The Institute of Business & Medical Careers College has Been Honored as a 2013 Military Friendly School, Participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Offers Scholarships to Military Personnel and Families
Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming (September 17, 2012): Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named the Institute of Business & Medical Careers (IBMC) to the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list.
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and student spouses to ensure their success on campus.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows the Institute of Business & Medical Careers’ commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows, we are thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” said Sean. Complete survey methodology is available at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/methodology
The Military Friendly Schools ® media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey results that comprise the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country. A full list of board members can be found at http://militaryfriendlyschools.com/board.
