Graduate School of Management Recognized as 'Military Friendly' by Victory Media
UD's Graduate School of Management (GSM) has once again been named to Victory Media's
coveted "Military Friendly Schools" list. Victory Media is the premier media entity
for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, and its 2013 Military Friendly
Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools
that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans and
spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. UD has been named to this
list for the past three years.
More than 1,700 higher education institutions and trade schools are a part of this
year's list and exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students
with military experience. The GSM has furthered its recognition in the Military Friendly
Schools list this year by increasing military student benefits and aid programs. Additionally,
military students are accommodated in various other ways, including enrollment flexibility,
online classes and tuition assistance.
"The College of Business is pleased to be recognized as a 'Military Friendly' school,"
said Robert Scherer, College of Business dean. "Our online courses are well-suited
for students who are active in the military or transitioning to civilian careers.
In addition, several members of our faculty and staff have served in the military,
so we understand firsthand the unique needs of our military students."
The university's veteran specific website can be found at udallas.edu/offices/veterans.
Now in its fourth year, the list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through
extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools
nationwide. A full story and detailed list of the 2013 list will be highlighted in
the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and
digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in
early October. The complete list can be found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/mfslist.aspx.
