If you’re a current or former member of the armed forces, you’ve found a welcoming home at Mays Business School, Texas A&M University and the Bryan/College Station area.
Texas A&M’s long history is intertwined with the military. Founded in 1876, the university’s charter as an institution of higher education required every student to participate in military training. While that requirement is no longer in place and our student body has become much more diverse, Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets remains one of the nation’s largest ROTC programs outside of the service academies. Furthermore, hallowed campus-wide traditions such as the 12th Man, Silver Taps, and Aggie Muster have root in the Corps.
Our long relationship with the military makes Texas A&M a top choice for current service personnel and veterans. Today, more than 3,800 students – which include National Guard members, Reservists, active duty, veterans, and children or spouses of those who have served or currently serve in the military – receive veterans’ education benefits at our university.
To support these students, we offer a variety of resources to support you. These include:
- Mays Full-Time MBA program’s team management approach supports you as you take the next step professionally. Our program helps you tailor your MBA studies so that you can capitalize on the training you received in the military, enhance your leadership capacity, and smoothly transition professionally to civilian life. We also can help you develop the knowledge and skills needed to be a strong transformational leader if you decide to return to the military.
- Mays Career Management Services can assist you if you are seeking a job outside the military. Our staff helps you prepare through providing support in all aspects of career management (such as resume writing, networking, and interviewing) while you’re a student. This office also will serve as a valuable resource throughout your professional career.
- Mays Full-Time MBA program as well as several Mays student organizations host a variety of events that will help your spouse and family feel they are an integral part of Aggieland. These events include tailgates, barbeques and family picnics.
Texas A&M also has a Veteran Resource and Support Center, which provides support through a variety of outreach efforts, such as the Aggie Veteran Network, PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veteran Education), Troops to College, and community resources. They also offer Aggie Ring scholarships, so our veterans can get financial support for an iconic symbol of the Aggie Spirit.
