CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities program recently added Cornell University to its Consortium of Schools.
Mike Haynie, EBV founder and executive director of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families said in a recent Newswise article that Cornell University will be the first member of the consortium to serve as a ‘specialty training school.’
“Beginning in 2012, EBV applicants who express a desire to launch and grow a business in the hospitality or real estate industry will receive their training through Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration,” Haynie was quoted as saying in the article. “This specialty expertise will be focused on empowering veterans who want to launch hospitality ventures, helping them reach their business ownership dreams.”
LSU joined the EBV Consortium of Schools in 2010 and is among participating campuses including Syracuse University, Cornell University, the University of Connecticut School of Business, Mays Business School at Texas A&M, UCLA Anderson School of Management, Florida State University's College of Business and the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University.
