Military Support Programs

If you’re an active-duty military member, veteran, or family member interested in military MBA programs or other graduate business school programs, take advantage of the degree offerings and support offered through Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management.

Our proud history of serving military students dates back to 1947, when we began providing benefits through the original GI Bill. Today, we provide a number of dedicated services for military applicants, enriching your student experience while helping you navigate your benefits.

“For me, Syracuse was the right fit for many reasons. One, I know I am getting a quality education. Second, they offer classes that allow me to do it on my own time.” — Geoffrey Haines, U.S Air Force Veteran, MBA@Syracuse Graduate ’16

One of the highlights of military veteran support at Syracuse is our Office of Veteran and Military Affairs. Established in 2014, this office oversees all programs related to military and veteran benefits and is constantly evolving to better serve students and MBA applicants with military backgrounds.

“Syracuse didn’t throw all the information at me and say, ‘Here you go.’ Instead, they assisted me and let me know exactly what I needed to do, and provided the help I needed.” — Danielle Sheppard, U.S. Army Veteran, MBA@Syracuse Student
