STEM designation 

The Evening MBA program meets the federal definition of a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) program as it emphasizes technical skills combined with options for scientific coursework.

Benefits for international students

International Evening MBA students can apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) that allows them to work for 12 months in the United States after completing the degree program. The STEM designation of the Evening MBA program makes students eligible for an additional 24-month OPT extension. With up to 36 months more time to work and network in the U.S., international students can build a valuable set of professional skills and contacts that can help them with their career endeavors. 

Additionally, the Evening MBA program offers students the chance to participate in Curricular Practical Training. CPT connects students with off-campus job, training and internship opportunities. These off-campus opportunities align with the student’s course requirements and help them complete their degree.

How We Calculate Tuition and Fees

The College of Business follows the University's graduate tuition guide and additionally charges graduate differential tuition. Graduate differential tuition helps support your student experience by enhancing classroom technology through innovation, hiring highly qualified faculty, and providing advising support, scholarships, highly equipped computer labs, and comprehensive career services.

Charges will vary, depending on the student’s actual registration, residency, and course of study. Additional University fees also may apply. Try out the University tuition and fees calculator to better understand how tuition and fees can change.

CSU reserves the right to change tuition rates without notice. Tuition rates – based on academic years – are subject to increase on an annual basis and subject to Board of Governor approval. All prices refer to U.S. currency.

All full fee-paying resident‐instruction graduate students automatically will be enrolled in and billed for CSU student health insurance. Premium information and instructions on applying for a waiver to opt out of the insurance are available for domestic students  and international students
