Military Veterans: The MBA and Things to Consider When Applying to Business School


Scott Poitevent, Second Year student and a graduate from the U.S. Naval Academy, was recently featured in the Service Academy Career Conference (SACC) blog, “MBA Mondays,” where he discusses factors he considered as a veteran while researching MBA programs — educational experience, student body, a school’s veteran support system and finances. Read his post for useful advice on “Things to Consider When Applying to Business School.”

Students with military experience comprise between 7 – 9% of the incoming Darden class each year. To learn more about the School, we encourage all military veterans to attend one of our Open Houses this fall. In addition to visiting a class, meeting current students, attending various panel discussions and touring the school, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a Veterans Benefits Q&A session.
