Ashridge Business School Tuition

Fees and Funding

Fees are a key factor when deciding to undertake your degree. When comparing fees across different programmes, most importantly you should find out what the tuition fees include, how you can pay and whether there are any ‘hidden costs’. The fees for this programme include all of the following:

  • Registration
  • Tuition and assessment
  • Your Learning Zone portal
  • Use of the online Ashridge Library
  • Access to Virtual Ashridge study resources
  • Membership of the Alumni Association

You may have the option to either pay for the Ashridge Masters in Management in full at the beginning of study or in stages spreading the cost over up to two years.

Programme fees:

£15,000 + VAT (£18,000 inc VAT)

You may pay per stage if you wish which equates to three instalments across the entire programme. There is no extra charge for this.

How much will your MBA cost?

Both the Full-time MBA and the part-time Executive MBA (EMBA) cost £32,500 GBP.

Every participant funds their MBA differently. Some secure corporate sponsorship while others finance their programme with scholarships, loans or savings.

Funding option 2

Loan options for UK residents

Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans which you may consider applying for. They can be used to help pay the cost of work-related learning opportunities. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning, or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work.

The Young People’s Learning Agency pays the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards.

The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of financial support such as grants or bursaries.

It is important to bear in mind that the Professional and Career Development Loan scheme is a commercial loan product and should only be considered as an option after all other student funding options have been fully investigated.

Funding option 3

Salary Sacrifice Scheme

In some circumstances your employer may agree to allow you to pay for your studies through a ‘Salary Sacrifice’ scheme. Here you establish an agreement with your employer whereby they agree to pay your tuition fees in their entirety to the business school and then you agree to pay all or part of your fees back to your employer through a deduction from your salary before tax each month.


Salary Sacrifice can help UK employees who want to undertake a period of work-related study but where corporate sponsorship is not available to reduce the net cost of the chosen programme of study.

UK employees, investing in a personal development programme at Ashridge could make savings on Income Tax and National Insurance contributions. Organisations in the UK may also make savings by not being liable for National Insurance on the portion of the salary that is sacrificed for the training course or studies.
