Georgia Southern University’s College of Business Administration has been honored by Military Times as one of the best business schools for veterans in the United States. In the first-ever survey, COBA received the “Best for Vets: Business Schools” seal.

“The MBA program at Georgia Southern University is attracting outstanding veterans from throughout the country,” said Bill Wells, dean of the College of Business Administration. “Veterans considering an MBA have more options than ever and we are proud to be one of a select few MBA programs in Georgia to be recognized in this year’s rankings.”

COBA ranked 45th out of the roughly 100 business schools at colleges and universities that responded to the detailed, 60-question survey. Georgia Southern was singled out for its online and part-time MBA program and for having staff dedicated to veterans issues in the business school.

“The MBA program at Georgia Southern University is not only nationally respected, but offers students maximum flexibility,” explained Wells. “Today, you can choose to take your courses full-time or part-time, on campus, online or through a combination of both. It’s perfect for veterans looking to take the next step in their career or for active members of the military exploring graduate education.

“Our students who have military backgrounds enter the MBA program focused and dedicated. Their leadership experiences have prepared them well for life after the military, and we hope the MBA education they receive from Georgia Southern will make them the stand-out candidate for any job.”

The Best for Vets survey is in this month’s edition of Military Times on newsstands and online. Find the story and all the rankings for the “Best for Vets: Business Schools” list by visiting http://
