Military Candidates

Unique perspectives on leadership and management

At Katz, we appreciate not only the service of our men and women in uniform, but the experience members of the armed forces bring to our MBA programs. We find military students bring a unique perspective on leadership and management to our classroom discussions. Our faculty and students value the insights and work ethic of our military students.

A Katz MBA can help to prepare you to

  • Start your military commitment after ROTC or graduating from a service academy
  • Transition out of the military into the corporate world
  • Return to the military after completing your MBA
  • Balance your career ambitions with your reservist commitment.

Katz is committed to helping military personnel transform their professional lives. Our transformation framework provides you with resources to build on the skills you already possess and to develop the skills you will need to take your career to the next level. A degree from Katz ensures you will be well equipped to make management-level decisions, lead people, and either move up the military ranks or climb the corporate ladder.
