Branch-Sponsored Opportunities

Goizueta Business School is proud to be a recognized institution for the specialized development of high-potential career military candidates. We collaborate with all branches of the military on an individual case basis to determine which of our MBA programs is a fit for the service member's goals. Tuition for enrolled, sponsored candidates is paid on behalf of the student by their branch. Contact MBA Admissions for details.

Executive MBA Scholarship

Current and retired U.S. military service members who do not qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program are eligible for an Executive MBA scholarship. For details and eligibility requirements, contact MBA Admissions.

Assisted Funding Options

Goizueta Business School will provide awards for a fixed number of MBA students in each of the School's five 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. The amount of the Yellow Ribbon Program award is equal to the difference between the amount received through the Post 9/11 GI Bill tuition benefit and the actual cost, up to a limit specified each year by the Goizueta Business School and matched by the VA through the Yellow Ribbon Program. For the majority of our MBA programs, this results in a full-tuition benefit.

Goizueta Business School will provide up to $20,000 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 for the scholarship. 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 an Emory Veteran Enrollment Form (provided upon request). Forms can be sent through email, mail and in-person delivery. Forms will be prioritized according to date of receipt by the guidelines below. It is the responsibility of the Yellow Ribbon Program applicant to ensure that the form was received by the MBA Admissions Office.

  • Students must first be admitted to Goizueta Business School before submitting their forms.
  • Student should then submit their forms. Email is recommended.
  • 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.
