We're named a 'Best for Vets Business School'

It's been exciting and rewarding to see how the industry continues to recognize Post University's approach to education and meeting students' needs. Our latest award comes from Military Times, which has named The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business on its first-ever "Best for Vets: Business Schools 2013" list. We're ranked #11.

This honor is a testament to our business school's ongoing commitment to the principles of its namesake, Malcolm Baldrige -- excellence, innovation, and leadership. It's a testament to the University's dedication to helping military students achieve their educational and career goals since our Military Program's inception in 1976.

Most of all, it's a testament to the approach we've taken with all of our students, not just those in our business school or our Military Program -- one focused on providing high-quality higher education programs and services, founded on those same Malcolm Baldrige principles and designed to fit unique individual needs.

We're especially proud that the Military Times editors rated our veteran staff with four out of four stars for their dedication to veterans' issues. It's no coincidence that our Military Program was developed and continues to be run by former military members. We know how important it is to continuously refine our program around firsthand knowledge of others who've served our country.

That's why we offer students the option of completing their degrees online, on campus, or in a hybrid format, depending on what best fits their schedules and needs.

Here's a glimpse at the role that Post University is playing in many veterans' and other military members' lives today:
  • 3,950 military students (active duty, reserve, and military dependents) are enrolled in Post University's Online Education Institute
  • 69 veterans were enrolled in The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business in fall 2012
  • 2,700 active duty military personal are enrolled in The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business
  • 312 of Post's business students have prior military experience
  • 15 guard and reserve members attend our main campus
When it comes to serving these students and helping them reach their educational goals, the privilege is truly ours.

Thanks to Military Times for recognizing Post University, and for acknowledging the need to distinguish business schools that are setting a high standard for serving military personnel.
