In 2019, the Moore School implemented a targeted military MBA initiative to encourage more military veterans to pursue their MBAs at the University of South Carolina.
Tying into to the national Hire Our Heroes enterprise, the Moore School is taking the lead among academic units on a larger initiative at the University of South Carolina to increase recruiting of and support for student veterans.
“We have a moral responsibility toward veterans,” said Jennifer Ninh, managing director for full-time MBA programs.
Ninh is head of the MBA military strategy team, which began in the Moore School in fall 2018, and is on the university-wide military council.
According to the military strategy team, top global companies are actively seeking candidates with MBAs and military experience. Those holding top security clearance are in demand for some of the highest-paid post-MBA positions.
In 2018, the Moore School joined the MBA Veteran’s Network, a national networking organization that connects student veterans and alumni of the world’s top-ranked universities with prospective employers.
Student veterans are looking for an education that can translate their international military experience to a global private-sector career, Ninh said, and they are choosing the Moore School because of its consistent No. 1 U.S. News & World Report ranking among international MBA programs.
Veterans also choose the Moore School and UofSC for its support for veterans. Read more here.
