Veteran Benefits

As part of the public University of California system, Berkeley Haas is one of the few top business schools that lets veteran executive MBA students take the greatest advantage of Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.

Depending on qualifying length of service, veterans can obtain funding for up to 100% of resident assessed tuition & fees, a monthly housing allowance, and an annual book stipend.

Financing for Veteran Executive MBA Students

The Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) provides benefits to veterans who served in active duty for the United States since September 11, 2001. Veterans receive a percentage of resident tuition and fees based on length of qualifying service and must have served at least 36 months to receive 100% of the benefit. A housing allowance and book allowance is also provided based on length of service.

If you qualify for 100% of the benefit, the entire cost of fees for the MBA for Executives program will be covered by the VA. Please contact us if you are a veteran so that we can help with any benefit processing.

Additionally, Berkeley Haas is proud to offer U.S. military service members (active duty and veterans) an application fee waiver:

  • After you have started your online application, but before submitting it, please email the admissions office at mbaforexecs@haas.berkeley.edu if you are interested in submitting the Application Fee Waiver Request form.
  • Please do not submit your application until you receive a response to your request.

Veteran executive MBA students at Berkeley Haas may also take advantage of the VA's Yellow Ribbon Program, which offers a matching fund option for U.S. military veterans who served at least 36 months, and qualify for 100% of the Post- 9/11 GI Bill benefit. The program provides funding for any gap in tuition and fees not already covered by the VA or other fee-specific award.
