Potential Tax Savings
With full corporate reimbursement declining and student loan options shrinking, exploring possible tax deductions for your Executive MBA tuition can make a significant difference.

Tax savings are dependent on your personal situation. Most importantly, students who are paying for all or part of the Executive MBA education should check with their accountant to determine whether their tuition payments qualify as a tax deduction. Your accountant can also help determine whether tuition reimbursement is considered a taxable fringe benefit.
