Just in time for Memorial Day, when the nation honors those who are serving or have served in the military, U.S. News & World Report released a survey of online programs for veterans at 737 universities and colleges.
George Mason University’s online Master of Business Administration program was tied at No. 31 for best online MBA program.
The rankings were determined by examining affordability, accessibility and reputation. Other factors included how much financial assistance is available, which federal aid programs the schools recognize and faculty credentials.
“Mason values the experience and diversity veterans bring to both the campus and online environment,” said Jennifer Connors, director of Mason’s Office of Military Services. “We are committed to creating a pathway to success for our student veterans.”
Mason also has been named a Military Friendly school for the past six years for its demonstrated commitment to supporting student veterans on campus and in their careers, according to the website GIJobs.com.
Mason, with almost 34,000 students, has more than 3,000 military-related students, including active duty, veterans, reservists, guardsmen and dependents.
