Fees & Funding

The MS in Finance tuition fee is EUR12,000

The same tuition fee applies to both full-time and part-time students.

CEU's full-time/part-time business programs are generously subsidized with tuition fees set deeply below cost. Thus, CEU Financial Aid is not available on these programs, including on the MS in Finance.
