An MBA for Veterans
Through scholarship, support, and community, Vanderbilt Business equips military members for a successful transition into civilian life.
Once your eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program has been confirmed, if your tuition charges exceed the amount of the national cap, the Yellow Ribbon Program provides additional funding up to the maximum approved by the VA based on unmet need. At the present time, Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management will award up to 50% of the unmet need in Yellow Ribbon funds, to be matched by the Veterans Administration. For additional information regarding veterans’ educational benefits at Vanderbilt University, please contact Vanderbilt’s VA school certifying officials at VASCO@vanderbilt.edu.
Details on Vanderbilt University's Yellow Ribbon Program benefits and military benefits are available through the Office of the University Registrar. A full description of the Yellow Ribbon program can be found on the Veterans Benefits Administration website.

Serving in the armed forces is excellent preparation for earning an advanced degree — whether you plan to stay in the military and rise in the ranks or pursue opportunities in the private sector
