MIT releases updated tuition and fees in the spring/summer preceding the start of the academic year. The official expense estimate for the 2020-21 academic year will be published in June 2020.

Pro-Tip: Do ALL the Math!

An MIT master's in SCM costs considerably less than a traditional 2-year MBA from an elite university, with very comparable career and salary outcomes for many students. And you're back to work – and regular paychecks – after just 10 months on campus (5 months in the Blended cohort!).

We also offer significant fellowship funding to help students pay for their master's degrees; 75% of the class of 2020 received SCM fellowships, with a total of $594k awarded. On top that, students received another $500k+ in MIT-wide fellowship awards.

There is no additional cost for taking electives beyond the requirements, subject to advisor approval.

Living expenses vary, depending on preferences and whether students live alone, with roommates, or have a family. Currently, a budget of $2,850 per month is recommended for single students on campus – $14,675 for the five month duration of the program.
