Tufts Gordon Institute is committed to helping answer your tuition and financing questions. We encourage you check out the scholarships and financial aid page for more information on our merit-based scholarships, financial aid and student loans. 

M.S. in Engineering Management (MSEM)

Tuition (2018-19): $54,000

The tuition for our Two-Year and Three-Year M.S. in Engineering Management programs includes all fees and books. As an added convenience, Tufts Gordon Institute provides lunch or dinner to students on the days they attend classes. (Note: for students enrolled in our Three-Year program, any books required for the two elective courses are not included in the tuition.) Parking at Tufts Gordon Institute is free and readily available. Our students appreciate the fact that there are no hidden costs. We strive to keep our tuition at a reasonable cost – evidenced in the fact that it is significantly less than the cost to earn an MBA.

Two-Year MSEM: Tuition is billed in four equal installments at the beginning of each semester which spans three calendar years. View additional details on the Two-Year MSEM tuition schedule.

Three-Year MSEM: Tuition payments are spread across 6 semesters which spans four calendar years. View additional details on the Three-Year MSEM tuition schedule.

Students receiving tuition reimbursement from their employer may defer their tuition payment for up to 30 days after they receive their grades for a given semester. Read additional details on corporate reimbursement.

Professional Education Courses

Tuition (2018-19): $5,153 (3 credits); $3,436 (2 credits)

Registration and Payment

Tuition payment entitles students to many campus privileges including the use of the Tufts libraries, athletic facilities, and computer labs. A valid student ID is all a student needs to take full advantage of the Tufts community benefits. Purchase of books and other required course materials are the responsibility of the student.

Up to 6 credits earned as a professional education student can be applied towards the modules required to earn the M.S. in Engineering Management degree. The total tuition paid for professional education courses will be deducted from the MSEM tuition rate at the time of enrollment. For further information or questions on how the tuition paid for professional education courses reduces the MSEM program tuition, please contact a member of our admissions team at: tgi@tufts.edu.

Tufts Gordon Institute’s program administrator will provide registration information after a student has applied and received approval to enroll in Professional Education courses. Payment is due with course registration. You can pay by VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or check (payable to Trustees of Tufts College).
