Christian Brothers University (CBU) was ranked among the “Best for Vets: Business Schools 2013” by the Military Times. Of the some 100 schools responding to the first-ever national survey, CBU ranked 19 out of 62 selected by the Military Times for its master’s business programs that help veterans bridge their military skills to corporate America.
The detailed 60-question survey ranked academic policies, financial aid, academic and career support, and even the average Graduate Management Admission Test scores of the participating schools. The result of the evaluation of the survey responses distinguished CBU’s Graduate Business programs as an ideal option for veterans, active-duty service members and their families.
Corporate America is constantly changing, and not everyone can swiftly transition from driving an army tank to working in an office. For many vets, pursuing a Master of Business Administration becomes the next step in their career path. “We at CBU are improving every year to provide the best transitional service for our veterans to become the next great generation,” says Anthony McClyde, Veteran Services Coordinator at CBU.
Veterans bring a strong work ethic, leadership skills and maturity to the classroom. What business programs like CBU’s give them is the unique perspective of corporate America’s culture and language of business. At CBU, veterans have the option of pursuing a MBA, Master of International Business (MIB), MBA/MIB or Master of Accountancy (MAcc). As a VA-Designated Yellow Ribbon University, CBU has many generous Yellow Ribbon Grants which are designed to provide veterans with additional funds up to 100 percent of the out-of-pocket tuition and fees for degree programs.
The Military Times, a Gannett Government Media Publication that serves as an independent source for news and information for the military community, provides service members and their families with current news and information to help nurture their careers and personal lives.
