Rutgers University is No. 4 in Military Times Best Colleges 2018 ranking
Rutgers landed in the No. 4 spot in the nation in the Best Colleges 2018 ranking by the Military Times.
Rutgers University followed top-ranked D’Youville College in Buffalo, N.Y., the University of South Florida in Tampa (No. 2) and Georgia’s Armstrong State University, which ranked No. 3. Six hundred U.S. schools participated and the Military Times named 218 of them in its 2018 ranking.
Rutgers was ranked ahead of such schools as Syracuse University, the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and Quinnipiac University.
The Military Times used data from the federal Education, Defense and Veterans Affairs departments to see how the schools stacked up in five areas: university culture, academic quality and outcomes, student support, academic policies, cost and financial aid.
Colleges and universities were required to complete a comprehensive survey to be considered in the ranking.
While Rutgers University was included in the most recent Best Colleges ranking, many veterans and active service people attend programs at Rutgers Business School, including Rutgers Business School Executive Education’s Mini-MBA: Business Management for Military and Veterans.
“This certificate program is unique in that it is taught by veterans who have gone on to business success,” said Margaret O’Donnell, manager of Military and Veteran Engagement Programs at Rutgers Business School. “It also culminates with four months of mentorship to virtually ensure success.”
In 2016, Rutgers Business School was ranked No. 3 in the “Best for Vets” graduate business program listing compiled by the Military Times.
“Rutgers Business School attracts some of the best and brightest veterans, service members, and dependents to our Executive MBA, MBA, specialty masters, and undergraduate programs,” O’Donnell said. “Their training and experience in the military serve them well in leadership roles whether in business careers or while remaining in service.”
