Orion Alumni Further their Career with the Jack Welch Management Institute Online MBA Program

Veterans are increasingly turning to advanced degrees to further their careers, with an estimated 10.4% of male veterans and 11% of female veterans having earned such a degree in 2009, according to the Educational Attainment of Veterans: 2000 to 2009 by the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics. They go onto conclude that “the percentage of Veterans with an advanced degree was higher than that of non-Veterans each year [from 2000 – 2009] and increased significantly over the decade.” Additionally, Military.com points out that veterans with an MBA in particular demand more salary than their civilian counterparts, an average of $109,720 compared to $92,360.

"I am a career military officer with a lot of experience leading and managing. Yet, I wanted to learn outside traditional military education programs in order to advance,” explains George Degnon, Brigadier General, Commander, 113th Wing, District of Columbia Air National Guard, “The Jack Welch Management Institute gave me the opportunity to learn organizational dynamics from Jack Welch - one of the business world's legends. The program provides the right combination of learning flexibility needed by working adults and class structure required to succeed. Part of my learning included the discovery of many parallels between business and the military."

JWMI offers a scholarship to active duty service members that can be combined with military tuition assistance and significantly reduce the out-of-pocket cost for tuition, or those who qualify for GI Bill benefits may choose to use their earned benefits to fund their MBA at JWMI.
