Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships are a unique characteristic of the Walton MBA. Graduate assistantships may be for two years or less. During the period a student holds a graduate assistantship he/she receives a complete tuition waiver and a stipend. In return the student works as an assistant for 20 hours a week. Several Graduate Assistantships are offered.

You do not have to complete any applications for assistantships. All admitted students are automatically considered for assistantships after they are admitted to the program. Note that international applicants are also eligible to receive graduate assistantships.
