Financial Aid

The Parker MBA is very reasonably priced; still, it’s an investment. The good news is that it’s an investment in yourself and your future. If you will need financial aid to make it happen, we encourage you to contact Georgia Southern’s financial aid office. Their mission is to remove financial barriers to student enrollment and retention: “We seek to assure that any qualified student, who desires to pursue and complete an education at this university, can obtain appropriate resources to do so.” We recommend that you contact their office and schedule an appointment with a financial aid counselor.

If you are eligible for U.S. military educational benefits, we recommend that you contact the Georgia Southern University Military Resource Center. If you are a University System of Georgia employee, you may be eligible for tuition assistance. Please contact the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) in Human Resources. If you are an employee, check with your employer’s human resources department; many companies have tuition reimbursement programs for certain educational programs. Finally, here are some websites that provide information about various loan programs:

Taking on debt is a serious matter. Fortunately, a Parker MBA is one of the most affordable programs available for working professionals. Warren Buffett, the American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist, reminds us that price is what you pay; value is what you get. A Parker MBA has real value. The good news is that you can recover the cost of your degree in less time than you think. If you are still on the fence, consider this wise counsel from Benjamin Franklin and former Harvard University president, Derek Bok: “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest” (Benjamin Franklin) and “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance” (Derek Bok).
