Make the most of your transition from the military to a successful career with a UB MBA.

You've got skills. At a young age, you've already demonstrated leadership, team building, critical thinking and the ability to assess problems and make decisions in difficult and dynamic environments. Now, as you transition from the military, those are the exact skills employers are seeking. The UB MBA will teach you to apply those skills in your civilian career.

Why an MBA?

As a credential, an MBA is your passport to greater things. It’s time to embrace your ambition. With an MBA, you will learn how businesses operate, whether you want to run a company or start your own. You will advance your leadership instincts into leadership skills to provide problem solving in the real world.

Investing in your education will pay immediate and lifelong dividends. And Bloomberg notes that “an MBA may be the professional degree with the quickest ROI in the U.S.”

The UB MBA provides:

  • A badge of credibility that tells employers that you have business smarts, management skills and financial understanding
  • Opportunities to expand your professional connections beyond your military network
  • Tools to help you transform your military background into a career-ready résumé
