Admissions: MILITARY OVERVIEW

Named a top military-friendly university by GI Jobs and Military Advanced Education magazines, the School of Business & Leadership (SBL) is honored to welcome active duty members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families. In SBL, we understand the drive, commitment and determination it takes for success, whether in the military, business or leadership of an organization. Therefore, we have crafted each of our master's and doctoral programs to meet the unique needs of active duty members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families who have a desire to achieve the honorable goal of completing a master's or doctoral degree while on the road to a higher calling in the military or private sector.

Our online format allows you to continue your military service or private sector employment anywhere in the world while pursuing your degree at Regent University. In fact, all of our fully-accredited degree programs in the School of Business & Leadership can be completed online with the exception of our two doctoral programs, which only require short on-campus residencies.

Online Degree Programs

Whether you're planning to remain in the military or transition into the private sector, our master's and doctoral programs will enhance your leadership skills and abilities to prepare you to become an entrepreneur, manager, consultant, organizational leader, corporate executive or even be involved in global leadership development. Our academically rigorous programs and global network of faculty and alumni offer you a world of resources.
