Military Times ranks Rutgers one of best business schools for vets
Rutgers Business School is ranked No. 3 in the 2016 listing of "Best for Vets" graduate business programs compiled by the Military Times.
Rutgers University, which has an Office of Veteran and Military Programs and Services, also was high in the rankings of best colleges for vets, landing at No. 5 in the 2016 listing.
The ranking reflects an evaluation of the culture, student support, academic policies, financial aid and academic outcomes for veterans at Rutgers Business School.
Last year, Rutgers Business School Executive Education launched a Mini-MBA: Business Management for Military and Veterans. The Mini-MBA program is open to military personnel transitioning into the business world as well as civilian employers who are interested in recruiting veterans.
Chris Wilson, a U.S. Marine veteran, completed a Rutgers Executive MBA in 2015.
"We are so proud of this ranking, said Joseph Schaffer, associate dean for executive education and a professor of professional practice. "We know that our Mini-MBA program distinguishes us from other business schools that serve our military and veterans in other ways."
The latest ranking of 77 business schools was published by the Military Times in February.
Military Times will consider only institutions that complete its detailed college survey and offer graduate business degrees for its ranking. Data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments as well as the Education Department are also considered.
