Most MAIB students will pay for the program with personal funds or with assistance from Federal (U.S. students only) or private loans. A limited number of partial merit scholarships are available.
All costs are estimated for the entire program, not a per month basis, based on Fall 2011. Please note that tuition fee estimations are subject to change between academic years, and usually increase by 10% annually. To find more information on tuition and annual expense estimations, please visit Admissions' Paying for College page.

Tuition frequently increases just before each fall term; please plan on a 6-12% increase just to be sure you have budgeted enough.
Tuition is due per semester (2 modules), 2 weeks after the start of classes, and is based on the number of credit hours for which you are registered in that semester.
Study Abroad Finances
Students participating in exchange programs pay UF tuition, and all credits earned apply to the MAIB degree. Cost of living estimations for each exchange program are listed on each of our partner school description websites, located on the Foreign Study Programs page.
When investigating study abroad, remember to include cost of meals, housing, transportation, and any additional sight-seeing trips you may want to take.
Each year, the MAIB program is fortunate to have a small amount of money available for scholarships. The funds are used to help students pay for the study tour and costs associated with study abroad. The standard award is $2000, with a few outstanding students receiving an award of $4000. We are usually able to award scholarships to 8-10 of our MAIB students. There is no additional application process as qualified students are targeted in the admission process or soon after beginning the program.
Unfortunately, we are not able to award scholarships to non-U.S. Citizens or residents. Students must seek their own sources of funding.
We do not use Master's level students to teach in our College, therefore we do not offer teaching assistantships or fellowships. However, to reward one or two truly outstanding applicants who are not Florida Residents, we offer a work assistantship. This pays students a stipend per semester and enables them to qualify for the FL-Resident tuition rate. Again, these students are identified in the admission process and no additional application materials are required.
