Georgia Southern Named a Best Business School for Veterans

The Georgia Southern University College of Business Administration (COBA) has been honored by Military Times as being 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, Ph.D., 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 who 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.”
