Troy University’s Heidelberg, Germany, campus is offering a new scholarship program to entice American students to enroll in its master’s degree program in general management.

The university is lowering the cost of its master’s of business administration courses from $25,884 to $19,500. Its executive MBA program has gone from $27,875 to $21,000, said Petra Metzger, the school’s office manager.

The special deal, called the Patriotic Scholarship, applies only to American servicemembers, their family members and Department of Defense civilians, contractors and retirees, Metzger said.

The reduced tuition includes the cost of books for the 16-month course, which is a combination lecture/distance learning curriculum, including two weekends of instruction in English per month by a Troy University professor flown in from the U.S. campus, Metzger said.
