On March 10, Military Times announced its Best for Vets: Business Schools 2014 rankings. The Extended Academic Programs (EAP) – School of Extended Studies was ranked number three on the list of 64 schools.

The organization, comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times, focused on culture and curriculum that caters to military veterans when conducting and scoring the second annual Best for Vets: Business Schools survey, a highly respected, nearly 80-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans.

“As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Business Schools is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE magazine.

“What a huge honor! With only 64 schools in the rankings, it is gratifying to have made the top of the list. UIW has always done everything we can for our active duty and veteran population, so to have scored at the top of this group is reflective of all of the hard work and commitment shown by staff and faculty alike,” said Dr. Cyndi Wilson Porter, vice president for EAP.

Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or program will truly benefit them. The rankings factor in academic quality, outcomes and policies, school culture, student support, and cost.
