If you’re a returning military veteran with business school aspirations, now is a good time to be you. A number of schools, including Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business, are scrambling to recruit ex-military types, offering them a break on tuition or special programs tailored to their needs. Now one B-school is trying to recruit vets before they become vets—ahead of the dog tags, crew cut, and first day of basic training.
The program at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business allows graduating ROTC students from the university to apply to the MBA program before fulfilling their four-year to five-year commitments to the Army. If accepted, their spots are guaranteed until their tours of duty are complete.
