MBA Programs for Military and Active Duty

Military Community at Bauer

We appreciate the value and leadership that our veteran students bring to our Full-Time, Professional, Online and Executive MBA Programs. Military service experience truly enhances the MBA classroom, and Bauer’s diverse and welcoming environment is a perfect fit for our veterans who are enhancing their careers or re-entering the civilian workforce.

We are privileged to serve our military members by providing them individualized career counselling and coaching, networking opportunities, support through our MBA financial aid advisor, and assistance with military and veteran education benefits through University Veteran Services. Our full-campus program also has the benefit of offering full Hazlewood benefits to our Full-Time and Professional MBA students. Hazlewood benefits currently cover close to half of our Executive MBA tuitions costs.
