Honoring the ultimate leaders: Veterans with MBAs

 

 

Veterans make great business leaders. Employers know it. As a result, veteran recruiting goals have grown exponentially over the past few years. And as more and more military veterans return home after serving our country abroad, they are heading to graduate business schools to earn their MBA.

Today, 15% of the MBA students currently at the world's top business schools have military experience. Of the 21,295 resumes currently in our database:

  • 1,046 mention the word "Military"
  • 709 Army
  • 439 Navy
  • 288 Naval
  • 247 Air Force
  • 434 Marine
  • 42 Coast Guard
  • 56 National Guard

And more than 14% of the resumes from 53,486 registered alumni who graduated from those top schools mention military experience as well.

  • 2,289 mention the word "Military"
  • 1,445 Army
  • 1,012 Navy
  • 644 Naval
  • 705 Air Force
  • 1,050 Marine
