Information for Veterans/Active Duty Personnel
Whether you’re a veteran, transitioning, or active duty, a Purdue Executive MBA can help you reach your goals.
At Purdue University Krannert School of Management, our executive-format MBA programs are designed to work for you. We know work-life balance is important and that’s why our programs offer a flexible structure. On average, about 20% of each cohort has a military background.
You will complete most of your work on-line, at your convenience, from wherever you are. However, you’ll also benefit from face-to-face classes and networking during quarterly residencies lasting from 1-2 weeks each.
It’s the best of both worlds!
Some quick facts:
- Earn your MBA in just about 19 months
- With 100% eligibility, the program can be fully funded through the Post 9-11 GI Bill.
- The application fee is waived for active duty personnel.
