FAU Business School Recognized by Military Times

BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 13, 2015) – Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business has been named the top business school in South Florida for veterans by Military Times magazine. It is also a top 50 business school in the country for veteran education, according to the 2015 “Best for Vets” survey. The schools were evaluated in five key categories: university culture, student support, academic quality, academic policies and financial aid.

            This is the latest example of FAU’s commitment to its veterans. Military Advanced Education recently named FAU as a “Top College and University” for military and veteran education. The university has also been named a Military Friendly® School for the past five years by GI Jobs, a website designed to help veterans make the transition from military to civilian life.

“Florida Atlantic University recognizes the value that military and veteran students bring to our institution,” said Dr. Andrea Oliver, FAU’s visiting associate vice president for student affairs. “We strive to provide our military and veteran students with comprehensive services that not only promote academic success, but prepare our students for future careers.”

                FAU’s Department of Military and Veterans Affairs offers writing workshops, career fairs, networking seminars and social gatherings to its veterans. It has also partnered with local companies to provide mentoring and training for specialized positions to assist in job placement and preparation.
