Executive Retreat Fee

There are two required Executive Retreats. The first is facilitated face-to-face, the second is virtual/online. The MBA in Healthcare Leadership program charges a $650 fee for attendance of the face-to-face retreat. If you are attending a retreat to participate in two retreat-based courses at the same time, you need pay the $650 fee only once. In addition, you are not expected to pay the $650 fee if you are attending a retreat just to participate in an exam or workshop and there is no fee for attendance of the second (virtual) retreat.

Funds generated by this fee are used to offset the college's costs in offering retreat-based courses that are not supported by New York state appropriations or tuition. The retreat fee is attached to the fees charged for retreat-based courses.
