William & Mary Proudly Welcomes Active Duty Students & Veterans

Located in Williamsburg, Virginia, William & Mary's Raymond A. Mason School of Business is at the heart of one of the most military-dense regions in the United States. Because of this, we are uniquely positioned to understand and support the invaluable contributions that active duty service members and military veterans can make to our university community. That's why we strive to offer programs that are conveniently accessible online, along with a host of additional accommodations to support the educational goals of our servicemen and women in all branches of our military.

Center for Military Transition

The Raymond A. Mason School of Business’ Center for Military Transition (CMT) is a national leader in helping veterans like you transition into a successful civilian life in high-level management positions. Programs offered through the CMT help mitigate the challenges you may face as a transitioning service member and as a graduate business student.

Programs offered by the CMT include:

Flourishing Through Life Transitions
