The Best for Vets list, developed by Military Times and available at www.militarytimes.com/bestforvets-bizschools2014, includes 64 schools nationwide deemed to have a culture and curriculum that caters to military veterans.
YSU ranks 40th. Ohio State (2) and Bowling Green (48) are the only other Ohio schools on the list.
“The Best for Vets: Business Schools is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE magazine.
The rankings are published in the March issue of Military Times EDGE.
YSU has been named a Military Friendly School for five consecutive years by G.I. Jobs magazine. YSU established the Office of Veteran Affairs in 2009 to assist YSU students who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces in attaining their educational goals. A new $1.25 million YSU Veterans Resource Center is under construction along Wick Avenue on campus. The 6,000-square-foot, two-story center will help improve and expand services to military veterans and service members transitioning to student life at YSU.
