The Providence College Part-Time MBA is both flexible and affordable. In fact, our tuition rates are lower than many other area programs. The 2022-2023 tuition cost just is $815/credit.

The Providence College MBA is about educating you. We want to keep that process as flexible and as affordable as possible.
