MBA programs in countries like the US, Canada, Australia and the UK are very expensive and not many students will be able to pay those exorbitant fees. However, I have decided to search for countries in Europe that offer MBA programs of charge. These countries are Germany and Finland. In Germany, students will need to pay a semester/yearly fee contribution of €150 to €500 while in Finland, students are exempted from paying fees. Many might not believe this, but it’s just the truth. The fact is that, the governments of these two countries fund education heavily such that students are allowed to .
Please note that you will need to budget for your living expense which is estimated at €600 for Germany and €550 for Finland. This amount will cover the cost of accommodation, food, books, travels etc for one month.
