Notre Dame is a Military Friendly Campus—officially and unofficially.  

In 2015, named the Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business a Military Friendly School for 2016 (a designation earned by only the top colleges and universities in the country who are doing the most to serve veterans). But we have a long history of honoring and educating veterans.  

With a One-Year MBA from Notre Dame, you’ll not only earn an advanced degree in a welcoming environment, you’ll also learn how to hone the skillset you gained in the military—and strategically put those skills to work in the world of business.

"I was looking for the right size because I wanted close relationships with my classmates. I wanted the right courses that would help me think more strategically and solve business problems more effectively. I was looking for the right international opportunities. Really, I wanted a school with the right personality with good, true people who are receptive and interactive and invested. Notre Dame met these requirements and helped me land where I want to be."

"For me it was about the quality of the education and the quality of the institution … it’s finding a place that has the same values you do,  it's finding an institution you want to be part of for the rest of your life."
