Financing an Investment in Yourself

A Berkeley MFE degree is an investment in yourself. We know that financing any major investment can be challenging, and we are committed to helping you explore all the financing options available, including scholarships and loans. We can help you build a financial bridge between your MFE tuition costs and your career goals.

At first, I had qualms about the cost versus the likely outcome my MFE degree would produce in terms of intern and job placement. When the program office laid out the potential return on my investment—which is already coming true in terms of salary and job satisfaction—the decision was obvious.”
