UTA Executive MBA Return on Investment (ROI)

Our 15-month program is six months shorter than the average EMBA, and our turnkey UTA EMBA tuition of $74,500 is $20,000-$50,000 less than comparable EMBA programs.


It's more than the best value and best ROI — think of it as an instant $20,000 salary increase. Another benefit is you’ll be half a year ahead of the game when you graduate from the UTA EMBA program.

Yet we don’t sacrifice quality just to save you time and money. By condensing our program into 14 modules, we have created a hyper-focused curriculum. You come away with everything you need to further your career — and some extra change in your pocket as well.

So is an executive MBA worth it? Yes, if it’s a UTA EMBA. In our 2015 UTA EMBA survey, the advantages speak for themselves in terms of EMBA return on investment:

  • In the Class of 2014 alone, UTA EMBA students had an average 24.6% salary increase, compared with 16.8% nationwide and realized their ROI in only 2.46 years compared to 2.97 years nationwide.
  • 85% of graduates stated effectiveness in their current position increased because of their EMBA.
  • 75% of graduates also felt their ability to be promoted was increased because of their EMBA.
  • 95% or graduates stated the program met or exceeded expectations.
