The Penn State Smeal MBA Program will host a special Military MBA for a Day event on Monday, Nov. 11. All military personnel and veterans considering an MBA are invited to attend.

“Penn State is a very military-friendly university, and the Veterans Outreach office is devoted to helping students with the GI Bill and other programs.”

The Penn State Smeal MBA Program has been named to the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools, which honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that work to embrace and ensure the success of military service members, veterans, and spouses.

“Penn State is a very military-friendly university, and the Veterans Outreach office is devoted to helping students with the GI Bill and other programs,” said Erik Orient, student services director in the Penn State Smeal MBA Program and a retired Marine. “And within our MBA program, the MBA Military and Veterans Association is designed specifically to support our veteran population.”

MBA for a Day events all include a class observation, building tour, and the opportunity to interact with staff and faculty. The Military MBA for a Day will also include a chance to meet veterans and military personnel who are currently students in the program. A representative from Veterans Affairs will be on hand to talk about the GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon, and funding.

“Military and veteran students tend to excel in the classroom and on the career front.”

In addition, a special coffee break event will celebrate Veterans Day and men and women who serve in the military.

“Military and veteran students tend to excel in the classroom and on the career front,” said Stacey Dorang Peeler, admissions director for the Penn State Smeal MBA Program. “Many of the skills learned through military service—leadership, communication, and discipline, to name a few—serve an MBA student and future business leader very well.”

The Military MBA for a Day event is free, and you can register now.
