More Than a Credential

BW MBA students are decidedly more marketable, developing knowledge and skills they can use for a lifetime. BW graduates are in leadership positions throughout Northeast Ohio and around the world, and they point to their BW education as a key component of their ongoing success.

Graduate PLUS Loans

Graduate PLUS loans are available to help graduate students finance any remaining educational costs, including program costs and estimated living expenses, not covered by other forms of aid.

Billing and Payment Plans

Initial bills for each new semester will be mailed to the student in April, July and December. The University has a monthly payment plan available to students, which may be utilized for the entire cost or any tuition not met by loan or other resources. Students can view payment plan options, register for a payment plan, and make payments through the BW Payment Portal.
