The USC Marshall School of Business has been ranked as one of the top 10 best business schools for veterans, according to the Military Times.
In calculating the rankings (USC Marshall placed No. 9), the publication looked at a variety of criteria, including enrollment, number of veterans on staff and faculty, and special funding programs for veterans. It also evaluated student support, academic outcomes and quality and university culture. This is the third year the publication has published its rankings.
In 2013, USC Marshall launched its one-year Master of Business for Veterans program, based on feedback from military veterans who had enrolled in the school’s Executive MBA programs in San Diego.
Serving our student veteran population is a priority at Marshall.

“Serving our student veteran population is a priority at Marshall,” said Dean James G. Ellis. “We are proud of the Master of Business for Veterans program and its success in helping veterans leverage their leadership skills to excel in the business world.”
The MBV was designed to maximize the culture of discipline and teamwork from which veterans emerge, as well as their significant leadership experience. To help these students transition successfully into a business environment, a carefully sequenced curriculum was devised to leverage those skills in courses that include finance, management, strategies, marketing and communication.
“We are proud of this recognition,” said MBV program director and retired Lt. Col. James Bogle. “It has been a great honor to serve these extraordinary students and help them transition successfully to careers in business.”
