Military Applicants

An MBA Call to Action

The Paul Merage School of Business values the service of our men and women in uniform and the experiences they bring to our programs. The Fully Employed MBA (FEMBA) Program warmly welcomes military applicants. Our personalized, experientially-based learning offers a broad exposure to all key areas of business to build your strategic business acumen and prepare you for executive leadership roles in the public and private sectors.

As a military-friendly MBA Program, FEMBA will waive the $150 application fee for applicants who are active military, veterans or reservists in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, or Coast Guard.  To receive a fee waiver, please email Sonia Batra, listing ‘Military Application Fee Waiver’ in the subject line and your full name in the body of the message. We will then waive the fee in our online application system so that you may submit your application without payment.

More veterans are using their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to earn a graduate business degree.  Attend an event or schedule a one-on-one consultation to learn about how our MBA is the perfect complement to skills learned in the military, including logistics, leadership, language, operations, health, and engineering.

Admission Deferrals for Deployment

We provide a two-year deferment to admitted military students whose academic plans are delayed by their service branch. In the case of deployment, your tuition and fees will remain the same upon your return to the program.
