With Memorial Day quickly approaching, the The University of Alabama Executive MBA Program would like to honor those who lost their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces as well as the men and women who continue to serve our nation.

During the May 3, 2014 Commencement, 13 graduates of the Manderson Graduate School of Business (EMBA and MBA programs) were recognized as military veterans during the ceremony and wore special cords provided by the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs to reflect their status.  The Executive MBA Program has been a long time supporter of the military; the program waives veterans’ application fees and offers an award to those who have exhausted their VA benefits to enter the EMBA program.

As the American flag is lowered to half-staff until noon on Memorial Day, we, like the rest of the nation, will be remembering our veterans and military for their sacrifices and service.

Please join us in recognizing those who gave their lives as well as those still serving our nation on this Memorial Day.

Roll Tide!
