Tuition and Scholarships

Sabanci University, which is a non-profit, foundation university, provides merit-based scholarships to MBA students including international applicants.  Number of students receiving scholarships may change depending on the individual amounts. All scholarship requests should be submitted with the application documents during online application. Scholarship decisions are made after the documents in the application package are reviewed and the interview of the candidate is completed.  Although GMAT or GRE score is one of the primary criteria used in scholarship decisions, it is by no means the only criterion. For instance, a candidate who has very high GMAT or GRE score may not be accepted to the program if at the end of the interview the committee decides that he lacks a certain level of communication skills.  On the other hand, a candidate with an average GMAT or GRE score may be offered scholarship if s/he has other strong skills. Candidates are strongly encouraged to study for the GMAT or GRE examinations, since getting used to the types of questions is essential for getting high scores (just like in all standardized tests).

Sabancı University has dedicated an annual MBA scholarship in honor of Mrs. Aysegul Arsoy due to her contributions during the founding of the University. Mrs. Aysegul Arsoy was a long time proponent of the University, both during its initiation and design process.  Aysegul Arsoy scholarship is granted annually to one of the MBA students.

This scholarship includes tuition fee exemption, monthly stipend payment between September-June, free accommodation on campus (in double room) or if the student lives off campus, a monthly transportation support for ten months and book support annually.

Each year several assistantships are available to eligible students. The recipients receive either full (100% ) or partial (2/3) tuition waiver. In return, they are required to work as assistants for professors at the School of Management. 

The weekly assistantship workload depends on the tuition waiver given to the student. A student receiving assistantship with full tuition waiver is required to work certain hours per week, mostly as a teaching assistant.

There are some scholarships available (without assistantship requirement) with partial ( 1/2 or 1/4) tuition waiver.

Axalta Coating Systems, the only leading global coatings company dedicated solely to the development, manufacture and saleof liquid and powder coatings, supports an international or local student to attend Sabancı MBA.

The scholarship covers full tuition waiver, monthly stipend and dormitory fees.

Students are interviewed by the company as well as by Sabancı School of Management Committee.
