The John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business was ranked among the top 50 of the 77 business schools listed in the 2016 “best for vets” business school rankings.


“Best for Vets: Business Schools” is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the criteria that make an institution a good fit for military veterans.


Criteria for selection is based on veteran culture and curriculum, cost in the context of military and veteran benefits, overall veteran policies, and publicly available outcome measures.


Rankings are based on a survey and include colleges, career and technical colleges, business schools, franchises, employers and law enforcement.


“It is a great honor for the Boler School of Business to receive this recognition for having academic programs and outcomes that meet the needs of veterans,” said Dean of the Boler School, Alan Miciak “John Carroll University is committed to serving our military veteran students with comprehensive programs that prepare them to succeed,” he added.


The Military Times is made up of The Army Times, The Navy Times, The Air Force Times and The Marine Corps Times.


According to the press release sent by media relations and communication Director Tonya Strong-Charles,  the editor of Best for Vets, Amanda Miller said, “Veterans have told us they were attracted to a business degree because it wouldn’t tie them down to a certain industry.” Miller continues, “The survey lets us recognize the graduate business schools with close military connections that truly take vets’ success to heart.”


Rankings are published in full in the issues of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times as well as each organization’s website.
