Credit Where Credit is Due: Veteran and Service Member Pathway to the MBA

SUNY Empire State College

SUNY Empire State College program will award graduate-level credit toward an MBA for relevant military training.

Implementation Dates: April 2012-December 2014

Description: The program assigns American Council on Education credit values for military training specialties that are relevant to civilian business leadership, reducing the time and tuition costs of program completion for many veterans. The program will also replace a traditional introductory MBA course with one specifically designed to serve veterans transitioning to civilian life and business leadership. The program's overall goal is to ease veterans' transition into civilian business leadership.
