Brooklyn, N.Y. – LIU Brooklyn is one of the nation’s “Best for Vets: Business Schools,” according to an inaugural survey conducted by Military Times magazine, published by Gannett Government Media.
LIU Brooklyn’s School of Business, Public Administration and Information Sciences ranked 43rd on the “Military Times” list, thanks to its widespread efforts to accommodate vets and active-duty service members by offering them scheduling flexibility, financial assistance and on-campus support services.
Recognizing the tremendous contributions of the members of the U.S. Armed Forces, LIU Brooklyn helps military students prepare for the next phase of their lives with one-on-one academic advisement and career counseling that guides them on the path to personal and professional success. It helps its students “Find out how good you really are.”
The college participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which lets veterans attend private colleges and universities and still receive financial assistance. The campus offers partial scholarships to military students and veterans that, when combined with the benefits received through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, can cover up to 100% of tuition and fees. Additionally, the college helps military students who are called to active duty make a seamless transition back to the classroom when they return to the campus.
This is not the first time LIU Brooklyn has been recognized for its high level of support for veterans. It was listed as a "Military Friendly School" in G.I. Jobs, a veteran-owned publication that serves former service members.
The Military Times rankings were based on response to a detailed, 60-question survey that asked about academic policies, financial aid and academic and career support. LIU Brooklyn’s sister campus, LIU Post, rated 28th on the Military Times list.
“Despite this being the survey’s first year, the participation rate was high,” said George Altman, education and employment writer for the publication. ”So making the list is a notable achievement.”
LIU Brooklyn’s business school offers a comprehensive 36-to-60 credit M.B.A. program. Combining the highest levels of academic rigor and real-world relevance, the M.B.A. offers concentrations in finance, human resources management, international business, management, management information systems or marketing.
Students study closely with faculty members, who are experts in their fields and who bring real-world experience into the classroom. Students can also learn at their own pace with the convenience of evening and weekend course schedules.
