            For the second year in a row, Black Hills State University has made the list for the Best Business Schools for Veterans.

For the second year in a row, Black Hills State University has made the list for the Best Business Schools for Veterans, according to an announcement yesterday by Military Times.

BHSU was ranked in the top 50 universities nationwide. "It is an honor for the Black Hills State University School of Business to have been selected for the Military Times Best for Vets:  Business Schools 2014 rankings," said Dr. Priscilla Romkema, dean of the College of Business and Natural Sciences. "BHSU has a strong commitment to veterans, military personnel and families.  Thus, to be recognized with this special distinction is a tribute to those who serve our country as well as to the faculty and staff in the BHSU School of Business."  

The list, put out by the military news sources, ranks the schools based on surveys sent in by the universities. About 140 colleges and universities participated in the detailed, nearly 80-question survey which delved into school culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies, and cost and financial aid.

The rankings are published in full in the March issue of Military Times EDGE magazine, the premier publication for military transition, and online at, as well as,, and

"As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Business Schools  is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans," said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE magazine.

Last fall, the University was ranked among the Military Times 2014 Best for Vets four-year colleges. It was also named to the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools, the fourth consecutive year that BHSU has been recognized with the honor.

BHSU, which has the highest percentage of veteran students among South Dakota schools, has a long history of working with the military to provide educational options for veterans and active military people.
