Baruch College Named "Military Friendly" School
Receives High Ratings in Two Key Categories



Military Friendly Schools

 

NEW YORK, NY November 11, 2016 Baruch College was named a “Military Friendly” school by Victory Media, originator of the Military Friendly employment, entrepreneurship and education resources for veterans and their families. This designation singles out Baruch College for its support of the military community.

The School also received high ratings in two key categories: 90% in “Academic Policies & Compliance” 73% in “Culture & Commitment.” These ratings reflect the extent to which each institution exceeds the benchmark standards for Military Friendly.

The Military Friendly brand is nationally recognized as being the trusted resource on post-military education and employment options for veterans and military families. According to the website: “Developed through more than a decade of proprietary research, Military Friendly ratings and resources provide service members and their families with the information they need to make decisions about civilian careers and education opportunities.”

 

Methodology:

Published since 2003, the list of schools are assessed through the evaluation of an institution’s public data along with data obtained through the organization’s survey. Schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than in previous years via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the assistance of an independent research firm and an advisory council.
