The College of Business and Technology requests approval to increase MBA and MAcc tuition effective Summer 2022.
Effective Summer 2022, the MBA tuition will change from $17,850 ($475 per credit hour for 34 hour program + $50 per credit hour distance learning fee) to $19,550 ($525 per credit hour for 34 hour program + $50 per credit hour distance learning fee). The overwhelming majority of MBA students are enrolled online. The MBA program has not had a tuition increase in 3 years.
Effective Summer 2022, the MAcc tuition will change from $15,750 ($475 per credit hour for 30 hour program + $50 per credit hour distance learning fee) to $17,250 ($525 per credit hour for 30 hour program + $50 per credit hour distance learning fee). This will be the first tuition increase for the MAcc program which was started in Fall 2018.
As shown in the attached "Comparison of MBA Program Tuition for the Mid-South Region_2021" table, UNA is competitively priced in the market for MBA programs. Data suggests that we will be able to sustain market share after this tuition increase.
The COBT Recruiting Team and Advisors will work to ensure a smooth transition for prospective and current students with this tuition change.
