Military Information

We are honored to support the men and women who have dedicated their lives in service to this country. We want to make a Gordon graduate degree in the Financial Analysis program as affordable as possible for students. Here’s how we can help:

Active Military: As a participating institution in the minority of schools with an approved DoD MOU, we offer a way to apply for Tuition Assistance (TA) through the students’ branch to put towards their M.S. in Financial Analysis. While every branch has a different Tuition Assistance program established, we can help students find the answers they need.

Here are a few branch-specific resources for students to get started.

Veterans and their Dependents: there are two approved programs that may be of interest to students in helping bring the cost of their education down.
1) The GI Bill® provides financial support if a student has served at least 90 days (in aggregate) on or after September 11, 2001. How much an individual student is eligible for is based on their length of service. The GI Bill® assists with tuition and fees (up to $22,805 per academic year) as well as providing a housing allowance and books/supplies allowance (up to $1,000 annually).
2) The Yellow Ribbon Program provides qualifying veterans, or the qualifying dependents of veteran's tuition assistance. Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) benefits are available only if a student is eligible for the 100 percent payment tier for the GI Bill®. Gordon participates in the YRP without limitation on the number of veterans enrolled. If students are YRP-eligible, we contribute $2,500 to fund tuition and fees, and the VA matches that at $2,500. As stipulated by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program is determined on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is important to complete the application as early as possible.

Combine YRP and GI Bill® benefits together at Gordon and the majority of a student’s costs are covered. Things may vary from veteran to veteran, depending on one’s personal situation, so if students have any questions, please contact Gordon Admissions at msfa@gordon.edu.

Degree Programs

Full-time (12 Months, 36 Credits): Through just three semesters of rigorous learning (half the time of an MBA program) and experiential learning, students will find their best career path and realize success faster. A full-time student can achieve their degree 100% on-campus or online. This option normally requires 20-30 hours of academic work per week.

Part-time (24 Months, 36 credits): Designed for working professionals, the part-time track will help students advance their career in the military without difficulty. Students can cultivate their financial acumen and expand their networks at a pace that works for them. Students will discover depth and breadth on a flexible schedule to match their professional goals and personal life—from big business to entrepreneurial dreams. A part-time student can achieve their degree 100% on-campus or online. This option normally requires 12-15 hours of academic work per week.

Learning Environment

On-Campus: The on-campus program allows students to study near a financial hub and interact personally with fellow students alongside the professors. Students will study inside and outside the classroom through in-person lectures, events, and presentations. This format has multiple start dates and can be taken full-time or part-time to fit the needs of working professional students.

Online: The online format allows students to learn material from pre-recorded lectures and lessons anywhere in the world. Assignments and discussion boards are some of the ways that students can interact with peers and professors.
