YSU business school rated "best for vets"

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - For the past five years, Youngstown State University has been designated a military friendly school by G.I. Jobs Magazine.

Now, the Williamson School of Business Administration is being recognized as one of the best for vets by the Military Times.

"A very prestigious publication throughout the military," said Rick Williams, coordinator of the YSU Office of Veteran Affairs. "They were rating business schools across the country and we ranked 40th nationwide."

YSU is one of only three Ohio schools to make the list, along with Ohio State and Bowling Green. The Best for Vets ranking evaluates many factors that make a school a good fit for veterans.

Dr. Betty Jo Licata, Dean of the Williamson School of Business, believes a key factor is the availability of the MBA programs to veterans. "We have both an on campus program and an on-line MBA program. Also, YSU has a very competitive tuition structure," Dr. Licata said.

"We waive all application and orientation fees for our veteran students," Williams added.

YSU's new $1.2 million dollar Veterans Resource Center is nearing completion on Wick Avenue. The center will improve and expand services to veterans in attaining their educational goals. The new center is scheduled for completion by midsummer and be in full operation by the fall semester.

The YSU Office of Veterans Affairs currently serves about 400 veteran students.
