Carlson MBA Programs Named 3rd Best Military Friendly Graduate Program in Nation
Military Friendly has ranked the Carlson School MBA Programs as third best in the nation in the category of graduate schools. Military Friendly is a division of Victory Media, which for more than a decade has surveyed thousands of institutions and assembled lists that capture best practices in recruitment and retention of military employees, students, and franchisees. A full list of ranked schools can be found on its website.To be considered for the Military Friendly list, a school’s military recruiting program is measured in three primary areas in how well it:
- Engages the prospective military student or employee in a recruiting environment
- Educates the military student or employee once he or she is part of the company or school
- Employs the military student or employee in meaningful employment
Several years ago, the Carlson School established the Military Veterans Initiative, a program to attract more veterans into the MBA Programs. Since its founding, the initiative has helped the Full-Time MBA Program grow from two military veterans in the class of 2013 to 19 in the class of 2018.
