BUFFALO, N.Y. — Veterans, active duty and reserve members of the U.S. armed forces can learn how to leverage their military background in a career strategy at the third annual University at Buffalo School of Management Military MBA Preview Day, 1-5:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 in the Alfiero Center on UB’s North Campus.
The event will provide service members the opportunity to participate in a customized MBA class, hear from a panel of current students with military backgrounds and meet employers and alumni interested in MBA candidates with military experience.
“Veterans and current service members are a great fit for the UB MBA program,” says Erin O’Brien, assistant dean and director of graduate programs at the UB School of Management. “They bring leadership, teamwork, dedication, motivation and focus, and a UB MBA can help hone and shape these skills for successful use in a commercial marketplace.”
Kevin Rogers, a current Executive MBA student and colonel and inspector general of the 107th Airlift Wing in the New York Air National Guard, will serve as keynote speaker and discuss his experience in the EMBA program as a member of the military.
The day will conclude with a veteran community reception, a social event where prospective students and their families can meet with School of Management representatives and a number of organizations for veterans.
UB has been ranked among national universities in U.S. News & World Report’s listing of “Best Colleges for Veterans.” The ranking evaluates schools that participate in federal initiatives to help veterans and active services members apply, pay for and complete their degrees.
