Combining Army leadership experience with MBA beneficial
FAYETTE, Iowa (June 11, 2008) - Upper Iowa University has been selected to provide online master of business administration degrees to transitioning Army officers and NCOs through its Military MBA program.
UIU joins Colorado State University and the University of Virginia Darden School of Business as the only providers of online MBA courses within a consortium of colleges and universities that form the Military MBA program.
"The Military MBA Program continues Upper Iowa University's long-standing service to members of the military," said Online Program Director David Binder. "We are pleased to be co-sponsoring the Military MBA Program with two other outstanding institutions in this endeavor." He added, "Upper Iowa's MBA program is recognized nationally as one of the premier programs for members of the military and their families."
Designed for Army personnel interested in moving up the ranks or transitioning to a future career in business, the Military MBA program provides easy access to some of the nation's best MBA programs delivered on campus or online, including scholarship and financial aid information.
The consensus among active-duty officers is that an MBA degree gave them an edge for promotions or more desirable assignments, while statistics show military MBAs in the private sector are drawing 35% more annual salary than traditional MBA graduates.
The Military MBA Program is supported by the Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP). ACAP provides soldiers and their families with transition and job assistance services on major Army installations and limited long-distance assistance for those not on, or near, an installation.
