Supporting Veterans

Our nation’s veterBEE_for_VETSans are uniquely qualified to continue their service as government leaders. Brookings Executive Education’s (BEE) several distinctive degree and certificate programs for those in or aspiring to leadership positions. The Master of Science in Leadership (MS–Leadership) is an ideal vehicle to provide you with the skills, aptitude, and mind-set to excel in your civilian career. This degree program gives you an opportunity to pursue a top-ranked degree that fits your experience and career aspirations.

The MS–Leadership program provides veterans now in civil service with transformative learning experiences. Many veterans have found that the transition from military to civilian service is not as seamless as it might appear. The leadership skills that lead to advancement in the military are not always the same ones that lead to promotion in civil service. BEE’s Leading Thinking™ curriculum provides a pivot point for veterans aspiring to excellence in their civilian careers.

In recognition of the service and sacrifice of veterans, Washington University in St. Louis proudly supports the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Yellow Ribbon Program. Honorably discharged U.S. veterans with at least 36 months of active duty could be eligible for 100% tuition benefits. You can also use your GI Bill® benefits to earn the MS-Leadership degree.
