Many military veterans have accelerated their transitions by attending the Notre Dame MBA. Click their photos to learn more about why they decided to pursue an MBA, how they chose Mendoza, and what they’re doing now!
Why an MBA? “When I was working with the Junior Military Officer placement organizations, I did not feel as though I had a sufficient business background to make such a critical decision. As a result, my wife and I decided to pursue our MBA͛s after we left active duty to make informed choices about the beginning of our new lives.”
Why Notre Dame? “I chose Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business because it provides the academic challenge I sought, while focusing on the sound ethical principles required of today’s corporate leaders. Moreover, Mendoza allows MBA candidates the opportunity to explore job opportunities around the globe.”
MBA Grad Year: 2014
Military Service: US Marine Corps
Undergraduate University: United States Naval Academy
Why an MBA? “I was working with a couple of junior military officer recruiting firms, but a couple of mentors said ͚Hey, if you can get to a good MBA program, you should try for that instead of going directly from the military into business͛ and I took their advice.”
Why Notre Dame? What really excited me was the breadth of industries that alumni work in and students get exposure to in the classroom. Some MBA programs are known for being feeders for specific industries like banking, consulting, or tech, and I was attracted to the fact that Notre Dame was very well represented across all of them.

Why an MBA? “The military provided great leadership and operational experience; however, when it came to business savvy, I knew I was lacking. An MBA offered the opportunity to round myself out and become a better asset to my future company!”
Why Notre Dame? Mendoza offered a truly collaborative learning environment; I found that both my professors and peers were great resources in better understanding the business world. The ͞team-like͟atmosphere at Notre Dame reminded me of all the things I loved about my time in the Navy!
