Is this still an option nowadays (aside from working for govt) that in private business a company will help pay for some/all of an MS degree?

What is the likelihood of a company paying for a fresh grad to get an MS degree w them helping to pay for it?

Companies do pay for continuing education expenses if thats what you are asking for. Research into the HR policies of the organization you want to work for, best is to talk to some existing folks over there.

And in all likelihood you would need to put in couple of years in a company that does sponsor your education. That is part of the contract and is the case usually.
