The SIU College of Business was named by Military Times as a Best for Vets business school. The CoB was ranked 23rd among public university business schools.

This is the first year that Military Times ranked business schools and had responses from about 100 colleges and universities. The rankings are based on a number of factors including: percent of military students or students attending on military benefits, types of business degrees offered, Yellow Ribbon participation, acceptance of military training credit, staff members' dedication to veterans' issues, and academic support.

When notified about the award, Jill Gebke, assistant dean said, "We are thrilled to receive such an honor. The SIU College of Business recognizes how important our veterans are as leaders in business and communities. We will continue to create and support programs that help veterans and their dependents succeed."
