The Rawls College of Business was tabbed at No. 13 on Monday in Military Times' Best for Vets: Business Schools 2015 rankings.
“We aim to provide scholarships and other educational opportunities to support our veterans and active service personnel in their pursuit of becoming successful business leaders,” Dean Lance Nail said. “The faculty, staff and administration of Texas Tech appreciate the sacrifices made by the men and women of our military, and we are committed to supporting them in their academic pursuits at our university. The Rawls College is honored to receive this recognition from Military Times for a second year in a row.”
The organization, which consists of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times, focused on culture and curriculum that cater to military veterans when conducting and scoring its third annual Best for Vets: Business Schools survey, a nearly 80-question analysis of a graduate business school's complete offerings for veterans. Best for Vets: Business Schools is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans.
“Dean Nail and his staff have been diligent in their inclusion of our military personnel and veterans into the Rawls College mission,” Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis said. “Our veterans have provided us opportunities and freedoms to live our daily lives and we owe them the chance at a quality education.”
Military Times' Best for Vets survey-based rankings include colleges, career and technical colleges, business schools, franchises, employers and law enforcement.
