Take civilian life by storm. Vanderbilt Business is proud to offer military-friendly, top-ranked business programs in an environment especially suited to military candidates.
If you are directly out of college, our Master of Accountancy, Master of Marketing and Master of Science in Finance programs allow you to jump-start a career in accounting, marketing, or finance. If you have a few years of work experience and want to catapult your career or change your path, our full-time MBA may be for you. For working professionals and executives, we offer an Executive MBA and a Master of Management in Health Care to help you advance your career without leaving the workforce.
We are committed to helping you transition to business school and have dedicated resources available only to military candidates. Our admissions process includes waiving the application fee for military candidates and working around your schedule and needs to make the admissions process as easy as possible. You will also have a dedicated financial aid officer who is familiar with your benefit opportunities to assist you with the transition to business school.
Through scholarship, support, and community, Vanderbilt Business equips military members for a successful transition into civilian life.
Business school is probably the single most significant investment you will make in your personal and professional development. We are committed to helping students afford our programs. See your program of interest for more details on specific scholarship options.
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.
