Tuition and Financial Aid

Investing In Your Career Earning a Graduate Certificate in International Business is a powerful way to sharpen your professional skills.

Tuition, Fees & Other Expenses

For information related to current tuition rates, fees and associated program expenses, please visit the Northeastern Student Financial Services page. Click the dropdown under “Graduate Programs” and you will find the rate next to “International Business.”

State law requires students in a full-time certificate program to have medical insurance. If you are not covered under a qualifying plan, you must enroll in one. For more information on Northeastern University's Student Health Plan (NUSHP), please visit the Northeastern Student Financial Services page. Click the drop down under "Student Health Plan (NUSHP)" and you will find the annual rates.

Many of our certificate students are already living in the Boston area. However, if you are relocating to the city, you will find that housing expenses can vary widely across the Boston area. In general, we advise incoming students to estimate approximately $1,800 per month for room and board.


Graduate certificate programs do not qualify for federal financial aid or merit-based scholarships. Northeastern University offers two scholarship options for Northeastern alumni and family to graduate certificate students.

Double Husky Scholarship

Are you a Northeastern graduate who is considering going back to school to earn your graduate certificate? The Double Husky Scholarship helps Husky alumni finance their graduate education by providing a tuition discount of 25 percent for the Graduate Certificate in International Business.

Lifetime Learning Benefit

Are you a parent or sibling of a current Northeastern undergraduate student? Northeastern offers a first-of-its-kind Lifetime Learning Benefit. The Graduate Certificate in International Business program qualifies and 25-percent discounts are available. To be eligible, you will need to provide the Northeastern University ID number of your son, daughter, or sibling (who must be currently enrolled at Northeastern as a full-time undergraduate day student) at the time of your application.
