Cut the cost of advancing your career. Earning a Master of Science in Financial Analysis from Gordon College instead of a traditional MBA saves you more than $70,000 and an entire year of graduate school.
Gordon’s MSFA tuition is already less than a third of the price of a traditional MBA—and it’s almost never the amount you’ll actually write on the check. There are many substantial ways to lower your bottom line.
Graduate assistantships reduce tuition by two-thirds—about $18,000—enabling exceptional students to earn their MSFA at a fraction of the cost while undertaking substantive work assignments with the program director.
Scholarships and Loans
Contrary to what you may think, there are plenty of external scholarships for graduate students—especially those pursuing a degree like the MSFA. Scholarships reduce costs and don’t need to be repaid. Win-win. Explore scholarships specifically for business and finance students ➔
You may also qualify for loans that can bring down the up-front costs of your degree. After a year, when you’re back in the workforce, you can quickly make affordable payments. Learn more ➔
If you are a veteran or military service member, you may have earned benefits through the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and the Yellow Ribbon Program, which would lower your costs even more.
The GI Bill® provides financial support if you’ve served at least 90 days (in aggregate) on or after September 11, 2001. How much you’re eligible for is based on your 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).
In contrast, Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) benefits are available only if you are eligible for the 100% payment tier for the GI Bill®. Gordon participates in the YRP without limitation on the number of veterans enrolled. If you are YRP-eligible, we contribute $2,500 to fund tuition and fees, and the VA matches that at $2,500.
Combine YRP and GI Bill® benefits together at Gordon, and the majority of your costs are covered. Things may vary from veteran to veteran, depending on your personal situation, so if you have any questions, please contact Gordon Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bottom line
With so many opportunities to save, your bottom line ends up being a fraction of the sticker price. The average MSFA student pays only $10,000 out of pocket for the entire program.
