EBV Consortium

Mays Business School and seven other universities created the Entrepreneurial Boot Camp for Veterans (EBV). This consortium is committed to supporting members of our nation’s armed forces as they learn how to transition into entrepreneurial roles that benefit society. Following are the members of the EBV Consortium.

Mays Business School is nationally ranked among public business schools for the quality of its academic programs and faculty scholarship.  EBV Texas A&M Program, Staff, and Sponsors
