Tuition and Fees – Master of Management Studies | Duke Kunshan University

Tuition and Fees

We are committed to making the Master of Management Studies: Duke Kunshan University program accessible to all qualified and committed candidates. Here, you will find basic information about the program’s tuition and additional fees.

The “cost of attendance” (COA) is used to calculate your maximum financial aid eligibility. Certain expenses or situations—such as having a spouse, child(ren), computer expenses—may allow you to increase this total COA budget. Many students are able to work out financing arrangements up to the full cost of attendance, but each individual student must apply for financial aid to determine his or her own eligibility.
