About the Program

Developed through more than a decade of proprietary research, Military Friendly® ratings and resources provide service members and their families with the information they need to make decisions about civilian careers and education opportunities.

We work with thousands of schools and employers to help them assess their efforts to attract and support this group of talented individuals.  Military Friendly® schools and employers represent the top tier of institutions who provide the best opportunities for military service members and spouses.

Our survey-driven Military Friendly® lists have been published every year since 2003. Today our Military Friendly® Schools and Military Friendly® Employers lists are published annually in G.I. Jobs® , Military Spouse and Vetrepreneur® magazines. For specific information on each list, including how the lists are derived, see our methodology page.
