Command Your Military Career

A Goizueta MBA helps you translate best practices from the boardroom into the military environment. Our innovative curriculum elevates the skills you've honed during your military career with a combination of intensive case study and practical application. With a Goizueta MBA, you're prepared to influence the future of your branch, as well as your team.

We're proud to have active duty alumni representing each of the military branches. We've been ranked as a GI Jobs Military Friendly Institution for three consecutive years and are part of the Military Consortium through GMAC. As part of our dedication to veteran education, we proudly offer a variety of assisted funding options.

Assisted Funding Options

Goizueta Business School will provide awards for a fixed number of MBA students in each of the School's four MBA formats through the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (aka Chapter 33), and allows voluntary partner institutions to enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration to fund tuition expenses for eligible veterans.

Goizueta Business School will provide up to $22,250 annually, matched by the Veterans Administration, for a fixed number of MBA students on a first-come, first-served basis according to the requirements of the Veterans Administration.

Goizueta Business School will provide 50 Yellow Ribbon awards per year. Our sincere hope is that we will be able to accommodate every enrolling veteran who is eligible. We still encourage veterans to apply early for the best opportunity to receive these awards.

Yellow Ribbon Program Application Process

Yellow Ribbon Program awards for the academic year are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. To be considered for a Goizueta Business School Yellow Ribbon Program award, you must submit a Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs and complete an Emory Veteran Enrollment Form.  

  • Students must first be admitted to Goizueta Business School before submitting their forms.
  • Student should then submit their Yellow Ribbon Application.
  • Multiple forms received on the same date will be prioritized by the earliest date of enrollment deposit.

Joint degree candidates must apply to each program separately for funding, as Goizueta Business School Yellow Ribbon funds are applicable only for semesters spent in the Business School.

Eligibility is to be determined by the Veteran's Administration. In the event a Yellow Ribbon applicant is found not eligible for VA funds, the available award will be given to the next eligible person on the prioritized list. Goizueta Business School's participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program is a contracted agreement with the Veterans Administration for the current academic year, and is subject to change in subsequent years. Please email us or call 404-727-6311.
