Baker College business programs ranked in top 25 'Best for Vets'

FLINT, Mich. – Baker College has been named in the top 25 Best for Vets: Business Schools by Military Times, a media organization that provides news to service members and their families.

The Best for Vets national designation includes the MBA and doctorate of business administration programs offered by Baker College Center for Graduate Studies and Baker Online.

“As with all Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Business Schools is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE magazine.

The business schools were evaluated on issues that veterans have identified as important and statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality. The categories were:

·      university culture

·      student support

·      academic outcomes and quality

·      academic policies

·      cost and financial aid

“We are proud to have received the highest rankings available in the areas most important to veterans—university culture and student support,” said Shawn Mann, director of military and veteran education programs for Baker College. “This national ranking is also good news for all our business graduates. In addition to meeting the unique needs of veterans, Baker College's business programs compare favorably with the academic outcomes and quality of colleges and universities nationwide.”

Baker College was ranked No. 23 out of the 64 schools identified in the Best for Vets: Business School list. Approximately 140 colleges and universities were considered.

Each Baker College campus has a veteran certifying official. The main Military and Veteran Student Service Center/lounge is located on the Flint campus in the building for the Center for Graduate Studies.

Baker College also grants academic credits for military training as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE).
