There is a €50 application processing fee, which will be deducted from the first tuition installment. Please see the application processing fee terms and conditions here. Each module has one book as a mandatory reading that needs to be purchased by the student from the respective publisher. This cost of approximately €400 is not included in the tuition fee. A flight ticket to Belgium (or any other possible residency destination) and transport from the airport to the place of residency are also not included in the tuition fee.

Alfred Ford School of Management MBA program can be finished in 24 months but the program can be extended to a maximum of 5 years. No additional fees are charged for the extended mode of study since we designed the program in a modular way, one module to be studied at a time, and the student’s convenience.

No, Alfred Ford School of Management awards the same MBA degree as any other onsite program. The only difference is the mode of delivery.


UKmapAs IPE is a French Government approved institution that provides us accreditation, our diploma is officially recognised. Based on it, our students are applying for further studies in their countries but, ultimately, it is the relevant organisation who is making a decision.

If you have plans to apply for further education (like Ph.D.) we recommend that you check with the desired institution whether the curriculum of your MBA studies (Alfred Ford’s or with any other MBA program) meets their specific requirements.

The first group of students was admitted in April 2017. There are six intakes per year as our admission process is based on rolling admission – you can start your studies with any of the modules!





For each module, there is one book that needs to be purchased by the student from the respective publishers. All other learning materials are available online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.





The language of instruction is English. At the moment we don’t plan to introduce other languages.




Each week there is a short weekly assignment and quiz to test your knowledge of key concepts. There are also 2 case studies, one in the middle of the module and the other one at the end of the module.




We have pre-recorded all the lectures to avoid the practical shortcomings of synchronous delivery. In that way, we can deliver lectures in any time zone.

At Alfred Ford, we accept applications year-round – the admission process is based on rolling admission, 6 times a year, so you can start with any upcoming module. For starting dates of modules please follow this link.
