Stetson creates an environment suitable to veterans while offering resources to aid them in success.

When it comes to veterans seeking a business degree, Stetson University is a perfect fit, according to Military Times, which named Stetson’s School of Business Administration a “Best for Vets: Business Schools” in its annual 2014 rankings. Military Times named Stetson University as the 46th best school in the nation for veterans to attend.

Overall, schools were evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies, and cost and financial aid. The value of each section was comparable, but university culture and student support counted the most, and financial aid counted the least.

Stetson prides itself on creating an environment suitable to veterans while offering many different resources to aid in them in success. Stetson has committed $800,000 to offset the cost of education to a limited number of military veterans across all of the university's full-time and part-time undergraduate and graduate programs as part of its participation in the GI Bill's Yellow Ribbon Program.

“The Post-9/11 G.I. Bill covers my tuition for the first semester then Stetson covers the second semester so that I can go to school for the full year without any student loans,” said Stetson student Christopher Griffin, who served as a medic in the Army for four years.

In addition to being named a Best for Vets school, Stetson also has been recognized as a “Military Friendly School” the past two years. This designation is given to colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

The rankings are published in full in Military Times’ EDGE magazine and online at
