HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Northern Kentucky University’s Haile/US Bank College of Business is among the best business schools in the nation for military veterans, according to The Military Times.
The publication’s annual “Best for Vets: Business Schools 2016” list ranks the Haile/US Bank College of Business 31st among business schools across the U.S. The college received high marks for the level of support students receive from faculty and staff.
“We are proud to welcome military veterans to our college, and we work each day to help them succeed within and outside of the classroom,” said Dr. Rebecca Porterfield, dean of the NKU Haile/US Bank College of Business. “We are pleased that those efforts have been recognized nationally.”
This is the second year NKU’s College of Business has been included in the Military Times rankings, and it is again the only institution in Greater Cincinnati to make the list.
In November, The Military Times also ranked NKU 36th in the nation for the level of service and support it provides to military veterans and their families across all colleges and programs.
Also last year, NKU was named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media for the sixth year, and was named a top school in the 2016 Military Advanced Education Guide to Colleges & Universities for the second year.
“We work hard each day to support our veterans and their families, and we are thankful that those efforts have earned us a national reputation as an institution where veterans can have an outstanding experience on the educational and personal levels,” said Dave Merriss, assistant director of NKU’s Veterans Resource Station.
NKU serves more than 500 veterans, active family members, National Guardsmen, Reservists, and ROTC students. The Veterans Resource Station provides seamless assistance with applications, financial aid, VA education benefits, advising, registration, career services and more.
