Gordon Berridge, Senior Associate Director of Graduate Admission and M.B.A. '21 was featured in a recent Yahoo! News article 15 Ways to Find Money to Pay for an MBA. View this post to see Gordon's recommendations and additional resources to help fund your graduate education.
Merit-based scholarships are a key source he recommends that applicants look out for, stating that "most schools, including Bentley, offer a number of merit MBA scholarships that don't involve a work component." Bentley offers scholarships to qualified full-time and part-time graduate students in the form of tuition reduction.
Graduate assistantships or student employment positions can also help students with tuition costs while gaining additional experience to bolster their resume: "These positions are generally offered to full-time graduate students with limited work experience and are awarded for merit."
Industry scholarships can be a valuable tool as well for funding opportunities, whether applying for an MBA or any business master's programs: "If you're interested in taxation, research what types of scholarships are available for people looking to pursue a taxation degree."
