Best for Vets BusinessNorthern Arizona University’s W.A. Franke College of Business has been named one of the nation’s top business schools for veterans by Military Times in its “Best for Vets: Business Schools 2014” rankings.

The college, home to the university’s Veteran Student Center, ranked No. 6 among public business schools, No. 10 overall and is the top business school for military veterans in Arizona.

“This is the most respected ranking system currently in use by our military and veterans as they consider schools to attend under the Post-9/11 GI Bill,” said Andrew Griffin, director for NAU’s Office of Military and Veteran Affairs. “This prestigious ranking is a tribute to the W.A. Franke College of Business and NAU for their dedication to serving our military and veteran students in higher education.”

This is the second “Best for Vets” recognition NAU has received from Military Times. In November, NAU was named a top school for military veterans in Arizona and throughout the Southwest, and among the top third of colleges and universities nationally.

The Times’ editorially independent news project evaluated many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans. Overall, schools were evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies and cost and financial aid.
