ASU College of Business named one of the top schools for vets

Angelo State University’s College of Business has been designated as one of the nation’s 77 best business schools for veterans by the Military Times organization. This is the third straight year that ASU has made the  “Best for Vets: Business Schools 2016” rankings list.

The College of Business ranked No. 36 on the list and is one of five business schools in Texas to earn the  designation. The Military Times is made up of the Air Force Times, Army Times, Marine Corps Times, Navy Times, Military Times and Defense News newspapers and their corresponding websites.

Its “Best for Vets: Business Schools” rankings are based on an extensive survey analysis of a business school’s offerings for military veterans, factoring in academic quality, outcomes and policies, school culture, student support and cost of attendance.

In a press release, Dean of the ASU College of Business, Dr. Clifton Jones, said “We are extremely proud to receive this distinction and honor from Military Times representing our nation’s veterans. Our dedicated and caring faculty and staff are committed to ensuring that veterans – and all our students – receive the support and attention they deserve.”

In November, ASU also received its third straight Military Times “Best for Vets” designation as an overall institution when it ranked No. 42 on the list of the nation’s 140 Best Colleges for Veterans 2016. That followed a seventh straight “Military Friendly School” designation for ASU by G.I. Jobs magazine.

The University of the Incarnate Word, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University and the University of Texas at Arlington are the other Texas universities with business schools on this year’s “Best for Vets: Business Schools” list.
