Posted: Monday, April 6th 2015 at 8:14 AM

Northern Arizona University’s W. A. Franke College of Business (FCB) has once again been named one of the nation’s top business schools for veterans by Military Times in its “Best for Vets: Business Schools 2015” rankings. The college, home to its own Veteran Student Center, ranked No. 4 overall among business schools and is the top business school for military veterans in Arizona.

“Having a veteran student center strategically placed in the business college is what makes us stand out among other institutions,” said Laurie Jordon, coordinator for the Veteran Student Center in FCB. “We have the ability to provide individual support to veterans seeking degrees in business or hotel and restaurant management from academics to career development.”

The Center  was created through a donation from a veteran and FCB alumnus and is the first veteran success center in the nation dedicated to a business school.

The FCB VSC opened its doors in the Fall of 2013 and has been ranked in Military Times’ Top 10 twice. “For the second year in a row, FCB has earned this prestigious designation because of the dedication of leadership to create a welcoming, supportive university community,” said Andrew Griffin, director for NAU’s Office of Military and Veteran Affairs.
