Park Universitys School of Business Ranked Best for Vets

Parkville, Mo.—March 20, 2014 — Park University’s School of Business has been selected the No. 8 “Best for Vets” business school in the country by Military Times magazine, earning a top 10 designation for the second year in a row. In addition, as a part of the rankings, Park was one of only three schools to receive four stars out of a possible four in regards to both staff support and academic support.

This is the second “Best for Vets” designation Park University has received in the past six months from Military Times, an independent source for news and information for the military community. In November 2013, the University made the “Best for Vets: Colleges 2014” list for the second year in a row. Park ranked No. 5 among all private colleges/universities in the country and No. 8 overall in the “online and nontraditional” category (schools that serve military students primarily online or through a network of small campuses).

“Best for Vets: Business Schools 2014” is intended to assist veterans find the business degree programs that are fully equipped to provide them with the educational resources they need to succeed in a corporate business climate. Only institutions that offer graduate business degrees were considered for this review. The schools were evaluated based on five categories: university culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies, and cost and financial aid.

Brad Kleindl, Ph.D., dean of Park University’s School of Business, said, “It is an honor to once again be listed in the top 10 of the Military Times ‘Best for Vets: Business Schools’ list. This ranking places Park in the company of some of the most well-known business schools in the country. As a veteran myself, I know Park’s School of Business looks forward to continuing to serve our veteran student population.”

“The University is proud of the tremendous honor to be selected as a top ‘Best for Vets: Business School’ two years in a row,” said Stephen Terry, director of Park University’s Department of Military and Veteran Student Services.

“The extraordinary services that the university provides at its Parkville Campus, online and at the campus centers across the country are unmatched,” Terry said. “Park truly does serve as a role model in the military community for other institutions to look to for outstanding support programs, high quality academic degrees and student services.”
