Common MBA financing options

  • COMPANY SPONSORSHIP AND/OR FUNDING

Depending on company policy, employers can finance all or part of MBA tuition fees. It is rare today that an employer agrees to finance an MBA in full, but it is not unheard of. More often, you can negotiate a significant contribution to your tuition fees. In addition, some companies offer corporate scholarships.

  • STUDENT LOANS

This is the most common source of financing for MBA programs. The Solvay Ponts Admissions Team has negotiated preferred rates and packages with leading European banks for all participants that meet the banks’ criteria, such as providing a loan guarantor.

  • FRENCH GOVERNMENT SCHOLARSHIPS

Available through the Campus France network or your local French Embassy, they are primarily aimed at attracting quality graduate students. Beneficiaries are selected on the basis of academic criteria.

  • FUNDING BY COUNTRY

Every country has scholarship and funding options and you should contact institutions in your country to check for available opportunities. Some online platforms help students to obtain information about different scholarships, grants, financial aid across the globe. In France, for instance, professionals can benefit from an individual right to training (DIF/CPF) and support from a joint labor/management fund (FONGECIF).

  • TAX REDUCTION

In many countries an MBA is considered a tax-deductible expense.
