Why Choose The Citadel?


As a naval officer, I am faced with increasingly complex operational, ethical and leadership challenges. It was imperative I obtain the best possible leadership education in order to successfully meet those challenges. When I began my research to find the right academic institution, I had two primary considerations: Flexibility (due to my military lifestyle) and a reputation for excellence that was instantly recognizable amongst leaders from all organizations.

There are similar online programs available at other well-known universities, but after considering The Citadel’s strong support of veterans, high academic standards, the famous alumni network and their 175-year history of producing world-class leaders, I realized that there was only one choice.
