Be sure that you understand everything about the repayment terms required by your sponsor, especially what the options are for repayment if you choose not to return to the sponsor after graduation.

Student loans are not available to refinance or buy-out sponsorships.

Other important points to consider:

  • Will the sponsor limit where you can work in the summer between years one and two?
  • Post graduation, will you return to the sponsor at your pre-MBA level and salary, or at a higher level and salary?
  • How many years of work post-MBA are required for your sponsor to forgive the cost of the sponsorship or sponsored loan?

If you are in doubt about accepting a sponsorship, please include all details of the sponsorship with your financial aid application and request that your aid awards be calculated with and without sponsorship so that you can make an informed decision.
