We want our MBA to be affordable so that current and future business leaders from around the world can afford it without going into debt.
As an institution focused only on an online MBA, we don’t have expensive campuses and buildings to maintain, and we pass the cost savings on to our students.
Most MBA Programs make you hunt from one page to the next to calculate what the program will really cost. And most universities charge up to $1,000 per year in extra fees that don't show up until you get your bill.
We've worked hard to make our pricing simple and easy to find.
You won't find any hidden "technology" or "wellness" fees here.
We tell you what everything will cost and when payment will be needed.
The tuition for the GEN 301 - "Overview of Entrepreneurship and Small Business" course is $400.
The books for this course cost $40 if purchased as Kindle books on Amazon.
The course is online, so there is no cost for travel.
The total MBA tuition is $9,000.
There are no additional fees or surcharges.
The estimated cost of all the MBA books is between $600 and $900, depending on whether books are purchased digitally or in paperback/hardback formats.
All books are available on Amazon in both digital and paperback/hardback formats.
There are no travel costs, as this MBA is conducted entirely online.
Online Course Refunds
A full refund will be granted for any course withdrawal that takes place before the end of the first week of an online course. After the first week of an online course, an 80% refund will be granted. After the second week, a 60% refund will be granted. After the third week, a 40% refund will be granted. After the fourth week, a 20% refund will be granted. There is no refund for a course withdrawal that takes place after the fifth week of an online course.
All tuition payments are made through the GLU Student Portal.
You can pay by credit card, debit card, or PayPal account.
The tuition payments for all courses must be received at least one week before the start of the course.

We don't currently offer financial aid or scholarships, because they create additional costs that would force us to increase our tuition.
In order to offer financial aid, we would have to have a department that specializes in tracking and complying with laws, releasing funds to students, and managing reporting.
In order to offer scholarships, we would have to have a fundraising department, with programs for soliciting donors, reviewing and approving applicants, releasing funds to students, and reporting to donors.
We've chosen to keep our expenses low and focus our efforts on creating the most affordable MBA program possible - one that minimizes overhead while maximizing value.
We offer a 30% tuition discount to immediate family members and a 20% tuition discount to extended family members, up to the level of the first family member’s enrollment at Global Leadership University.
Here’s how we define “family members:”
We consider immediate family members (30% discount) to include parents, siblings, children, and spouses.
We consider extended family members (20% discount) to include anyone related to you, including by marriage. This includes your cousins, aunts and uncles, and nieces and nephews. It also includes your spouse’s parents, siblings, children, cousins, aunts and uncles, and nieces and nephews.
Here’s how you qualify:
If the first family member is taking or has taken our Overview Course, then immediate family members will receive a 30% discount on the Overview Course, and extended family members will receive a 20% discount on the Overview Course.
If the first family member is taking or has taken our MBA Program, then immediate family members will receive a 30% discount on the MBA Program, and extended family members will receive a 20% discount on the MBA Program.
One example of this discount policy is that husbands and wives can take the Overview Course at the same time or later, and one of them will receive the 30% discount. They can also take the MBA Program at the same time or later, and one of them will receive the 30% discount.

Here are some entrepreneurial ideas for self-financing your MBA:
Ask your employer to contribute to your MBA.
Ask selected family and friends to contribute toward your MBA. This “family scholarship plan” is practiced in many countries around the world, especially in family-oriented cultures where the whole family network rejoices and benefits when one family member benefits. If this is not customary in your family, you might try this as your first multicultural learning experiment!
