Berkeley-Haas ranked #16 in the “Best for Vets” ranking published today (March 10) by Military Times, which collected responses from some 140 colleges and universities. Haas is the only top business school (as measured by other national rankings such as U.S. News and Businessweek) to make Military Times’ final “Best for Vets” list of 64 schools.
Military Times scored schools’ survey responses to both its business schools survey and to parts of its colleges survey based on what veterans have said is important to them as well as applying its own editorial judgment. Military Times also factored in Education Department statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality.
Overall, schools were evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies, and cost and financial aid. The value of each section was comparable, but university culture and student support counted the most, and financial aid counted the least.
