Master of Business Administration


Typical questions asked about this program include:

What is the length of the program?

How long it takes to earn your MBA degree depends on how quickly you choose to complete the required 30 credits of coursework; the MBA program at UAF can be completed at your own pace in as little as one year. A full load of classes consists of 9 credits per semester or 18 credits per year. Most MBA students finish the program in under three years.

What is the cost of the program?

Based on the 2021-2022 school year, the estimated cost of tuition (including general fees) to complete the MBA program ranges from $20,772 to $23,735 for all online students (online students automatically receive in-state tuition). Costs will vary depending on whether students choose 400-level or 600-level courses for their two electives.

Additional costs could include pre-MBA modules, entrance exams, books and application fees.

Is financial aid available?

CBSM’s MBA program offers some financial aid opportunities to its students in the form of scholarships and paid teaching assistant (TA) positions. There are usually four available TA positions that span the traditional academic year (fall and spring semesters). TA benefits include an annual stipend, 9-credit tuition waiver, health insurance and teaching experience. Teaching assistantships will be competitive among admitted students. Contact Angel Buchanan, Graduate Advisor, for more information.


It is exciting to advance my education and the opportunities that await upon graduation from UAF. The University of Alaska Fairbanks online MBA program offers everything I had been searching for and more, in the form of quality instruction and flexible online offerings to fit even the busiest schedule.
