will be paid in two equal instalments at the start of the programme and the start of the second term.




Are you an entrepreneur with your own company already up and running? Then you can apply for a scholarship from the Knut & Ragnvi Jacobsson family foundation to cover your costs while on the Executive MBA programme.

The foundation was set up in 2012 to fund a wide range of competence development efforts for successful entrepreneurs and researchers. More information (in Swedish only) about how to apply  is found at the web site of the foundation.
